How to get Epson R300 stylus monitor to work in Vista

Have new HP Pavilion desktop computer with Vista Home Premium. My Epson Photo Stylus R300 prints, but the stylus monitor is grayed out and the progress monitor doesn't work. No way to see ink levels or control printing once it starts. No apparent updated drivers from Epson. Any ideas short of having to buy a new printer?

I have the same problem with my stylus C88. Epson never did provide Vista drivers so I have never found a way to get the Epson software to work with Vista. The print driver does work so you will be able to print but you'll have to clean the nozzle manually by pushing the button on the printer rather than using the Epson Monitor. Sorry.

I do not know which ink i have to replace!!!!


This link.

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=26322&prodoid=37368458&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows

will lead you to the site to download this driver. Printer Driver v5.5bAs

It says it has the ink monitoring program in it.

Best bet is to uninstall the printer from your computer and reinstall it with this new printer driver.

Epson Stylus Photo R200 and R320 Status monitor in Vista


I was able to install the original XP status monitor from the CD, onto Windows Vista Home Premium.

On the install cd, you need to open the 'STM3' folder under whatever language you are installing, 'English' in my case. There are several .exe files in that folder:

E_S1LAC2.EXE
E_SCHK02.EXE
E_SIINS2.EXE
E_SPSU02.EXE
STMSETUP.EXE
For each of these, right click on the file, and choose 'Properties'. Under the 'Compaitbility' tab, choose 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' - Windows XP (Service Pack 2).

Then run the 'STMSETUP.EXE' file, and it should install properly, and work. Although I cannot guarantee that it will work on your system, or that it will not have any negative effects on your computer.

So far, I have not had any trouble with it.
