Canon LiDE 110 Driver & Software
Want to keep using your
Canon LiDE 110 on Windows 10?
We reverse engineered the Canon LiDE 110 driver and included it in VueScan so you can keep using your old scanner.
How do I keep using my Canon LiDE 110?
The Canon LiDE 110 scanner is a great scanner. It’s inexpensive, small, powered by the USB cable, and a great scanner to have. But it doesn’t work on modern operating systems like Windows 10 or macOS Monterey.
Why is that? Because when a new operating system comes out, things change. The operating system vendor changes how things work or changes what kind of software can run. Scanner vendors like Canon need to keep compatibility by releasing updates to their software. A lot of times they’ll do this for one or two operating system releases. So if the scanner came out during the Windows XP era, maybe they’ll release an update for Windows Vista and Windows 7, but stop when Windows 8 or Windows 10 comes out.
But there is a solution. We don’t think you should have to throw away your scanner just because the software stops working. We also don’t think you should have to keep a computer running old operating systems to use your scanner. So we created VueScan.

We reverse engineered over 7000 scanners (including the Canon LiDE 110), rebuilt the driver for modern operating systems, and included it inside VueScan so you can keep using the scanner you already have.
You can download VueScan for free, and try it before you buy it. You can try it for as long as you like, but all scans will have a watermark on them until you purchase, so you can make sure it works with your scanner and the way you want to use it. In addition to the Canon LiDE 110 we also have a list of supported scanners on our website if you want to make sure your scanner is compatible before downloading. Although the easiest way to see if your scanner works with VueScan is to download and try it out.
If you have any questions about using VueScan or getting your scanner working again, feel free to contact us. We’re here to help.
Does the Canon LiDE 110 work on macOS Monterey?
Unfortunately it does not using Canon’s software. If you look on Canon’s website you can see that they say that there is “There is no software for the OS Version you selected.”

But there is a solution. Just download VueScan and it will automatically recognize that your LiDE 110 is connected to your computer. Once it’s installed and running, just press the ‘Scan’ button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and it will start scanning from your LiDE 110. From there, you can scan documents, photos, or whatever else you’d like to scan and save them to JPG, PDF, TIFF, and more.
Not only does VueScan work with macOS Monterey, but you can also use VueScan on all older versions of macOS. So if you have an older Mac that you want to connect to your LiDE 110, you can do that too.
Downloading and installing VueScan is easy. Just visit our download page, select ‘Download for macOS’, and then run the installer. Once it’s installed, just connect your scanner to your computer with a USB cable and launch VueScan. It will automatically detect your scanner and you can start scanning right away.
Does the Canon LiDE 110 work on Windows 11?
According to Canon’s website they do have software available for Windows 11. They have both their MP Navigator Software and their Quick Menu software.

However, many customers have reported mix results using their LiDE 110 with Canon’s Software on Windows 10 and 11. Here’s one comment from a user:
Scanner not working with Windows 10
I have downloaded the latest driver for my Canon LIDE110 scanner for windows 10, but not working since I upgraded to Windows 10
Canon’s driver installation can often to be unreliable. Since it was written for a much older version of Windows
So for multiple reasons, you may still want to use VueScan instead. VueScan is one software package that you can use with all of your scanners. It also provides a much easier to use user interface and much more control of the scanner than Canon’s software.
Do you need to uninstall Canon’s software before installing VueScan?
No, you don’t need to. Just download VueScan and run the installer. Once it’s installed, connect your scanner and launch VueScan. It will automatically detect that your LiDE 110 is connected and start scanning. You can then save your scans in a variety of formats like JPG, PDF, TIFF, and more.
You can also use VueScan with all older versions of Windows. So if you have an older computer that you want to connect to your LiDE 110, you can do that too.
Does the Canon LiDE 110 work on Linux?
According to Canon’s website they do not include any kind of Linux support. For either 32-bit Linux, 64-bit Linux or ARM Linux. VueScan supports each of these operating system variants.

Using VueScan, you can download a
.tgz that contains just the VueScan binary, a
.deb debian/ubuntu package, or a
.rpm red hat package.
VueScan works great on Linux. It’s one of the few commercial options for scanning on Linux and supports all the same scanners as the Windows and Linux. It doesn’t require SANE drivers in most cases (although it does fall back to SANE in some situations, so it should be installed).
Once it’s installed, connect your scanner and launch VueScan. It will automatically detect that your LiDE 110 is connected and start scanning. You can then save your scans in a variety of formats like JPG, PDF, TIFF, and more.
Then just open it up and press the ‘Scan’ button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. You’ll be scanning in minutes.
Should I buy a new scanner or keep using my Canon LiDE 110?
If you’re trying to decide whether to buy a new scanner or keep using your current one, we say go with the latter option. Newer scanners might boast a few improvements, but they’re not necessarily worth the money or the environmental impact. In our opinion, the software that comes with new scanners isn’t as good as VueScan, which is a program that works with most scanners. Plus, buying a new scanner creates unnecessary electronic waste, which is bad for the planet. So if your current scanner is still working well, stick with it and save yourself some money and effort.
There are several advantages to keeping the scanner you have and using software to solve any problems you may be experiencing. First of all, it’s much faster. You can be up and running again in minutes, rather than having to go to a store, choose a scanner, and wait for it to arrive. Or even slower, buying one online and waiting a few days for it to arrive. And second, it’s often more cost-effective. You won’t have to spend any money on a new scanner, and buying VueScan is a fraction of the cost of a new scanner. So don’t immediately head for the store – try using VueScan first. It could save you time, money, and hassle in the long run.
How to troubleshoot your Canon LiDE 110 Scanner
Even when VueScan is installed correctly, some users may still experience problems getting their Canon LiDE 110 to work. If this is the case, we recommend trying a few troubleshooting steps first. Check that the USB cord is securely plugged in and that the scanner is turned on. If the scanner is still not responding, try unplugging it and then plugging it back in again. If that doesn’t work, try using a different USB cable. The older ones that came with your scanner often have much shorter lifetimes than the scanners and need to be replaced sooner. You may also need to restart your computer. If the scanner still does not work, please contact our customer support team for further assistance. Thanks for using VueScan!
VueScan is a great option for those of us who want to keep using our older scanners but don’t want to deal with the hassle of installing new drivers every time we upgrade our operating system. VueScan works with most scanners and provides an easy way to get high-quality scans without having to worry about driver compatibility issues.
