    Dear all ,

    my printer, deskjet d2660, cannot install. It is only the exit button. It is the compatibly issues?

    Unfortunately, many device drivers are not working on on Windows 8 Developer Preview. Of course, this was expected as we're still in pre-beta but it would still be a good idea to set up a dual boot (if you haven't already) and use another OS. Instructions can be found below.

    I just had to send a scan to a client of mine using my Brother Printer/Fax/Scan device.

    I never installed the Brother software for the device but once I placed the document on the scanner and selected "Scan Image," lo and behold, Win8 8102 perked up and scanned it with the Windows Fax and Scanner app.

    I'm happy!

    I didn't have to re-boot into Win7 for this simple task.

    Nice goin', Win8 8102!

    Now ... if only I could get Autocad Architecture 2012 to work with Win8 8102 ...

    Well, there you go. Some printer drivers work. Hopefully the beta release will fix the current compatibility issues.

    But I want to set up a dual boot, will need to download the installation files and it will takes long long time to download... and my internet time limit is not enough.

    Built-in software does the very basic of functions. Much like built-in wifi.

    Did you install the driver at all?

    What's the error when you run the install from the CD provided with the printer?

    This is only supported Windows XP, Vista, Me/2000 only, other os you need to install need to download from the internet. My operating system is not listed there.

    That's not answering my question. Besides have you tried the Windows 7 drivers?
