Windows 7: Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

Driver for Canon LBP-1120 Lasershot on W7 x64

Hi,

I have been searching several websites, downloaded a lot of junk and tested a great many so called solutions. In spite of all efforts I could not find a working solution for the LBP-1120 on W7 x64.
Although I guess most LBP-1120 users got tired of searching and simlpy threw away their printer, I refuse to do that. So I'm running it on Virtual PC under W7 x64, a complicated afair if one has to print just a few copies. The latest thread on this (and most other forums) is of 2009, so did anything happen after that date?
Does any one know of a working (tested!)driver solution for this printer? It's a shame that Cannon did not provide a decent driver. The vista / W7 x64 does not run on x64 platforms in any mode! Even for old Epsons I was able to find W7 x64 drivers.

Kind regards,
Dave

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

Thank you for your advice, however it does not work. As mentioned in earlier treads, also the newest LBP1120 driver (R1.10 V1.1) only works on a W7 x32 platform. The driver package (*.zip) will only install if recognized by the printer. It does not have an executable installation or set-up file which one can install before the printer is connected. This also prevents that one could run the exe in a win32 compatabillity mode. If the printer is connected and powered-up and forced to find the driver, it simply tells that the package does not have a suitable driver.

Have you tested the printer on a different computer?

Yes I did. On a W7 x32 laptop no problem with the driver. However on a W7 x64 laptop a definitive No GO! I think these findings are in line with all other posts that can be found on the Internet. It seems to be a matter which is hard to solve unless Canon would provide a x64 driver, which they obviously do not intend to do. Most people still operating the LBP-1120 on a x64 platform are using th virtual XP solution, which is rather complicated and timeconsuming.

Dave

Statement taken from the Microsoft Website: This printer is not compatible with the Windows 7 64bit.

Only Windows 32bit has the drivers available.

Maybe you can contact Canon and find out if the drivers will be available for this product.

A couple of years ago Canon announced there would be no drivers for the LBP-1120 and similar laserprinters suitable for W7. Later on they launched the W7 x32 driver, probably a modification from the Vista x32 driver. The last couple a years Canon sticks to its earlier announcement that there will be no x64 driver. Very customer unfriendly and a great many LPBP users will certainly think about that when they are buying their next printer.

Perhaps, it's time for an upgrade.

Nothing has happened since 2009

Hi Dave,

I was in contact with Canon yesterday on the same issue. Win 7 x64-environment trying to connect my LBP-1120. FYI - No news from Canon and nothing will be done according to an - at least honest - employee on their support team.

As you, I've tried every adolescent who have posted a "fix" with multiple computer virus infections to follow. No need for you to attempt once more, at least, I haven't found any solution out there.

My utter respect goes to you for doing the dual-boot solution. I don't have the same temper and will not be keeping my LBP-1120, although I've been very pleased with it in the past. So I'll be hunting for a new one - although this one will surely not be from Canon after this experience.


Best,
Michael from Denmark

A VM does not require a dual boot, which is why people use it when they have applications that will not run in the same environment. I would look into a VM before I pitched the printer. You can run an old copy of XP or whatever in the VM.

Canon has free Linux drivers for the LBP-1120. You might try Linux in the VM if you don't have an old spare OS laying around.
