I was installing a printer driver that was not compatible with Windows 7. I have a message that says product cannot be recognised. I have un installed the printer in control panel but I cannot get a screen to go off the desk top that came up when downloading started. I now want to get rid of it but do not know how. I am clicking on the cross but the picture will not go that shows I am on stage 2 of downloading the printer.
See this Link which says - If your product is not listed and it was released prior to 2009, where available please download and install the Windows Vista driver from the Epson website. You could try searching for a Vista driver which may work.
If you install the Printer as adminstrator it should work without problems.
1 Completley remove all previous versions of epson including from hard drive.
2 find the correct printer driver right click and select run as adminstrator
You may get a prompt telling you that it does not work with Win 7 however carry on with installation. dont forget do not turn the printer on untill prompted
Ive never found a problem installing this was either with Win 7 Or with Win 8
