Try installing the drivers in compatibility mode (vista drivers preferably from the site)
To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista,xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.
Disconnect your printer firstly and reboot- start installing the drivers with the compatibility settings - wait till the software instructs you when to connect the printer - sometimes this is necessary - or find install instructions at the zebra site by going to support and type in or select your printer model from a list.
Why install in compatibility mode - the drivers arent wriiten for Windows 7 and this will fix the OS mismatch.

You could try here

This is a discontinued product so future drivers might be unlikely.

SOURCE: P520i vista drivers

Did you try installing the XP drivers in Vista using the Vista compatibility mode?

Another option to use XP drivers in Vista involves changing the group policies.

Hope one of them works for you!

Windows 8 computer will not recognize the printer.


Unless a driver is installed and the driver required is not integral to the windows 8 library of drivers , the printer will not work. It must have the appropriate driver to function. It may be that the printer is a few years old and perfectly functioning but without the driver it is just a paperweight. Tome manufacturers do not update drivers wben anew operating system is released because they want the public to shell out for more hardware. Companies such as HP avoid this usually and provide great support for their equopment. Certain Japanese manucacturers are not so good.
I believe your printer may be unsupported by windows 8.
What is make and model please?

Hi I am printing barcode labels on a Zebra Tlp2844-Z. I can print resident barcodes in passthrough mode using the old Zebra driver (1.0.0.43) but the barcode does not print using the ZDesigner driver...


Have you tried creating the barcode / label using the ZDesigner software? It is available free on their website and I'm sure you'll find it easy to use. Hope this helps!

After upgrading to window 7, 2 printers, Lexmark z22 & hp deskjet 1120c will not allow print request out of the quew even tho the printers are listed as compatible by window 7


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

From Canon support: (select your operating system)

If this is a recent operating system upgrade to Windows 7, it might be advisable to uninstall your printer driver before re-installing with the downloaded software.

We are transferring our data files to a new pc and will like to know whether we need to install a software to work with our TLP2742. If so, is there an online downloadable software?


You can download the correct driver for this printer for all Windows Operating Systems from the following Zebra Support link

http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/drivers_downloads/drivers/results.html?productType=7

Select the Zebra Universal Driver v5.5.7.25 as the printer driver. This covers around 50 different models but includes the TLP2742.

You can also download the designer and setup software as they should also work with the TLP2742

Normally this printer s meant to print labels.
To have them work as line printers there is only one thing to do. Start the printer while pressing on the button. When it starts feedingthe paper release the button. After printing the configuration it will act as a line printer. But the best way to use it as a receipt printer is to create a program which will send the information to the printer through a windows driver if your software can do that
