Windows 7: Double sided printout

If the file is a .zip file, you have to open it with a utility like J-zip, 7-zip, etc. There should be a .exe and, other files. Then, you would use the "Extract" feature to extract the files to a folder of your choice. Then, run the .exe file.

Note that some of the other files are release notes which you can open. I see one of the software updates is for Google cloud print issues and another is for a Windows 10 problem. I would install all 4 of the software updates. If you look at the Details for each of the software updates, it will explain what the Print manager does.

I know about having to open a zip file, i thought windows had an automatic unzip file...why is it i had no problem installing the driver zip file on its own? I don't know what your referring to about software updating Google cloud and etc. I saw nothing about those files you mentioned. BTW, i did get double side of a form of IRS since i reinstalled the driver.

Since I have J-zip installed, when I right click on a .zip file and click on open, it opens in J-zip. Same if I double click on a .zip file. The right click context menu also has Extract options.

I don't know why you were able to run a .zip file. 3 of the drivers are shown as .exe files and one is shown as a .zip file.

You have to look in the Details of each driver, software, firmware at the website to see what it does.

If your printer is working the way you expect it too after installing the driver, then I wouldn't go any further unless you want to to be complete.

Ha,ha...thanks for sticking with me it was a 'journey'. The last hassle was with installing the Firmware and I was told to remove all usb connections if i am using a usb connection ( which I am ) in order for it to be installed correctly, and then i get a message that it maybe damaged if i am not using a Samsung toner, after all these years, i am not, but a discounted replacement, which i have been using for years with no problems. Then it said its complete when you see ready set on the printer. The only thing that I noticed was that i did not get the typical acknowledgement that windows gives you when your plugging or starting a device, but i did a notepad printout and it worked just fine...so the saga ends and thanks again.

I'm glad your problem is resolved. I know more about your printer than I do my own.
