    Epson 7600 Printer Driver for Win 8


    Can anyone provide instructions to get the vista 64-bit driver for an Epson 7600 working in Windows 8? Epson will not provide a new driver. The vista driver worked in windows 7. I followed the instructions on the Epson driver website, but the driver installation did not work. The printer shows up as an unrecognized device in the Win 8 hardware list.

    Not a direct answer to your question but the Epson site says drivers for Win 8 64-bit drivers can be expected soon.
    they also state in the meantime to use the Win 7 driver and state how to install it. Apparently the Win 8 fault USB driver needs to be uninstalled first. Check it out and see if it helps:

    Yes, I read the Epson statement and instructions on the 7600 driver. However, those instructions did not work. Then I called Epson tech support and talked to a real person. He said that the message on their site was just boilerplate and was not true. There was no Win7 driver for the 7600, and there will not be a Win8 driver either. He also said that no one at Epson tried the work-around instructions because they themselves do not have a 7600 printing to try them on. Unbelievable, but that's what he said! He could only suggest that I contact Microsoft for driver support.

    I am hoping that someone has a better answer, and a way to get the vista 64-bit driver working with Win8.

    Thanks.

    Amazing Ok, good luck. Hope someone here on the forum can guide you through getting those vista drivers installed.

    I am trying to use my Epson 7600 on Win 7. I downloaded the Vista driver, but I get red lights, so it doesn't work. Can anyone advise me on how to use that driver or other alternatives, such as a generic Epson driver? Thanks.

Hi there If you use one of these there is a driver for it on the Epson site for Windows 8.1 but download THE DRIVER not the utility. When installing you need to watch the popup window very quickly and select MANUAL when it asks you to choose the port (USB connection). If you don't do this the...
