problem with printer in windows developer preview

Answers

  • Have you installed the newest drivers? If not download them from the manufacturers website. Some drivers might be available using Windows update

    Since Windows 8 has not been released yet not all drivers are going to work with it. Some drivers are very specific about the operating system version, so you might have to wait until they release Windows 8 drivers (if they make them for your model).
     

     

     

    Check the manufacturers support site for newer drivers for your printer, they might have Windows 7 drivers that you can download and install. Download the correct bit level for your computer - 32 or 64 bit - and then install them.

     

    If the drivers don't install, try installing them in compatibility mode.

    Troubleshoot Compatibility

    This can help with some (but not all) programs/drivers:
    1) Uninstall the program if it's already installed. Then when you install/reinstall it instead of double clicking on the install file right click it and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility"
    2) Then click "Try Recommended Settings" and in the next windows click "Start the Program" to install it.
    3) After it installs see if it works correctly. Please note - some programs may not be able to run in Windows 8.
