Epson Stylus Pro 3800 Professional Edition

Selected FAQ

A Security Warning message appears when I install a Windows Vista-compatible driver that I downloaded from Epson. Why do I see this message?
The message is a warning that the driver does not have a Windows Vista Digital Signature (which means it’s not Windows Vista certified)*, but the Epson driver is compatible with Windows Vista. Click Run to continue the installation. Windows Vista Digitally Signed drivers will be available at a later date. Keep checking our web site for updates.

*Under Microsoft’s Windows family of consumer operating systems, certification is required for those vendors who wish to use the Designed for Windows logo on their products. A certified product may be included on Microsoft’s Hardware Compatibility List, a resource often used by corporate IT departments when making purchasing decisions. Furthermore, Windows ME, 2000, XP and Vista drivers are expected to have a digital certificate, which proves they have passed Windows Certification. The digital certificate earned is an encrypted code that is added to the driver files. The operating system reads this certificate to determine if the driver has passed certification. Without the certificate, the user is notified of potential compatibility issues when installing the device. Windows certification is designed to ensure that the new hardware device complies with operating system requirements.
