How do I locate and install drivers for my Epson printer?


How do I locate and install drivers for my Epson printer?


As most Epson printers do not ship with driver discs, drivers must be obtained via the Internet.  You may locate these drivers in two ways: First, you may find them on the product page for your particular printer; second, you may obtain a recent version of the Epson Advanced Printer Driver directly at this link: ftp.posguys.com/Epson/APD.exe.

(The remainder of this FAQ assumes that you have downloaded the Epson Advanced Printer Driver.  This FAQ does not apply to the Epson TM-T88II; if you are seeking driver installation support for a TM-T88II printer purchased from POSGuys.com, please contact us.)

Please use the following instructions to correctly install your Epson printer:

  1. Run the install file for the Epson Advanced Printer Driver (usually named APD_4xxE.exe, where xx refers to the version number of the driver).
  2. Click Next. Click to agree with the license terms, then click Next. Click to select Standard, then click Next.
  3. Click Add. From Select driver, choose your printer. In the Printer name field, enter your desired printer name, or leave the field as it is. From Port Type, select the correct port type for your printer. If you desire this printer to be your default printer, click to select Set as Default Printer. Click Next.
  4. Leave the Port Settings screen configured to default settings, and click Next.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each additional printer, then click Next. Click Next again to install your printer.
  6. Reboot your computer to complete your installation. If you wish to test your printer, see our instructions for printing a Windows test page.
