Brother Printer Mfc 420cn Pro Suite Will Not Work


Brother multi-function printer mfc-420cn pro suite will not work with windows 7 and brother says they have no fix! I can print only and but no longer scan my documents to pdf and brother customer service support says they do not have windows 7 drivers for this software so just have to wait and see or buy a new printer. Mine is only 2 years old so hoping someone out there has an idea or if having same problem, maybe if enough people complain, they will come up with the fix.

Brother Mfc-8840d Printer Not Compatible

I have just installed windows 7 (32-bit) on my father's laptop computer. When i installed the software for his brother mfc-8840d printer, windows told me the software was not compatible. Checked brother's website and indeed, the brother mfc pro suite software is not compatible with windows 7. No problem, windows still installed the scanner driver and i can scan with the unit. However, the files created are in tif format. Windows only allows for saving in a few formats, including tif. Is there a way to configure the scanning feature in windows to save as a pdf file?

Printer Driver For 64-bit Brother Mfc 9800 Printer

I can't get my brother mfc 9800 printer to work properly with windows 7 64 bit. It seems to work with my other vista machine but i can't find the ms updated printer driver that is theoretically installed in this hp touchsmart computer. I've tried all the worthless troubleshooting wizards and have come up with nothing.

Brother Mfc 255cw Color Printer Problem

We've just purchased a new computer running windows 7. We attached our printer, it was detected and immediately configured. (It's a brother mfc -255cw color printer). We've used it for several weeks with no problems. Now, suddenly, it won't print and says it's because of a problem with the current printer setup (although as far as i can tell it hasn't changed at all).

I went to check the properties and got an error message and i tried to "find" the printer but got the error message: the active directory domain service was unavailable. (Although according to the computer control panel it is the currently installed, default printer). What's going on?

Brother Mfc-425cn Printer Problem To Print On Network

I do have a brother mfc-425cn printer and i cannot get it to print as network printer (which was no problem with windows xp). When installing windows 7 drivers, it has been found correctly and without problems in the network. The whole installation process worked fine. However the printer does not react, when i want to print s. Th. So i did the windows 7 troubleshoot. The following 2 problems are found but cannot be fixed automatically:

1)"printer brother mfc-425 usb printer cannot be contacted over the network" - "not fixed".

2) "problem with wireless adapter or access point" - "detected"

As i said the printer was found in the network without any problems during installation. I also have no problems to access other computers or the router in the network. Internet access is fine. So the whole network seems to work just fine, just the printer does not respond.

Brother Mfc-8440 Scanner Driver Win 7 X64

I installed a new pc with windows 7. My printer is a brother mfc-8440 connected via usb. Brother does not have windows 7 drivers for this mfc, but the built-in windows 7 printer driver works ok. Printing works just fine. My problrem has to do with scanning. Windows 7 also has a built-in scanner (imaging) driver. However, i have 2 problems with it:a) it won't scan to pdf. I can overcome this with a 3rd party scanner utility (pdf converter, paperport, etc). This one i'm ok with since 3rd party software works. B) it seems the driver does not include legal size paper (8. 5 x 14) in the list of supported paper sizes. I'm unable to scan a legal size document using the windows 7 utility (or 3rd party software). Since the problem is present in both programs, i'm guessing it has to do with the windows 7 driver.

I found a suggestion to use the xp x64 driver from brother and install it under compatibility mode. I attempted this, but get an error message from brother that says "this driver is meant for a different os version. "Please help while this is the only problem i'm having with the move from an old xp machine to windows 7, it's a major hassle because i frequently need to scan legal size docs and send them in pdf format (as you can guess, i work in a legal office).

Windows 7 should be 'plug and play' with axiom pro 49 keyboard controller but doesn't work - tells me 'no device drivers' i have recently bought a dell studio 1557 with windows 7, 64 bit.

There are no separate drivers yet for the axiom 49 - i have been to the m-audio website for directions and they say that with windows 7 it should be plug and play. Please help, what am i doing wrong? I can't get windows 7 to plug and play!

Hp Officejet Pro 8000 Printer Wont Print

Hp officejet pro 8000 printer won't print unless it's set as the default. I have an hp officejet pro 8000dn inkjet printer and have just bought a new computer with windows 7 64-bit home premium preintalled. I loaded the hp win7 64-bit driver for this printer and the only way i can get it to print is if i set it as the default. I don't want to do this because my default printer is a b&w laser which i use more frequently. How can i get the hp 8000 to print without setting it as the default?

Printer Shared Problem With Hp Officejet Pro 8000

I am having a problem with using from windows 7 professional a printer shared from windows vista home premium edition. I just installed windows 7 professional 64bit on my hp tx touchsmart tx2 and tried to use an hp officejet pro 8000 printer shared from a windows vista home premium edition machine (dell vostro 200). The printer works fine when directly attached. When i use the shared version, the printer windows displays the spooled task for a while, then the task disappears without anything happening with the printer

Yes, i am getting connected to the vista machine as well as to the shared printer and the printer driver is already installed on the w7 machine. But when i try to print the test page or any other document for that matter, nothing happens.

Problem With Lexmark Z43 Printer On Win 7 Pro

Trying to run lexmark z43 printer from windows 7 pro. According to ms it should load a suitable driver automatically and work. It does not. I have old xp driver available on computer (cjxp43le.exe) - latest from lexmark. When previously using vista it found and loaded a z42/43 driver that worked but i do not have this available. Where can i find this driver or can ms forward a copy to me and i will manually force windows 7 to use it. Lexmark (sweden) apparently have a z43 working with windows 7 but seem unable to specify the driver.

Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium

I am attempting to install adobe cs4 design premium onto my laptop. I have the windows 7 home premium operating system. I have seen that a lot of people discussing this topic have had no problems installing software, while others have had nothing but problems. I'm interested in finding out whether those having problems have home premium or ultimate. Within the adobe site, it says that they tested their software on ultimate, not home premium. So would responders tell whether they had problems or not and also which windows 7 version they used?

Visual Studio 2005 Pro Compatibility With Win 7 Pro 64-bit

Can i use visual studio 2005 pro on windows 7 pro 64 bit? I use visual studio 2005 pro on xp pro 32 bit. Can i use it on windows 7 pro 64 bit?I have looked on the vs site and could not find a definitive answer to using this version on my new os. I know, they're putting visual studio 2010 et al. I do not have the kind of cash they're trying to get from me. T least, if i can use it, i can do some self made/self-used projects. I will download the free development systems. But, they run out after 60-90 days. I still need to get ms office standard 2007/10.

I have set up a win 7 dual boot on my laptop which had vista home. The c drive has vista along with all my programs including microsoft office suite 2003 and 2007.

Add Printer Does Not Work

I recently tried to install a new printer on a laptop running windows 7 ultimate. After attempting this, i can no longer add a new printer nor print to my existing printers. If i try to add a new printer, a message appears that states: unable to install printer. The print processor does not exist. If i try to print to an existing printer, the computer claims that the printer does not exist. Is there any good way to "reset" the windows printing subsystem? 

I'm really at my wits end with this issue and do not want to be forced to reinstall windows to correct this issue. I have checked the windows spooler service and it is running and does not appear to be generating any errors in the event viewer. I have also come across some previous posts that stated you may be able to install a new printer with a generic driver first and then change it, but this does not work either. Any recommendations regarding how to correct this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Epson Cx4600 Printer Will Not Work

Ms says epson cx4600 printer is win7 compatible with driver from epson. Epson says they have no intention of providing driver. I just purchased a pc with win7. Epson cx4600 printer will not work with win7.microsoft win7 compatibility chart indicates that the printer is compatible (proudly displaying the win7 compatibility logo) and provides a link to download a driver.

The link takes you to the epson site which states that no driver is available for the cx4600 printer. I emailed epson about the availability of a driver. Their response was that epson would not be providing a win7 driver. So any suggestions to make epson cx4600 work with win7?

Hp Laserjet 5p Printer Wont Work

Just bought new pc and it has windows 7. Old hp laserjet 5p printer still worked with last pc (xp). This printer used parallel port so bought and connected with a parallel to usb printer cable. Thought all was cool when it looked like the printer was recognized as "new device" but my word document wouldn't print.

Review of control panel indicated pc had recognized some strange other printer, so it was deleted and i used troubleshooter to find and download the old printer driver. Pc now shows the correct printer but my documents still will not print. What can/should i do get these 2 to work together? Don't want to have to buy a new printer just to get something that works with 7.

Dual Boot With Win 7 Pro And Xp Pro

I would like to set up a dual boot on my computer. I currently have 2 internal hard drives installed. I would like to have the current c: drive continue to run xp and the second hard drive (d:) run win 7.

Questions:

1. Do i need to buy a full version of win 7 pro or can i buy the upgrade?
2. Is this the best way to run the dual boot on the 2 hard drives? I realize that win 7 pro does have an xp mode, but i would rather keep my current xp running as is.
3. Can you advise the best way for me to install win 7 for this.
