I'm trying to setup 'scan to Pc' with our Lexmark X364dn to a Windows 7 Pc. When I try to setup a Scan Profile and I click "Create" it opens the Java window but the choices are all blank, I can't set anything up. I update the printer firmware to the latest version, I down graded my Java to 8 U45. How can I get this to work?

James, Thank you for your response. I did how ever get my scanning to work but not without a lot of trial and tribulation. I had an old WinXP machine not being used; I set it up on the network and I was able to open IE8 w/ java and setup a scan profile like the instructions tell you to.
How ever, it wouldn't save the profile to the printer permanently so I had to leave that PC running and the profile open all the time, that wasn't going to work for me. So I downloaded and installed the Lexmark Scan back utility and was able to install that onto my Win7 machine.
I still have to open that software first before scanning but at least I can now scan to my PC with the printer/scanner that's in my office. I was hoping that once I setup a profile it would save to the printer so that all I would have to do was choose the "Scan" button, select a Profile, then scan to my PC.
But this way will work, it saves me from having to walk to another part of the building to scan to my PC. Thanks again for your help and suggestion.
