    Epson XP-405 download driver not working


    I have a Epson XP-405 and it worked well on my other computer with windows 7.
    Now I've windows 8.1, I've installed the printer with the CD.. the scanner works, but not the printer because of the driver..
    Now I went to the Epson home page (http://www.epson.it/it/it/viewcon/corporatesite/products/mainunits/overview/11541) and downloaded the last driver download :
    Driver (v7.01) 17-ott-2013 20.35 MBs


    • Versione: 7.01
    • Data di rilascio: 17-ott-2013
    • Formato file: EXE
    • Dimensione file: 20.35 MBs



    I tryed to install it but it sayed "the printer driver software can not be installed"
    I also tryed with a older version, the 7.0 version but it also doesn't works..
    How can I do to use my printer??

    Thanks! (..and sorry about my english if it's not perfect! :P )
