Can't install printer drivers for Vista

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 and am trying to install the drivers for Vista from Epson Support but when I click Setup on the Winzip self extractor, an error message appears saying 'DAT file is not exist!!'
Can anyone help?

    Thank you. It now seems to have installed the printer but at the printer utilities setup it had a problem recognising the printer and I had to manually select the port for configuration. When I print a test page nothing happens. There seems to be no communication between the printer and my laptop. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

After spending a long time on the phone with Epson technical support -- you need to right click on the Setup icon, and tell it to run as administrator. Then the driver installs fine. Go figure.

Pictures wont print correctly with vista

Are you using the correct drivers for Vista or just the disc you used before?

Download the latest Vista drivers from here (32bit)

If you have Vista 64 bit just change the system in the drop down menu.

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but

Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.
