The printer[as all nowadays is a USB device herefore it must be set up as such. -[LPT1 is redundant now]
Uninstall the set up .
Come off line and disable the Antivirus protection
Disconnect the printer.
Run the software disc
Connect the printer only when asked.
Should be plain sailing from there on.
Printer Software and particularly Epson is very fussy- it must be installed exactly to the instruction.
