SOURCE: driver for printer epl 5900l with os vista

Windows Vista and Epson EPL-5900L
My first post and I’m ranting about Vista! I have been recently approached by my mother-in-law (who loves Vista - particularly the Sidebar) as her beloved laser printer wouldn’t work with Vista. Checking Epson’s web site for a Vista driver all I could find was a comment stating that this printer wasn’t supported on Vista. Ah, the joys of Vista! So, I thought why not try to install the latest XP driver on Vista. However, this didn’t work. While the driver seemed to have installed correctly when I tried to print anything all I got were weird error messages (”ebapi not found …”). Mhm, a different approach was needed and here’s how I finally succeeded (I can’t guarantee that this will work for anyone else):

  1. If you have installed the XP driver on Vista - remove it!
  2. Go to http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ and select, “Laser Printers”, “EPL-5900L” and “Windows XP”
  3. Go to “Drivers & Software” and download “Silent Driver (3.3.2fl)” (which is a .zip file)
  4. Extract the zip file to wherever you like on your hard drive
  5. In Vista, go to the Control Panel->Printers, select “Add a printer”.
  6. Then select “Local Printer”, choose “USB” as your local printer port and when asked to select the printer make and model select “Have Disk”
  7. Browse to the directory where you extracted the driver in step 4 and select the EPT0252E.INF file
  8. If Windows then tells you that it already found a driver for this printer go for the Overwrite option
  9. Voilà! All that’s left to do is to print the test page to make sure the printer is working correctly

I need a driver for windows vista for my printer BJC-85


They only support up to windows xp
I found this information on a forum.....

Canon does not write modern Vista drivers for a printer that old. That leaves only one other source and that's the actual Windows Vista os. If it's not included then you cannot use this printer in Vista.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/co...oadDetailAc t

You have to run the Add New Printer wizard to find out if this printer is supported by the Vistamag-glass_10x10.gif os.

I have a dell 946 all in one printer... everything works but the scanner... I just purchased a new computer that has vista and my old computer had xp... worked fine on old puter... any suggestions


You need a new driver from Dell that funtions with Vista. If you have Vista X64 OS then this function may not be available for a while longer as the driver for the scanner is still in development. There is a significant difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

I'm running into networking problems with my Vista X64 OS and a printer on my home network that connects through XP Pro on a desktop computer with a 32-bit OS.

A Windoze Vista 32-bit laptop has no problems with this printer.

Canon ImageClass D861 Need Vista 64 bit drivers


I don't think Vista is supported for this printer and if not doubt that it will be as Microsoft are bringing out a new OS to replace it.

Won't install on Vista OS


Goto the following site and download PCL5 or PCL6 driver.
Uninstall any driver used already. Plugout your printer and then Install the downloaded driver. After finishing the download connect your Printer. You must be able to print on this Printer from Windows Vista
