I have a Canon printer but no installation disc so I downloaded the software from the Canon site and unzipped it to a file I specified. The printer is recognised when I connect it (USB) but I get a message that the software cannot be found, even when I type in the file location.

Uninstall printer, connect printer to PC, reboot, go to control panel select "printer and other hardware" select "add a printer" then use drivers when requested...

But the printer isn't and won't install.

Have you used the "add a printer" from control panel...

Thanks Santos7. I found the setup file in the printer folder and now the printer is installed.
