Colour Laser Printer on W98se

  David4637 14:59 20 Jun 2010

I have a Samgsung CLP 315 Printer which works brilliantly on XP, but I would like to install the driver on W98SE. The set up disc (setup.exe) will not load and comes up with an error dialog message -
MS Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error
Abnormal Program Termination
Samsung says No support for W98SE.

Any ideas as how I can load this driver?
Thanks David

"Samsung says No support for W98SE" - which basically means there is no driver for Win98 operating system

'98 is the old DOS based O/S
All modern printers come with driver for XP and above [NT based system]
A friend's son bought him a nice new allinone to run on his Millennium O/S machine. an absolute no no
See if anything turns up here or contact Samsung
but I think you will be having to update the computer to run to-days hardware.
Take a look here to see what turns up

Thanks for your replies.
It appears to be the runtime library that wont work. My W98se PC has never received updates from MS, can you give me any other options to get this printer to work on it?
Thanks David

Thanks for your replies.
I may try using the unofficial W98SE update down load 17 MB, which has a runtime update included. Thanks for the suggestion Woodchip - did you have any problems installing this download, and also did the screen display change?
Thanks David

Tried installing the unofficial W98SE update, it started to unpack the files and stopped without any error message, so it looks like I wont be able to run my laser printer using the printer driver for XP and later OS's.
Any other ideas please
Thanks David

Looks like a new printer - or stay with it on XP

What started stopped? it started to unpack the files and stopped
