How can i install a EPSON EPL 5500W in windows XP
Posted on 2006-05-08
I have wirtten to Epson, and they inform me that Microsoft have withdrawn support for the Windows Printing System which, apparantly includes support for the EPSON EPL 5500W.
When i connect the printer to XP it recognises the unit as a EPSON EPL 5500W. I was wondering is there any way i can force windows to install workable drivers for this printer.
The only drivers i have found tell me that "Drivers for Windows NT will soon be released" when i attempt to install them.
Is there a place i can get 'old drivers' from ?? or is there a way i can get windows XP to circumvent the dialog box and xontinue with the installation ??
I have installed windows XP with NTFS on this occasion. The install rom didn't have a FAT32 option.
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
