Canon BJ-200e LPT1 port problem on Win95
Posted on 1998-02-04
I have a black and white BJ-200E canon printer that I got couple of years back with win 3.1 drivers. Now I have a win95 toshiba laptop that I want to use it with. I have downloaded latest canon drivers and installed it on my pc.
However, I keep getting
'cannot access port LPT1: port might already be in use by another program, try quitting other programs and try again'.
There is no other printer using that device. There are no IRQ conflicts. Any help would be appreciated.
I should add that when I connect the printer to LPT1 and boot the pc, the error light comes on on the printer as the laptop boots up.
