If anyone successfully setup Network Scanning on WC7225 or comparable MFP with Windows 8.1, can you please share your instructions? I have a proposed WC7225, customer will not accept proposal until we guarantee it will work. Is WC7225 SMB compatible with Windows 8.1 SMB? Do I need patches or update for Microsoft Windows 8.1?
According to the Compatibility Matrix there is support for win 8.1.
Updated drivers for printing are also available on the site.
Have a look at THIS and see if that helps.

As far as I know you cannot scan using SMB from a WC7225, WC78xx or any prior Xerox MFP to Windows 8, 8.1 or Windows server 2012.
The only way to succeed is using FTP.
Why would'nt you?
We had a wc7225 at work, and new win 8-8.1 computers, worked the same as if you would use win 7.
You might need to enable the correct SMB version, but thats about it.
I was sure that you would have made reference to that Microsoft KB article.
Doing so you force Windows 8/8.1 and Windows Server 2012 to work in SMB1 mode.
"Note When you enable or disable SMBv2 in Windows 8 or in Windows Server 2012, SMBv3 is also enabled or disabled. This behavior occurs because these protocols share the same stack."
That is a bad idea, especially if the computer acting as the file repository is Windows Server 2012.
I was talking about enabling SMB, not disabling SMBv2 and SMBv3.
You might not need to, but I said it because I've bumped into this before.
Usually it's just the sharing settings etc.
I do believe this printer does use SMBv1?
