Installing Printer & Cutter Drivers

Manual installation of printer drivers
Requirements for installing manufacturers’ driver software are generally platform-specific. Manual installation of printer drivers is:
  • Almost never necessary on Macintosh computers. Mac OS X displays messages in the exceptional cases that include Canon printers with USB connections.
  • Required on Windows computers for USB printers and FireWire connections, but unnecessary for network-connected printers.
Automated configuration of the first printer used by PrintFactory depends on your connecting and turning on the device prior to installing PrintFactory software.
On Windows PCs, manufacturers’ printer drivers establish printer ports that PrintFactory detects on installation. If the driver for a printer connected to a USB port or parallel (LPT) port of a PrintFactory computer is unavailable, the printer is not configurable upon completion of the installation procedure.
