Problem Installing Printer Driver for Canon MP460


I successfully installed the software for my Canon MP460 MFD & started using it. Then a week or so later I tried to print something, & found the printer name & icon greyed out. It said printer driver not installed. Tried to reinstall from disk & got runtime error (PROGRAM E:DRIVERX86DRVSETUPSETUP.EXE - abnormal program termination). Same from website download. The disk doesn't give an uninstall option - when I try to remove the program, I get a longer runtime error (FAD5-9546-44f3....). Nothing I try seems to make any difference.

What Had I Done (Knowingly) Since First Installing it?
Downloaded Windows Defender & numerous Windows Updates (I had previously not had them, going back ages, despite Automatic Update being set). A recent Update included IE7.

What Have I Tried?
Reinstalling & Unistalling as above, having disabled Defender, Noron Antivirus & Windows Firewall. Also System Restore back to pre-IE7, Defender & Updates, & pre-original installation.

Aaaaarrrgghhh! Can anyone tell me what I've done &/or how to fix it? Microsoft & Canon support worse than useless.

    Thanks, ser71

    Well, I've got NOD32 now, which looks good, & downloaded & run the Canon driver, but when I go to the printer it STILL says it's not installed. Clearly something still getting in the way, or something fundamental I'm missing.

    No, XP Home.

    I have replaced with a new USB 2.0 cable, & it still says the printer driver is not installed.

Try removing the installation of your printer then install it back again. If you do not have the drivers, you can find them on Canon's site.

I have a PIXMA MP460 Cannon Printer. The printer works and I can also copy but I can not scan documents to my PC. Any suggestions?

Try re-installing it again. You may have not installed the application software for scanning if you did a Custom Install.

Printer driver

Sometimes Printer drivers are NATIVE to the XP or Visa operating system. Try hooking it up and installing the software.
t may just self install.
If not, then.
Go to Control Panel, Add Hardware Wizard and find Printers, Canon and ip1700.
