How do I add the Xerox 5675 copiers to my Windows computer?updated 09/22/2011 3:35 PM | Print | Edit | History

Before we can install the new printer, we first need to download drivers for it. To do this, open your web browser and go to http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/drivers/drivers.php. On this page, select ‘Workcentre 5675’.

On the next page, right click on the Windows XP drivers and select ‘Save Target As…’.

When the dialogue opens, click the ‘Desktop’ button and then click ‘save’.

When the download completes, click close.

Now, go to the desktop and find the file that just downloaded. Right click on it and select ‘Extract All’.

This will start the ‘Extraction Wizard’. Keep all default values and click next. Once the wizard completes, click ‘Finish’ to exit.

The required printer drivers should now appear in a folder on your desktop.

Now we can go ahead and add the printer.

Start by opening the Start Menu and choosing ‘Control Panel’.

Now, select ‘Printers and Other Hardware’.

Select ‘Printers and Faxes’.

If you already have the old copier installed, simply right click on its icon and select ‘Delete’.

Now, create a new printer by selecting ‘Add a Printer’ from the menu on the left.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_10.gif

This will launch the ‘Add Printer’ wizard. On the first screen, select ‘Local Printer…’ and UNCHECK ‘automatically detect…’.

Now, we need to create a new printer port. Select the ‘Create a new port’ option and select ‘Standard TCP/IP Port’ as the type and then click ‘Next’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_12.gif

Enter ‘priv3817.eecs.umich.edu’ as the printer name and ‘priv3817 port’ for the port name and then click ‘Next’.

Select ‘Finish’ to complete the port wizard.

Now we need to specify what driver to use for the newly created printer. On this screen, select ‘Have Disk’.

  1. When the dialogue appears, click ‘browse’.

  1. In the drop down box, select ‘Desktop’.

  1. Now, double click the folder on the desktop that contains the drivers you extracted earlier and then click ‘Open’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_18.gif

Once the dialogue closes, click ‘OK’ to continue.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_19.gif

On the next screen, select ‘Xerox Workcentre 5675 PS’ as the model and click ‘Next’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_20.gif

  1. On the next screen, choose whether or not this should be your default printer and then click ‘Next’ to continue.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_21.gif

  1. Choose the ‘Do not share this printer’ and click ‘Next’.

  1. Now click 'Finish.'

However, we aren't quite done yet. Go back to the 'Devices and Printers' menu, and right click on the new Xerox ColorQube we just added. Select 'printer properties'

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_24.gif

When the dialogue appears, open the ‘configuration’ tab and click the ‘Accounting’ button.

In the accounting window, choose ‘Xerox Standard Accounting’ from the drop down box. Enter your account number in the 'default user ID' section. Click okay, and then click apply.
