One day, the labeler stopped working, no communication. I rebooted, uninstalled, reinstalled, got the latest from the Brother website, and every time I get "printer could not be installed. please shut down all programs, reboot, and if still persists, contact admin."
I followed every thing that Brother support gave me as well. I took the unit home, and it installed fine on my comp at home, so prob exists on OS. I left that one at home and got another brand new one. Same non-results.
Frustated, I took the Brother back and exchanged it for a Dymo label printer. Same exact results. This message comes up when the drivers for the unit are being installed.
I am in down time now and am ready to throw something through a window. I would gladly update this comp at my shop to XP, but it's not mine and too old anyway.
The frustrating thing is that the original label printer worked fine for months. I haven't installed or removed anything except the printer software. Just one day it stops, and windows won't let me install any new printer.
Driver reg issue?
