    Hi,

    I have downloaded the printer driver for my Lexmark Z42 printer from the Lexmark website, it's an .exe file which downloads as a .zip file, and when I unzip it, there are 46 files without any extension- how do I install the driver? I had the same problem before with Hp drivers as well- Is there a specific way in which I have to install these drivers? I use XP.

    Thanks.

    Can you give a link to that driver?

    You will likely have XP set to "hide known file types" so the files are likely to all have valid file types.

    One file will probably be a setup.exe or an install.exe file, which will utilise the others when it installs the drivers.

    Just tried it.

    All files have valid extensions and there is a "winsetup.exe"
    Many are folders, named for each language that is supported.
