Windows 7: Epson printer driver

Gunny,
This seems like the host computer/printer problem. I believe Seven is doing it fine, but the host is screwing it up.

Can you print from the XP computer? If so, make sure that the HOST COMPUTER has the drivers for the printer installed and THE SEVEN drivers as well.

I tried what you said myzr7 and I did this 3 times, and every time there was 3 pictures of Epson printers. I deleted all of them each time. Should I keep doing this until there are no more that show up.?

Thanx...Gunny

Lordbob I can print from my XP computer no problem. I know the XP has the drivers and when I go to install the printer on Win 7 it says it has the drivers too. Should I not get an error telling me if the drivers are not installed.?

I can go into the control panel, and printers and there will be 3 Epson printers showing I can delete them, close control panel open it again and the same 3 Epson printers are there again, I have done this 5 times now, same thing every time. What gives, why are they not staying removed.?

Thanx...Gunny

No. Those are the build in printers. They are not real, and I don't actually know how to use them...

Gunny
No, you wont get an error unless it NEEDS them. And make sure your HOST computer has the W7 drivers.

I think that program might be the way somebody here can look at your computers & network setup. I'm not as good as a lot of members here, but I have learned a lot by trial & error. Just do a Yahoo or google search for the program, it's Free for non-commercial use.

Lordbob-- You say make sure the host computer has the win 7 drivers. Expain this to me please. What 7 drivers are you referring to.? If you mean the printer drivers, why does the host computer need these for, and if so how do I find the drivers, and get them to the host computer.?

Thanx...Gunny

Sorry that is not working for you. I have a home network and a brother printer wired in by usb running on an xp pc. I have two windows 7 os's on the network and when I remove the brother from the device page they stay removed till I add them back manualy. I thought it would be the same for you. What win 7 version are you running? Can you take a snip shot of them 3 printer icons? and post it for us to look at? thanks
