Cannot correctly run this installer on this operating system. Usi an installer compatible with your operating system


You need to install the drivers for this printer. You need to use the correct installer for your Windows operating system or Version of Windows. Check the Canon website and download and install the driver for your operating system.

If you are running Windows XP then install the Windows XP drivers for this device on your computer.
If you are running Windows 7 Home Premium, then install the Windows 7 Home Premium drivers for this device, etc... Also be sure to get the right Bit, that being either 32Bit or 64Bit.

Take care!

USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer


In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.


There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

  2. The Add New Hardware Wizard window will appear on the Computer screen.
  3. Click the Next button
  4. Insert the installation CD in to the CD/DVD drive on the Computer.
  5. In the Add New Hardware Wizard window, click to select the CD-ROM drive.
  6. Click the Next button.
  7. In the Finish Setup dialog box, click the Finish button.
  • If the USB driver for the Printer has already been installed, uninstall and then reinstall the driver.
Follow this procedure to reinstall the device driver using the Device Manager utility.

  8. On the menu bar, click Action.
  9. On the Action menu, click Uninstall .
  10. In the Confirm Device Removal window, click the OK button.
  11. Restart the computer.
NOTE: For some devices the operating system will display a System Settings Change window. Click the Yes button to restart the computer. When the computer restarts, the operating system will find the device and install the driver. If the operating system is unable to automatically find the driver, have the installation wizard search the C:WINDOWSI386 folder.
  • Remove and reconnect the printer.

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.


In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.
