Question about Alps MD 1000 Thermal Printer
I have an MD-1000, and I've been trying to install the XP driver from the alps yahoo group. It installs but before the window finishes I get an error saying saying "the service cannot be installed due to an unknown error." I have another copy of the same driver that came with my printer and I get the same error (hence why I went to get the yahoo groups one.) What could be causing this, is there a fix?
Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) causes the printer to not work - Go to control panel and select system to see which version of Windows you are on. I chose the lazy way out by unistalling SP3 via the control panel programs feature and then adding the printer back in. This is a known issue http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951822 with a Microsoft fix available for the problem. Also check this site out for another way it was fixed http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itproxpsp/thread/e308274c-2990-42c0-a98b-9d97eb24981d If you are using Windows Vista, the only way I have been able to get it to work is with a 32bit system (not 64bit) networking into a shared printer connected to an XP computer.

If you read the instructions found at the Alps YahhoGroup, you will find the solution.

I am wondering if you have uninstalled all previous drivers .. I know in some instances the Alps Yahoo Groups suggest you un-install all drivers, so the program looks at it as a brand new install driver.
