How to connect to computer


The unit has a parallel port interface and is supported under Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP . The drivers are available here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/office/laser_facsimile/laser_class_2050_2050p_2060_2060p/laser_class_2060p?selectedName=Specifications#DriversAndSoftware . For the supported OS versions, download the drivers and then run the exe. If it extracts drivers, note the folder in which they are stored. Then launch the Add a Printer Wizard (Printers and Faxes in XP IIRC). If your computer doesn't have a parallel port, parallel to USB adapters do exist.

Neither Vista or Win7 Compatibility Center have the unit listed. The XP driver may work in Vista 32-bit with the compatibility mode on. For Win7 or Vista 64-bit, I'd suggest a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS. For the most setups, you'll need a licensed version of the Windows OS. (Virtual computer software include: Parallels, VMWare and Virtual PC.)

With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft for free, then install them in order. The printer will install normally into the XP virtual computer. However, files from the main computer will need to go onto optical media or an external drive in order to share them with the virtual computer for printing.

I hope this helps.

Hi, all i want to do is install a printer without the software thank you Jay.


You can add a printer though the print wizard built into Windows XP.

1. Open the add printer wizard.

2. Then select local printer... even if it is a network printer

3. If you are not using a USB cable to connect you printer, uncheck the box next to "automatically detect plug and play printer". --->click next. If you are using a USB cable Skip step 4.

4. Your selection on the screen depends on how the printer is connected. In you are using a parallel cable, you will selct the radio button next to "Use the following port" and select LPT1 from the dropdown box. If your printer is a network printer, you select "create a new port" and Standard TCP/IP port from the dropdown box. Then, enter the printers IP Address in the next dialogue box

5. When you come to the install printer software screen click "have disk" and navigate to your machine specific .inf file

6. Enjoy your printer without the annoying bells and whistles

Hi, I have targus usb to 232 serialcable , model


To use a pao88 on Win7 64bit you will need to have Win7 Ultimate, Professional or Enterprise edition AND your computers processor must support hardware virtualisation.
Dowload and install the latest version of XP Mode.
Install the cable in XP mode.
Turn on USB compatibility in XP mode.
Cable will now be accessable in Win7 64bit
I connected and ran a successfull diagnostic test on an old serial modem without issue.

I want to share an HP 7760 on an XP with Win 7


To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.

Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)

On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:

1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer"
2) Create New Port > Local port
3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes

(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)

4) Click <OK>

5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.

I hope this helps!

I HAVE A \LEXMARK X2330 INSTALLED ON AN xp PC. I


I am assuming that the Win7 can "see" the Lexmark on the XP machine but not print.

OK, on the Win7 laptop in question:
Click Control Panel > Printers > Add Local Printer
Create New Port = Local Port
Port name is \\yourXPcomputername\Printername

Now Win7 will install a print driver to work with the shared Lexmark printer.
