    Question re: Win-XP 64-bit drivers

    Noo:

    You seem like an intelligent individual; perhaps you can enlighten me in a paragraph or two. I'm a sr. LAN/WAN engineer w/ extensive client/server admin & support skills, however, I write no code (and don't even pretend to understand it). So, tell me; "is it really that big of a deal for a developer to update a 32-bit driver into a 64-bit driver?" Because some of these product manufqctuirers are getting on my nerves with the delayed release of 64-bit drivers; they almost seem defiant, as if to say "Damn you, Microsoft, coming out with a 64-bit OS.

    I've been running XP-64 since July '05 and I'm still waiting on a Lexmark 7170 printer driver, as wekll as a Happauge TV-Recorder card driver, and any decent 64-bit Webcam. I'm starting to draw the conclusion that product manaufacturers believe that the general public will be very slow ot adopt 64-bit technology.

    Your thoughts?

    I good teknisshan

    Welcome to Windrivers techead...

    No idea what the manufacturers are playing at, other than possibly they have the market decided as 32bit is for thin clients, desktops and the like, and 64 bit is for servers and those weirdos that run solaris etc..

    I haven't done a survey of linux 64bit drivers... I wonder if they are in the same boat?

    Lexmark, however aren't exactly bleeding edge. If you want to have a serious look, then see what 64bit drivers are like for jetdirect/network ready HP printers...?

    Welcome to Windrivers bghunur

    This is a standard 136 column dot matrix printer... use the equivalent epson driver supplied with windows. If that doesn't work, use the IBM proprinter driver. The driver for that printer is actually included with XP. I don't have a copy of 2000 to check, but it is likely that the Wipro Ex-1050 is also in windows 2000.

    Welcome to Windrivers skootsly69
    There is some stuff here for your printer but it is not complete.

    I can't vouch for these drivers here but you can try them.

    ey there NooNoo!
    I saw a very knowledgable looking post by you in a forum about problems with installing a printer and I made a profile in order to be able to contact you. My EsponDX3850 scanner/printer won't now work with my vista computer. It has done before but recently I always get an error - printing message and epson scan won't open. I've uninstalled it all etc but probably not thoroughly enough, ie in 'safe mode' etc which I am not familiar with. I think I have lost several precious hours of my life over this already. ANY assistance would be greatly massively thankfully appreciated.

    I have also installed the latest scan and drivers and it is closer to printing now than before. It may be relevant it never shows up in device manager even as an unknown device. thankyou very much

    Welcome to Windrivers Sheldon

    As I said when you emailed me, you need to post what the error message actually is
    Did you try downloading a new driver?

    Hi thanks for the reply,

    I have tried installing the new drivers off the website, which i did initially when I first used vista and it worked. I had to disconnect and move my computer and have recieved various updates from windows in the meantime, and something new has meant I can no longer connect the two.
    I have today uninstalled everything and rebooted everytime, then reinstalled the new driver and scan.
    When i try to start the scan programme i get
    'EPSON scan cannot be started. Please use the Trouble shooting assistant to solve the problem. Do you want to open the troubleshooting assistant?'
    when i send something to print the message 'printing -error ' or 'deleting -printing' comes up
    THNAK YOU!!
