How do I install my printer in Windows Vista?
Check your printer software CD to see if it already contains Windows Vista drivers. If the CD indicates support for Windows Vista, follow the instructions that came with your printer to install your driver and other software.

If your CD does not indicate support for Windows Vista, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR WINDOWS VISTA COMPUTER because the setup program is not compatible with Windows Vista.

Follow these steps to download and install Vista drivers for your printer:

  1. Turn off your printer and disconnect the USB cable from the printer.

  2. Go to the Drivers & Downloads page.

  3. Download the Printer Driver for your version of Windows Vista: either Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bit. Make a note of the file name and save location so you can easily retrieve it.

  4. Note: To see which version of Windows Vista you have, click  Start > Computer > System Properties. Check the operating system type listed under the System heading.

  5. Open the file you downloaded, and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

  6. When prompted, reconnect the USB cable and turn on your printer.

  7. Note: If you see a Found New Hardware screen, click Cancel. You can’t install your software that way.

  8. Click OK when done.
