    Lexmark new software driver coming.


    I spoke with Lexmark today, to see if there is any way to get the all in one scanner on my Pinnacle Pro 901 to work in Win 8 64. Ot prints fine wirelessly or with USB, byut no scanner access. They informed me that No is the answer, but they are making Win 8 software/drivers for all there popular lines that should be out "Next Month"

    Just passing that along.

    Thanks for the heads-up rialcnis!! Mine only works via USB with included windows 8 drivers. And I can scan from it through Adobe Acrobat. However, connecting via WiFi no longer works. I had it setup with Windows 7 Ultimate through WiFi before and now WiFi does not work... how did you set it up via WiFi? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    After giving up on the regular win 7 64 software to work I I uninstalled and installed the printer in the control panel >>Devices and Printers>>> Add a printer. At first nothing happened then went into it again and both the USB and Wireless appeared to install. So I CAN print wirelessly---just not scan. Windows installed it.

    I'm assuming you are talking about an all in one scanner as I am. That apparently will come in the update, "next month."

    Thx. I've done what you did many times, but it doesn't work. When it's not connected via USB (ONLY WIFI TO THE NETWORK) and I (Add Printer) through control panel it does find it on the network, but when I press next to add... Lexmark Pro901 is not listed. Only Pro710 & Pro910 are listed. I tried using both Pro710 & Pro910 and it doesn't work. What did you do?

    I do remember having to go at it a few times. Hmmm, it popped up pro 901 wireless and worked. I can't remember if there was anything else I did, other then do it right after a full reboot of printer and computer.

    Ok. Looks like I'll have to wait another month and see if they make the software/drivers for it.

    We can hope. I have things in the scanner now, waiting.

    Ok, looks like I was finally able to connect through WiFi, but there's a delay for it to print and scanning doesn't work. I have to connect via USB in order to scan using Adobe. Hopefully, they'll come out with full support/software ASAP and not delay it. Come Lexmark & Microsoft. This is not acceptable.

    Nice. I guess there was a delay for me now that you mention it.

    I am using the 90 day Windows 8 and got my Lexmark Pro 705 to print via USB and from all the home computers. But not via wireless. And do not have the full program installed to do scan like on the other computers. Will have to wait until next month for new program.
