The old program may not be compatible with Win 7, so try running in Compatibility Mode.
To start the Program Compatibility Wizard, click Start, click Help and Support, click Find compatible hardware and software for Windows XP,
and then, under See Also in the navigation pane, click Program Compatibility Wizard.

What OS is your computer running? I found the drivers for supported OS versions here: . The direct links are listed below. (All are .zip files so you will need to unzip them.)
Mac .
Win95-98 .
Win NT and Win2K .

If you have a newer Windows OS, you can try the compatibility mode. (The NT driver will likely work in XP. If you have Vista or Win7 32-bit OS, it's possible they will work but maybe not. If you have the 64-bit version, the above files will not work directly.) For executable files in Windows, right click on the .exe file and choose properties. Select the Compatibility tab and check Always run this program in the Compatibility Mode. Select the appropriate older version of Windows. Then click Apply. Close the Properties window. Then right click again on the file and choose Run as Administrator (required for Win7 and Vista).

To check if you have the 64-bit OS, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System (for Win7). In Vista, the steps may be slightly different. If the version name ends with x64, you have a 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

If you have a 64-bit OS, you need a 32-bit OS for a work-around. This can be a true second computer, a dual boot system (2 partitions with different OSes loaded), or a virtual computer with an older version of the OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can install a virtual XP computer for free. Go to and download Virtual PC and the XP mode program. Install them in order. Then install your printer under XP as if it were the only computer running. (Note some computer hardware limits may stop you from using this option.) There are other virtual computer programs (VMWare, Parallels). However for the other virtual computer programs or the dual boot or second computer options, you need a licensed copy of the older OS.

I hope this helps.

Can't get my Epson 880 inkjet to work under Windows7... Epson and Microsoft both say it is compatible. But all I get in Printer and Devices is a USB Printer ICON with an yellow&black exclaimination...

Epson's support ends at Windows 32 bit for your device . Your printer will not run under a 64 bit system .
There is no direct solution to this issue .
If you have a Windows XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of XP on your machine with or via Microsoft's if you are using Ultimate or Professional .
Otherwise , you will have to purchase a new Windows 7 compatible device .

Scanner doesnt have a driver for windows 7

This may help. Depending on your version of windows 7 you may be able to run Windows XP as a virtual machine and still user your scanner under XP Mode. You will have to install the XP driver for your scanner on the XP virtual machine running on your Windows 7 computer.

Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software.

HERE is the direct link to instructions on downloading and using XP Mode on Windows 7

My lexmark printer is not printing from the computer. i have windows 7 on my computer . could it be that it is not compatible with windows 7?

You are correct this printer is not supported under Windows 7. There are workarounds that may work if you want to try them.

First option is the compatibility mode. To try this, download the driver for an older OS version from the Lexmark site, , and right click on the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties. This is more likely to work if you have Windows 7 32-bit. I do not know if this will work for your specific printer.

A method that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

Hi , i cant install canon pc1230d in windows 7 computer. Thanks

There is no driver for your unit under Windows 7
Workaround :
If you are under Win 7 Ultimate or Pro or Enterprise , you can download and install a free virtual version of Win XP from :
This is the ultimate solution to ANY compatibility problem. You just use XP mode to do operate your device then go back to Win 7 in one clic where your modern processing software is.
Under other versions of Windows 7 , you need to have the XP install disc to install a virtual version with a third party software such as WmWare Player from

It looks to me like your printer will not run under XP. The last driver I see is for Windows 2000.

You can check here if you like:

There may be other sources as well.

Before you spend a lot of time looking for the driver, I would suggest you look at the Windows XP hardware compatability list to see if it is a supported device. Find out here:

My Windows Vista SP1 isn't compatible with my Canon PIXMA MP600

You can download the vista drivers here. Under drivers and support then choose your operating system. Make sure to select the correct Vista for your system they have vista and vista 64. You can find which you are running by right clicking on my computer and choosing properties. It is likely normal Vista (Vista 32).

My pc wont let me run software

im sorry dude but you have to switch your PC operating system to Windows Vista. Most of the programs in windows vista is not already compatible in windows XP (especially those lower versions of XP like Service Pack 1). it needs higher specs even Microsoft office 2007 as well is not compatible. If you want, you can go to for the dirvers for windows XP service pack 2.
