Windows 7: Xerox Phaser 6280N-Windows can't open Add Printer

Xerox Phaser 6280N-Windows can't open Add Printer

i cannot seem to get my xerox phaser 6280 printer to work with windows 7. as indicated on the xerox website, i downloaded the updated driver. however, midway through the extraction process (running the 6280WinXP03V_PS.exe file), it stops and gives me this message: "Windows can't open Add Printer. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000007e)."

has anyone encountered this problem before? and if so, i'm hoping that someone has found a resolution to it.

any help would be very much appreciated!!

p.s. - i forgot to say that the printer shows up under device and printers and has a check mark on it which i assume implies it's ready to use. i'm able to print from adobe, notepad and paint but i'm unable to print from any office small business 2007 applications or any website page.
