    I have vista. I tried installing with the disk but a message came up saying there is a newer version installed and the installation failed.

    G'Day, I finally got this working by doing a manual install and clearing the driver box before starting the installation. The page you recommended to me was a buy me, buy me page. I did not want to buy another program as I paid for driver updater pro and can not get it back since the reinstall. maybe you can tell me how to do this?

Hi,

The error that you have received is due to system conflict.

Make sure you have the updated drivers for Vista and you have uninstalled the previous one...

Follow the steps and let me know the result :-

1. Uninstall the drivers you have in our system for Mp 160 printer.

2. Restart the Desktop/Windows.

3. Install the Drivers again.

Download the driver from the below mentioned link :-

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/CANON/Canon-PIXMA-MP160-MP-Drivers-Vista32-110.shtml

Once done, run the test page and let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Arthur,

When you installed the printer, did you use the cd that came with the printer?

What operating system are you using?

Hp deskjet 5100 wia driver


I don't know why your scanner is not working
This printer is supported by Windows 7. Therefore, if you are using Windows 7, you might try rolling back the driver, or updating it, or uninstalling it and letting it re-install next time you connect it/reboot the computer. All these things are done from the hardware device manager > printers in the OS
As WIA is contained within Windows, rather than an additional driver from HP, the steps above should resolve any issues that are due to a corrupt driver.
If you are using a Mac read this
http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Mac-Printing-and-Scanning/Officejet-5100-won-t-scan-to-Mac/td-p/1967991
This may not be why the scanner is not working though.

Hardware installation


Hello,

I did a web search and ended on a forum where everyone was complaining that they could not get drivers.

But one person (user name Arthur) said that the problem is solved by printing from a virtual machine that runs on top of Linux (for instance Virtual Box). Arthur claims that the printer worked through USB as well as WIFI. Sounds Neat.

You might try that solution.

Hope it helps.

Menu letters in tool button


The letters refer to the following:

A = Prints the nozzle check pattern
H = Cleans the fine cartridge
Y = Fine cartridge deep cleaning
P = prints head alignment sheet
L = prints the fine cartridge alignment sheet
U = Scans and then aligns the sheet you printed under the L option

All in the user manual in Chapter 9. Download a copy here:

Cannot load "arthur" with widows vista home premium stops installing


Hello... Please go thru this. Souce:http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=573497
I may have a work around
It is a way to give admin privs to the msi file
First, create a file called Arthur.bat
- Open a folder, say C:\temp
- Right-click and select new, Text Document
- name it Arthur.bat
Next, edit the file
- right click the file and select edit
- put this in the editor ... msiexec /a d:\Arthur.msi
- save and exit
Then, right-click the file and select "Run as administrator"

Worked for me.

There is another msi file (ISScript11.msi) on the CD which I didn't run which may be needed ? But, I managed to play through the tutorial/start so ... we w ill see.

So, it is a permissions thing. Hopefully this will get passed on to the developers and they can resolve it tout-de-suite

SCANNER SAYING NO USER ID


This means that you have not set up any users in the address book in the printer.

Copy is simple, it will scan the document and print out a copy of the scanned image.

Scan however, is trying to make and store an image file of the scan, but it needs to know WHERE you want to scan it to. The printer does not know where to send the stored image unless you create a storage location for it. This is done with the address book that is stored on the printer.

The material below is how to set up the scanner settings of the printer.

Printer Settings Utility Using the Printer Settings Utility window, you can set up the fax system data options, and create and edit Phonebook entries from your computer. You can also configure the destination launches when you access Scan and then PC.
When you install the Dell software, the Printer Settings Utility is automatically installed.
For information about installing the software, see "Installing Software in Windows".
To open the Printer Settings Utility:
  1. Click Start software25.jpg Programs software25.jpg DELL software25.jpg DELL Printers software25.jpg DELL Laser MFP 1815 software25.jpg Printer Settings Utility.
The Printer Settings Utility window opens.

  1. The Printer Settings Utility window provides several features; Directory (Phone Book, Address Book), Fax Setting (Fax Cover Sheet), and Scan (Destination, Resolution, Scan Color, Show Preview).
The Scan Section The Destination Section To configure the operator panel display scan destination list that appears when you access Scan and then PC, click Destination and the Setting button. Using the destination list, you can select a software program that an image can be scanned to.
