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.
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’.
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’.
Once the dialogue closes, click ‘OK’ to continue.
On the next screen, select ‘Xerox Workcentre 5675 PS’ as the model and click ‘Next’.
Because this driver has not passed ‘Windows Logo’ testing, you will be shown a warning. Simply click ‘Continue Anyway’.
This will complete the ‘Add Printer’ wizard. Now, go back to the printers window, right click on the newly created printer, and choose ‘Properties’.
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 and click ‘OK’.
Now, once that dialogue closes, choose the ‘General’ tab and click ‘Print Test Page’.
You will be prompted to enter your User ID before printing continues.
Now, click ‘OK’ and go check the printer to see if it printed correctly.
This concludes the tutorial. If you have any additional problems, please contact us.
