    I don't see any attachments. Can you describe the steps you took to install
    the drivers and the text of the errors?

  3. Sorry about the attachment... that was copied and pasted from another post
    I'd put up where there was an "attachment" option.

    The steps performed are as follows:

    1) Utilize Prnt Mgmt, right click on drivers (local system) and select "Add
    2) Click "Next" @ Add Printer Wizard.
    3) Click "Next" again leaving "x64 Type 3 - User Mode" selected
    4) Select any driver from the list of available inbox drivers and click "Next"
    5) Click "Finish"

    The following two errors occur in order:

    1st error
    Window Title: "Add Printer Driver Wizard"
    "Unable to install Apollo P-1200, Type 3 - User Mode, x64 driver. Operation
    could not be completed (error 0x00000003)"
    Click "OK"

    2nd error
    Window Title: "Print Managment"
    "Failed to add driver. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000578)
    Click "OK"

    I don't get those errors when I try those steps. Have you looked at the
    %windir%\inf\ file to see if there are any obvious errors?
