Try to log-in in administrator account first. Even though you do have a privilege like an administrator but when it comes to installing software you need to log-in manually in admin account. If this not work, try to download a driver that compatible to windows 7 OS.

Just clink the link below to download the driver for the Pixma MX340 printer:

In order to log in as an administrator, you need to activate the hidden administrator account.

What to do?

You need to open the command prompt.

  1. Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > (right click) Command Prompt > Run as administrator.
  2. Type net user administrator /active:yes and then press Enter

As long as i have my usb cable hooked up to my printer and laptop it works but when i disconnect the cord its offline.what should i do?


It may not be configured to the correct port.The port selected could have been the USB port that's why when you disconnect the USB cable printer goes offline and would not print wireless. Follow the steps below if you are using a WINDOWS computer: For windows XP :
  • Click on start then go to printers and faxes.
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • go down to properties
  • click the ports tab
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
For win vista
  • click on start,in the search box key in printer then hit enter on the keyboard
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • go down to properties
  • click the ports tab
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
For win 7
  • click on start,in the search box put in devices and printers and hit enter
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • click on printer properties
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
Let me know if you need assistance in configuring wireless connection and installation.

Cant download skype, problem with toolbar, error 2738


Take a look in Event Viewer I looked in Event Viewer to find out what MSI-file that generated the error message and found:
Log Name: Application
Source: MsiInstaller
Date: 23.09.2010 21:58:26
Event ID: 1040
... ...
Description:
Beginning a Windows Installer transaction: C:\ProgramData\Skype\{D103C4BA-F905-437A-8049-DB24763BBE36}\SkypeToolbars.msi. Client Process Id: 6564.
2. Running MSIEXEC with logging options I started a "Command Promt" and used the command: "cd C:\ProgramData\Skype\{D103C4BA-F905-437A-8049-DB24763BBE36}" to navigate into the folder containing the MSI-file.
Now using the command: "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" (msiexec options: /i = Install, /lv = Log + Verbose output).
After clicking away the error message I just wrote "log.txt" in my "Command Promt" to open the log-file. Near the bottom of the log-file I found this line:
DEBUG: Error 2738: Could not access VBScript runtime for custom action
3. DEBUG: Error 2738 After a quick search at Google I found out this error indicates that the VBScript engine is not registered on the computer.

The solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 32bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "cd %windir%\system32" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
The solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 64bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "cd %windir%\syswow64" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
4. Try again... Now I tried once more to run "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" (I kept the /lv log.txt option to look for changes if the installer would fail again).
If you still get the same Error than continue to step 5.
5. Cleanup registry first, then re-reg My installation still gave me the same error, so after some more searching and reading on Google I found a solution that explained what I tried before (with the regsvr32.exe) and also an alternative step if that one should fail. The alternative step was to remove the Registry Key pointing to vbscript.dll.
The alternative solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 32bit is then:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f" and hit Enter
- Write "cd %windir%\system32" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
The alternative solution for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 64bit:
- Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories
- Right click "Command Promt" and click on "Run as administrator"
- Write "reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f" and hit Enter
- Write "cd %windir%\ syswow64" and hit Enter
- Write "regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll" and hit Enter
- You should now get a message that says: "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
- Click "OK"
Now using the command "msiexec /i SkypeToolbars.msi /lv log.txt" the installer started perfectly, ran all the way thru and Finished.
Conclusion This message indicates that VBScript engine is not currently registered on the Computer running the installer.
Vbscript.dll must get registered to solve the problem.

I've had a similar problem trying to print to a printer that was not on my laptop but connected to the network through a desktop that was connected to the WiFi router and a cable modem.

If you can see the printer, maybe the driver is already installed.
In my experience, I had to log on as the administrator to print to the printer but I have windows 7 on all 4 of my computers.

I don't have xp anymore.

Maybe xp is the problem.

Dear Friend,
There is one default account in system by name Administrator. Log from that account. (Administrator account is having all rights to perform any process in the computer.)
Or you can do delete all your user account so only administrator account will remain. Then Log off.. and while login you will able to see that account.

Installed usb to db26F converter to use printer


Ok reinstall as Administrator, use "Compatibility mode" for install and the run .exe, also run software as Administrator. too. Often these devices, USB - Serial Ports are NO GOOD for a printer. Either install a real Serial Port. or get a new printer. Windows 7 will NOT help either, it doesn't like older equipment.

Error message : You need to install or run device software for this feature


Make sure you are logged in as Administrator when installing drivers, in order to write files in the system area.
