Kodak Imaging for Windows XP

Filed under: Tips n Tricks — Rahul Patel @ 7:04 pm

You may have heard some of your Windows XP users asking what happened to the Kodak Imaging for Windows application. Upon closer inspection you may have discovered that some of the Windows XP systems have Imaging and others don’t. The reason for the discrepancy is that when you upgrade an existing Windows 2000 installation to Windows XP, Setup leaves Imaging on the system. But if you have a brand new Windows XP installation, Imaging is nowhere to be found.

Unfortunately, Microsoft didn’t relicense the Imaging application from Kodak for inclusion with Windows XP. It instead replaced the functions that Imaging provided with the Windows Picture And Fax Viewer and the Scanner And Camera Wizard. While these features, along with others in the Windows XP operating system, will provide most of what you need, there are some operations, such as scanning multiple images into one document or applying a rubber stamp annotation, that are no longer available.

If you have users who need and are accustomed to using the Imaging for Windows application, there’s a way to extract Imaging’s files from a Windows 2000 Professional CD and then install Imaging in Windows XP.

Download a little batch file from my Shared box name as Kodak_XP.zip that you can run to perform the entire operation.



  1. This is by far the easiest application to install Kodak Imaging. Thanks for making this available!

  2. I’m pretty sure I used this to install Kodak Imaging last December. I needed to reinstall and now I’m having trouble. Will you please confirm that this still works?

  3. The error states “imgadmin.ocx is not an executable file and no registration helper is registered for this file type.” The error comes up for every .ocx file that the batch file tries to register.

  6. Can you believe we still need this stuff? Thanks for the batch file to make it easy to install. I knew if I googled it I would find a friendly guru who had already put it all together.
