How do I add the new Xerox ColorQube copier to my Windows computer?updated 09/22/2011 3:55 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 ‘ColorQube 9303’.

Find your download in the downloads dialogue, and double click on the file.

Select 'Extract all files'.

Click 'Browse'.

Select 'Desktop'.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier6.png

Add the word '\drivers' to the end of the file path and click extract.

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’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier8.png

Select 'Devices and Printers'

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier9.png

Now, create a new printer by selecting ‘Add a Printer’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier10.png

This will launch the ‘Add Printer’ wizard. On the first screen, select ‘Add a local printer’

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier11.png

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/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier12.png

Enter ‘priv3313c.eecs.umich.edu’ as the printer name and ‘priv3313c port’ for the port name and then click ‘Next’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier13.png

Windows may say 'Additional port information required'. Simply ignore it and hit 'next'.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier14.png

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier15.png

When the dialogue appears, click ‘browse’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier16.png

In the drop down box, select ‘Desktop’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier17.png

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/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier18.png

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier19.png

On the next screen, select ‘Xerox ColorQube 9301’ as the model and click ‘Next’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier20.png

You may name the printer whatever you wish. Most people leave the default name as 'Xerox colorQube 9301 PS'. Click 'next'

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier21.png

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier22.png

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/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier23.png

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/colorqubeinstructions/win7addcopier24.png

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.
