Windows 7: Xerox Phaser 3117 driver error on Windows 7

Xerox Phaser 3117 driver error on Windows 7


I am having trouble in installing the printer (Xerox Phaser 3117) driver on my Windows 7 x64 version.

It is giving an error "Windows policy is blocking NT 4.0 drivers".

I have never used Windows NT before.

I have tried changing the disallow kernel mode drivers to install to disable but still has not worked for me.

I badly need to run my printer.

Thank you.

Windows 7 x64

Hi, banerjen

I've had the same problem. The solution was rather simple: install driver for Samsung ML 1710 - it perfectly suits Xerox 3117. But it's important to completely delete from system all previously installed Xerox 3117 drivers.
I'm hope it will help you.

Windows 7 x64

Hi Skydiver,

Thanks a lot. Well, I later on figured out that it was creating the problem because I had earlier installed the Phaser 3117 for Windows XP drivers and did not uninstall it.

After I uninstalled the XP drivers, the Windows 7 driver installed like clockwork.

Anyway, it's nice to know that Samsung drivers are also compatible with Xerox printers.
