Here is the lexmark printer x73 driver 1.0.17.2

http://printers.free-driver-download.com/Lexmark/12559/Lexmark-Printer-X73-Driver-1.0.17.2-WinXP.html

first go to control panel > system > device manager and find the printer device. double click it then uninstall whatever device is being used. then run the new driver in the download.
you can download and unpack the downloaded file, and then go back to the control panel and let the device manager 'find' the driver, or you can install it manually. (the downloaded driver may come in an .exe form which should install from there)

good luck
chris

chances is it is not compatible with Windows 10! If you have another computer running windows xp or vista hook the label writer to it, if it works then compatibility with with windows 10 is the problem, unless they have an software update for your printer, it wont work.

I have installed Adobe Acrobat 7 on my laptop that runs on Win 7 platform. However, the installation of Acrobat flashed a warning message that Adobe Acrobat 7 was unable to create a new item: Adobe PDF...

Good Afternoon -
Direct from Adobe, they state that versions 9 and above are compatible with Windows 7, and any versions 8 or prior are not supported and updates to make compatible will not be released. There are two solutions, one that may work and one that will definitely work. The first is to try to install the program under Windows XP compatibilty, natively on Windows 7. To do this, find the executable for installation, right click and select properties. On the comptability tab, click the check box that says: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows XP (Service Pack #) from the drop down, and proceed to install, running the installer as Administrator. The other guaranteed way is if you have Windows 7 , any version other than starter, you can enable Windows XP Mode which creates a virtual PC of XP on your machine and integrates the program references into Windows 7. Details on this can be found:

Is the Dell A940 compatible with imac computers?

Hello there!

As i know dell printers dont offer you ability to use them with mac computers, but i know that you could use your printer as a server from some windows os pc, and connect it with your imac computer, if you are able to do that here you go, detail instruction will be provided for you in next text lines.

This document gives a detailed explanation of how to set up an HP DeskJet 722C printer that is attached to a Windows XP computer so that the printer can be used by a Mac OS X computer on a local area network (LAN). If your printer is slightly different, or you have a different version of Windows, or you're using a different Unix than Mac OS X, you'll have to adapt these instructions with your own creativity.
Be aware that these procedures may not be necessary at all if the printer you have has Mac drivers, and other Microsoft incantations are working properly. You may be able to get off easy, but then, you probably wouldn't be searching the Internet looking for these instructions. Your mileage may vary.
Thanks to the detailed directions at http://pnm2ppa.sourceforge.net/PPA_networking/PPA_networking-4.html which gave me most of the information I needed to make these detailed instructions.
The process falls into these five general steps:
  1. On Windows: Make sure you have a working printer set up on your Windows XP computer (this is not covered here).
  2. On Windows: Install the software needed to emulate a Postscript printer and redirect printing ports
  3. On Windows: Set up an emulated Postscript printer on Windows XP that will actually print to the (probably non-Postscript) printer set up in step one.
  4. On Windows: Set up Unix LPR Printer Services on Windows XP that will point to the emulated Postscript printer in step three that in turn points to the real printer in step one.
  5. On Mac OS X: Set up an LPR over IP printer in Mac OS X pointing to your Windows XP computer.
What follows are some email messages that people have sent me about some problem they overcame that I did not encounter. I'm sorry I cannot "boil down" their advice, because I no longer have a PC, but here is what they have to say.

Trying to install HP Deskjet 712c on computer with windows xp

You shouldn't need any software to print to this printer under XP, just let XP find the best or closest match to your printer and install it. It might be a Deskjet 700 or something but it'll work as a printer. The old software was probably for Windows 98.
