  1. Help with installing a printer driver


    Hi all, trying to find help installing printer/fax/scanner drivers for the Canon MF743cdw. Unfortunately Canon wasn't able to resolve the issue and it seems to be some kind of permissions or access issue. When I spoke to them, they suggested that Windows was preventing the installation of the Canon Port Monitor. Is there some way that Windows may be blocking this? I've tried turning off Windows Defender protections but it doesn't seem to have made a difference. Could it be an issue with our wifi network? We are using a mesh network, could that be causing problems? Thank you!

    :)

  4. Help with installing a printer driver

    error 0X800f0214 when installing printer driver - Microsoft Community

    Hi Plamen,

    It could be the driver is not installed properly or has got corrupted. We would like to ask for additional information. Please provide the following:

    • Which build of Windows 10 are you using? To know about it, hit
      Start, type Winver and then press
      Enter. You could also press Windows Key + R, type
      Winver into the
      Run dialog and press Enter.
    • Aside from installing the printer device, were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Can you tell us what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Furthermore, we suggest that you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver and see if the issue persists. We highly suggest to check the website of the manufacturer of the said printer to know the compatible driver for your current
    Windows 10 build.

    As a reference, we also suggest that you check this article to troubleshoot printer problems for Windows 10.

    Looking forward to the requested information and the results of the recommended troubleshooting steps.
