Hello,

I have an Epson DX7450 that I urgently need to use. However I can't get the driver for the printer too install. I've tried using the disc, and downloading the driver.

When trying to install via w7's Update Driver, I get the error "One of the installers for this device cannot perform the installation at this time" when I try too use the disc, and "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element". When using the disc or the downloaded driver I get "The printer driver package cannot be installed".

Any help is appreciated.

Yup, been through that. Tried redownloading the driver incase of a corrupt file etc etc. No joy.

That's great Ventrixius and I confess that I never thought of that! Well done!
