    If you are tyring to install old software on a newer OS like XP you need to get the latest software from the Mfg.'s site.

    Hi, thanks for your reply!

    would it be the software as it is a brand new printer? Also i have downloaded service pack 2 would this have caused a message like this or could it be a virus??

    thank you for your help

    What is the printer - What is your OS?

    yes, there is a space after expand....
    if your cd drive is d, simply copy paste this:
    expand d:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
