    able to install printer driver, but unable to install printer into windows


    I am using an 11 year old Toshiba Laptop that was originally running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64. It ran win10 previously in 2016, but the system had an HDD issue that resulted in me having to doing a factory restore. I upgraded the system once again because I needed to use my laptop once again while my current system is undergoing a second round of warranty repairs with MSI. Somehow during the upgrade from windows 7, the Epson drivers and utilities got really badly hammered. some of the utilities would not uninstall, and the driver uninstall utility would balk when i tried to uninstall th

    Virtual Pdf Printer Driver Won't install and Fixes won't work

    You might be able, if needed, to get the old version, here at oldapps web site (disclaimer: I do not vouch for this site... check any and downloads with your fav malware/antivirus apps): Old Version of PrimoPDF for Windows XP

    PrimoPDF forums are down it seems... however, I found this at PCReview forums, quote from "Unable to Install "Software" Printers":

    Same solution on MSDN thread, "cannot install printer driver in XP Embedded":

    Printer wont install

    So my dad got a new printer for Christmas. Its a Kodak EASYSHARE all-in-one 5500 series printer.

    I go to install the drivers leaving the printer unplugged from the computer (power cord is plugged in) and the instructions state to plug in the USB device when prompted. Okay...I wait until prompted and plug it in. It still sits there at the screen telling me to insert the USB cable to the back of the printer. I have tried it with the printer on and with it off. I have even tried using drivers off Kodak's website.

    Not really sure what to do. Vista doesnt even try to install a driver for it when i plug it into the motherboard. Ive never had this problem with a printer before.

    Not sure if i put this in the right section or not so if it isnt, mods feel free to move it. However it will be a networked printer. *Stick Out Tongue able to install printer driver, but unable to install printer into windows :p

    Any ideas guys?
