NOTE: If this is a new computer and you have McAfee Live Safe installed, pause real time scan for at least 15 minutes to install the printer as McAfee will block the installation process.
Installing the printer
- Turn on the printer, wait for the status light to display green, then plug its USB cable into the PC. After Windows installs its USB Printing Support driver (seen in Devices and Printers under Unspecified), the printer is ready for driver installation.
- Run the downloaded file, which extracts the drivers and runs the DriverWizard. You will see references to Seagull Scientific, Inc., which is normal. Follow the prompts to upgrade an older driver, or install a new driver.
- If there is an older version of the driver installed, the DriverWizard can upgrade in place. Reboot the PC if prompted. After you log back in, it may prompt to reboot again; please do so. When you log in again, it should confirm removal of the old driver(s).
