Epson Status Monitor again....



Before the forum closedown someone suggested me to install the Status Monitor (version 2 since my printer is an Epson Stylus Photo EX) using the Windows XP compatibility mode, which I successfully did. Now my problem is that the status monitor can't find the printer even though it's connected and turned on. If I remember correctly, the status monitor installs a special "Epson LPT port driver" under Windows 9x replacing the standard LPT driver but of course this driver is not available for WinXP. Could this be the cause ? Any advice? Thanks!


Yes, there're XP drivers but only for the new models :( Anyways someone on this forum managed to install the old status monitor 2 application but I had no chance to ask more details cause the forum went down and now the message base has been deleted, so I lost my contacts.

Had the same problem myself, The final solution was to replace the printer. It wasn`t the answer I wanted to receive either!!:mad:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
