Force install of printer driver for a Lexmark (Network printer)
Posted on 2004-09-17
I have a Lexmark 3150 installed on a computer in the office here. I can print to it from the station that I am on now (WinXP) However, I cannot install it's drivers on the Win98 machine because everytime I load the setup, it says 'cannot continue installation because no printer is detected' and does not give the option for anything else. Obviously there is no printer connected, because it's over the network. As far as I can tell there is no option to install the driver anyway.
When you install the driver manually, through Windows, it uninstalls the driver and then runs the setup program.
I'm at a bit of a loss. Suggestions?
