Installing Xerox Phaser 6110 / (N) in Windows 7!

UPDATE: meanwhile Xerox updated the promised Windows 7 32bit and 64bit drivers and are available for download from driver downloads

So since my old printer died (I have put it on sale including new ink carts! sale is on ebay, here.), I have decided to get a new one, and the new one is a Installing Xerox Phaser 6110 N as a friend suggested it to me.

Just one small problem: Windows 7 drivers are not available according to the database they are supposed to be released Q1 / 2010 but I question this since they recently decided to stop selling the printer!

And contact email support is a waste as they will send you no email back, and if you ask for a reply you get the answer “call our support hotline”.

Installing it on Windows 7 64bit was no problem as just running the setup prg in compatibility mode for Vista worked but when I wanted to install it on my Aspire One netbook this trick didn’t work for Windows 7 32bit! Unfortunately it’s still detecting that it isn’t Vista and denies installing! And the driver I downloaded had no inf file for installing manually. I have found out that on various places of Xerox’s hoempage you get the same driver versions but some packages contain the necessary files for installing the driver manually!

(Yes, network compatible!)

So if you are having the problem feel free to email me and I will send the file.
