Installing the PCL Printer Driver


  • To install this printer driver, you must have an account that has Manage Printers permission. Log on as an Administrators or Power Users group member.

Use the following procedure to install the PCL printer driver.

1Close all applications except this manual.

2Insert the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.

The installer starts.

3Select an interface language, and then click [OK].

The default interface language is English.

4Click [PCL 6 Printer Driver] or [PCL 5c Printer Driver].

The software license agreement appears.

5After reading the agreement, click [I accept the agreement.], and then click [Next >].

6In the dialog box that appears, click [Add a new printer], select the [Search for network printers.] check box, and then click [Next >].

If the search fails, the printer driver is installed via port LPT1.

Check the port settings and printer's IP address again, before reconfiguring the settings.

7When the list of found printers appears, click this printer (whose IP address you specified before the installation), and then click [Next >].

8Double-click the printer name to display the printer's settings, change the settings as required, and then click [Continue].

9If a message appears informing you that the installation was successfully completed, click [Finish].


  • When you click [Finish], the [Digital Signature Not Found] dialog box might appear. To continue the installation, click [Yes].

  • Auto Run might not work under certain operating system settings. If this is the case, launch “Setup.exe” from the CD-ROM root directory.

  • To stop the selected software installing, click [Cancel] before the installation is complete.

  • A message appears if there is a newer version of the printer driver already installed. If there is, you cannot install the printer driver using Auto Run. If you still want to install the printer driver, use [Add Printer]. See If a Message Appears during Installation.
