Lexmark X5470 installation on windows 98

I wonder if you can help me with a problem I have with windows 98.
I have just bought a new all in one printer a Lexmark X5470 after being very careful to make sure that it was listed as being able to work with my version of windows, It states on the box it does and also in the manual it does but when you try to install the disc it says it will not operate on my version of windows. I’ve contacted Lexmark and they say that windows has taken away the licence for windows 98 drivers and are not helpful at all. I have since googled this at it has been a problem with hundreds of people, however I found a download for the installation files and copied them to a disc. The problem is when I try to install the file I keep getting the message ‘Program not found. Windows cannot find program.exe. This program is needed for opening files type ‘EXE_File’. I have searched everywhere for this can you help?
If it is not a simple matter then obviously I will bring the computer and printer to you a pay for it accordingly.
Any help would be appreciated.

I'm looking for a printer driver for X5470 for Windows Vista I made a download, but the printer is not installed

Try to uninstall the existing driver first before installing a new driver. You may refer to this article on How to Uninstall Lexmark Printers. Reboot pc when prompted. When computer's ready, check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit by going to the Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type. Download the driver using the link below:

Follow the instructions on the software. Hope this helps.

Have a new computer with windows 7 - the lexmark X5470 printer I have was hooked to my old computer with CD Windows 98 Op - how do I reprogram to new computer

There is no specific software required for the printer to work in Windows 7. When you plug it in Windows should find the driver in it's own driver data base and the printer should function. Below is a link to a Microsoft video explaining how to manually add the printer.

Alternately you can download and install the Vista drivers as recommend by Lexmark for Windows 7 use.

Lexmark x5340 printer "can't communicate with computer." All hardware okay. Just bought new USB cord since printers don't come with them anymore. Have older computer 2001 Gateway, however was wondering if...

I had a brand new usb cord that didn't work but cost a lot of money. I went to wal-mart and bought a usb cord for like $6 that had a printer icon on the package and hooked that up and the message disappeared. I don't know if that helps but hope it does.
