    I can try to help you.

    I am assuming you have the install cd in the drive.
    Are you trying to run the program from the cd or are you typing in that install command from Start/Run?

I'm presuming this is an optical disk (CD or DVD) containing (printer?) software you wish to install ... right?

If so, are you trying to launch the "setup.exe" file from a cmd/Command Prompt shell by typing it in, then "enter"? If so, the most glaring problem is typographical error ... "D;/setupexe" > should be "D:setup.exe"

If not the above, does any installer dialog (i.e., window) display soon after inserting the disk into the drive? If the disk does indeed contain a software installation package with a "setup.exe" file, then this likely indicates "autoplay" is deactivated for that particular drive. If this is the case, it can be corrected by right-clicking the subject drive icon and modifying the settings on the "Autoplay" tab. Or alternatively accomplshed using "TweakUI". It's available at However, get this handy and dandy Microsft utility regardless of this situation if you don't already have it.

This leaves the last scenario: Are you maually trying to launch the file by clicking on it? If so, what error dialog(s) are you encountering and what EXACTLY does it say?

TIP: A very rudimentary way to test the readability of a CD/DVD disk is to insert it into a drive, then launch "Command Prompt" and type in "DIR /S DRIVE_LETTER:" (without quotes), then hit enter. EXAMPLE: DIR /S D:
If it successfully displays every file on the disk (implies it's read), it's a fair indication of A-OK readable status.

That's the best shot in the dark I can make with the limited amount of info provided in the question. Please respond with additional info/feedback in order to help zero in on defining the problem.

I can't get the down load for the Lexmark x1240 to work. I have down loaded it but when I try to get the computer to recognize the printer, it doesn't or it doesn't let it connect

Did the drivers install completely?

If so, try plugging the printer USB cable in a different USB socket, one that you did not plug the printer into before. If you don't have a "fresh" free USB socket, you can always swap plugs with the mouse for example.
Te computer should discover your printer and use the already installed driver.

If the driver did not install at all, try installing it again with the printer unplugged from USB, and plug it in to a "fresh" USB socket (as described above) only when asked to by the installer software.

When I down load the software it says there is another version already running.I don't know what to do

The program won't install if the version your using is the most current one.  If you really want to load your software, then uninstall whatever you got now, restart your computer, and then load your disc and try installing again.

Cannot install software

Did you connect the scanner to your computer before loading the CD? There is an updated driver available from Canon that your operating system may have found and already installed. Try loading your CD again and this time select "Custom Install" instead of "Easy Install." After selecting Custom Install, the next screen will show all of the programs that will be installed. De-select the ScanGear box so that this software doesn't try to install as it is the updated one that is already on your computer most likely. Click install and the install should proceed this time.

Trying to install from disc. It asked for domain. I don't even know what that is .

Try reinstalling the software and make sure all the cables are connected correctly. More detailed information about what it is doing and what it is not would be helpful. The drivers may not have loaded from the install disc so try uninstalling and reinstalling the software.
