Lexmark Printer (All-In-One) - Driver?

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Charles Kenyon, Mar 16, 2006.

  1. I have a Lexmark X6170 All-In-One printer (new). Works fine but Windows XP64
    doesn't work with it.
    Lexmark has no drivers to suggest. (On their website or email tech-support)
    It seems to be a relatively straightforward printer.

    Any suggestion for another driver I might be able to use with it to print?
    (If I need the scanner or other features I can switch to XP32 but printing
    is pretty basic.)

  2. It appears to be one of those printers that can't print without the
    proprietary software loaded. If so, you're just plain out of luck. However,
    since it supports USB, here's a workaround -- run a supported 32-bit Windows
    version in a virtual machine, using VMWare. Since VMWare supports USB, you
    can connect to it directly that way. (This will not work with Virtual
    Server, since there's no USB support. But if it has a network card, then you
    could do it that way through VS.)

    My Canon multi function has drivers. I know...that doesn't help. But I
    just had to gloat.
