Re: erorr in installing the printer

Please run an updated antivirus, and anti-malware software on your PC.. I think theres a virus lurking in your computer, after that try installing the printer driver again.
I hope this may help..

I have a Dell 944 all-in-one printer and just got a new Toshiba laptop. The new laptop uses Windows 7, which is not supported by the printer. Is there an update to the drivers & utilities to make...

Did you try the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode. Drivers and instructions can be found at...

Let me know what happens.

If using Windows 7, use the Vista drivers in the compatibility mode.

Right click on the setup.exe file, left click properties, left click compatibility. Change the compatibility to Vista(Try Vista SP2). Then install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect the printer(powered on)
***To install drivers, sometimes the file unzips and does nothing. You have to look for the setup.exe file, right click on it, then left click run as administrator***

As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.

How to install driver "canon ip 1100"

The driver is a set of "directions" which gives the hardware (in this case your printer) directions on what to do and when.
You can do it one of three ways.
  1. Plug the printer into your computer and when new hardware is recognized by your computer, depending on the operating system, it will install the drivers stored in a Windows folder currently on your computer.
  2. Plug the printer into your computer and when new hardware is recognized by your computer it will prompt you with a new window to install the drivers and then either direct the computer to find the drivers on your computer (if you have them in a file from a download) or on the Install CD and proceed to install them.
  3. Insert install CD in the CD/DVD ROM and if it doesn't open on its own, click on MY COMPUTER then CD/DVD Drive (probably D or E drive) and click on install.
  4. Reboot computer and all should be fine
I hope this helps and good luck!

I am trying to load on D;/setupexe but it will not install.

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.
