Did your printer come with an installation CD, did you try using it?

wowexec.exe is the application required to run old 16-bit (Win 3.1x) programs in Windows NT/2k/XP.
It should be in the "C:\WinNT\System32" dir for WinXP Pro Ed.
or the "C:\Windows\System32" dir for WinXP Home Ed.

How old is this printer?
What is the make/model
Are you sure you're using the correct driver setup?
Are they (ie. the printer & drivers) WinXP compatible?

I've attached my WinXP version of wowexec.exe below,
but exe or zip aren't valid attachment extensions on this forum,
so I needed to rename the file to wowexec.exe.txt
Right click the attachment, select Save Target As
Then just remove the .txt from the end.
