When using Google Chrome on a Windows 7 machine to perform scanning, you may be prompted to download & install the WCS.  However, this has already been installed and running.


An ERR_SSL_OBSOLETE_VERSION will also be present in the browser console window.


Chrome has deprecated TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 since version 84 as stated here.  Also, Windows 7 by default doesn't have TLS 1.2 by default as stated here.

Therefore, to resolve this issue TLS 1.2 needs to be enabled on the Windows 7 Scan Client.  The easiest way to do this is by using the IIS Crytpo tool found here.  Be sure to reboot the machine after any TLS changes to take effect.
