Can't find hot folders in port tab of printer property page

Hi,there,
I was trying to setup a printer's port to a hot folder so the file and be dropped into it and be picked up by other apps. This is XP sp3. But I can't find it only STANDARD TCP/IP AND LOCAL are available. Other computers have this port type. Should I install this type of port from WinXP disk?

Thanks a lot.

There's no such thing in plain Windows XP as a 'hotfolder port'. There's a special "FILE:" port which redirects the output to a file (and asks for the filename every time).
If your other machines have such port, it means it has been created together with an installation of some specific printer (or virtual printer) driver. You must establish what the driver is and install it on your machine as well.

How to get your Dell 964 AIO printer to work correctly in Windows 7


Read through all the steps and get a good understanding of process before starting.

Step 1:
Perform manual Un-installation of OLD printer drivers Click Start > Devices And Printers, right-click on the Dell AIO 964 printer icon, and click on Remove This Device.

Step 2: Unplug the USB cable from the computer.

Step 3: Download the ZIP file R166225.ZIP from the Dell website here:

http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R166225&formatcnt=2&libid=0&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=224455

Step 4:
Extract all the files from R166225.ZIP intoa separate folder by themselves. Remember the location of the folder for later use. It would be best to create a new folder and extract the files to that folder to make it easier.

Step 5: Navigate to the directory you extracted the files to, locate SETUP.EXE, and run it. This will run the Dell Clean-Up Utility, which removes old printer drivers/files from your system.You may need to navigate to a sub-folder named "CleanUp_Utility" under the folder that you just created in order to run SETUP.EXE.

Step 6: Reboot the computer when prompted.

Step 7: Download the self-extracting file R146813.EXE here:

http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R146813&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=195111

Step 8:
Navigate to the file R146813.EXE, right-click the file name, click Properties, click the Compatibility Tab, and check off the following check boxes: Runthis program in compatibility mode for: (then select Windows VistaService Pack 2), and Run this program as an administrator.

Step 9:
Right-click SETUP.EXE, click Run as Administrator, and run SETUP.EXE.You might be able to get away with just running the executable withoutthis step, but I included it for redundancy and for safety's sake.

Step 10: Re-connect the USB cable to your computer when prompted by the Setup Utility. A small warning: when I did this step, Windows detected my printer and installed its own native drivers forthe printer, and a dialog box popped up attempting to print analignment page. I ignored this dialog box entirely. If this happens,you will be prompted by the Setup Utility to update the driver, which is what you want to do. Continue to run the Setup Utility as normal.

Step 11: Reboot the computer again.

Step 12:
After starting up Windows 7 and logging in, Click Start > Devices and Printers, double-click the printer icon. Click Customize your Printer, then the Ports Tab. Check off "Enable bidirectional support."

Step 13:
Verify that the printer is communicating with the operating system by printing a test page. You can go back to Customize your Printer and click Print Test Page.

Step 14:
If it still doesn't work try and reboot and try printing test page again.


Thank you and enjoy the tip.

Canon laser shot lbp 1120 drivers wont work on windows 7


Hi there,

I just recently fixed the problem for my LBP-1120, so I thought I'd share to make life a little eaier (in case you are still experiencing the same problem).

Step 1: Uninstall any previous attempts to give you a clean slate to work with.

Step 2: Go to http://driverscollection.com/?H=LBP-1120&By=Canon
You want to download the CAPT Driver R1.10 V1.10
(It's 1.61Mb)
Direct Link: http://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=4185122914590a75abbdee86fed

Add the little cypher code, and click download.

Step 3: Run the file, it will extract to the same folder.

Step 4: Simply Start> Devices & Printers > Add Printer
Add Local Printer (I'm assuming USB001)
Have disk > Browse (Go to folder)

Alternatively, if your current Printer list shows "Canon Capt Printer" already, right click, go to Properties and try Updating the driver by using the folder/files you downloaded.

That should work now. Happy Printing! :-)

you will need to go into your printers folder find the ip address of the device ensure it doesnt have any jobs in que, uncheck the ip address and change to LPT1 then go into file at the top of your printer folder server properties Ports, find the ip address of the printer and delete it then hit the drives tab at the top of the server properties page and delete the driver for the printer also, this should resolve your issues.

Printing Backwards like a mirror image


You need to change the printer properties.

You can do this a few ways:

  • Click File , Print , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print , Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click Print , Properties , then click Printer Assistant .
  • Click the Taskbar Printer icon.
  • Right-click the applicable 3740 icon in the Printers folder, then click the Printer Preferences button.


Click on the "Basics" tab.

The 3rd option under "orientation" will say "mirror image".

Make sure this is un-checked.
