WHen I try and install two shared epson printers on a network to one of the computers on the network, I recieve this error "printer driver setup error. cannot create a file when the file already exists." I deleted all the epson drivers for the model printers that i am trying to install and still getting the same error. The two HP printers had no problem. Any ideas?

    Do you have full administrator priviliges on the PC? If you know the name of the offending file, try moving or renaming it, to see if the driver will then install.
