Thanks TM! I couldn't have said it any better myself! Stubborn sot, isn't he?If you don't want to believe Microsoft's website and the canon download & support page then I suggest you contact canon support because there is nothing we can do to help you, your mind is already set.
We have gone above and beyond trying to help you and you're being not very dinkum, as you Aussies would say."Success is the ability to solve an actual problem at hand" and not from a distance.
Unless you're actually talking about writing a driver yourself, you'd have a really difficult time pulling that off. Not trying to be arrogant and I always love to learn new things, but there's not much room for improvement here when it comes to drivers, manipulating them and such. Or even finding them in the proper places.(and quite a few computer and driver tricks that no one here has even thought off} ...all several times by the way.
Ok, thanks for the effort mate! All that googling and copy and pasting must take it's toll. Lol. LolA simple Google search:
Found this rather quickly:
Great advice - at last my win7.64bit sees the printerEventually I just installed the Windows XP driver and it seems to work fine. The XP driver (both 32-bit and 64-bit) are available from the Canon web site:
32-bit driver (v1.80): http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0020458.asp
64-bit driver (v1.90): http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0022900.asp
Download, run the .exe to unzip the file. In the folder, run the "setup" or "setup64" application to install. It worked for me; hope it works for you too.
+1 :top: My Windows 7 x64 also couldn't set the print port automatically when I installed the XP driver, plus it told me the driver wasn't digitally signed and would be unavailable... Guess what? It was available, after I ran the MyPrinter Add On, as instructed by printerProducersRThives, and it set the printer port correctly. Thanks! And here's the link to the latest version of the Add On on Canon's site: My Printer Ver. 2.9.5And just to add it: You might need to run the MyPrinter Add On after the installation. Because during the installation of the driver linked by realkato you probably have to select a connection manually, but at least for me there was no selection "USB". Running the "My Printer" software afterwards and selecting Diagnostic and Repair fixed that. (Currently printing!)
