How do I add the new Xerox copiers to my Windows computer?updated 07/06/2009 5:58 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…’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_2.gif

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_3.gif

When the download completes, click close.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_4.gif

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_5.gif

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’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_7.gif

Select ‘Printers and Faxes’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_8.gif

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_9.gif

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…’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_11.gif

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’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_13.gif

Select ‘Finish’ to complete the port wizard.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_14.gif

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/windows_addcopier_15.gif

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_16.gif

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_17.gif

  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’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_22.gif

  1. When asked to print a test page, select ‘No’ and then click ‘Next’. We need to do some additional configuration before it will work properly.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_23.gif

Because this driver has not passed ‘Windows Logo’ testing, you will be shown a warning. Simply click ‘Continue Anyway’.

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

This will complete the ‘Add Printer’ wizard. Now, go back to the printers window, right click on the newly created printer, and choose ‘Properties’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_25.gif

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

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_26.gif

In the accounting window, choose ‘Xerox Standard Accounting’ from the drop down box and click ‘OK’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_27.gif

Now, once that dialogue closes, choose the ‘General’ tab and click ‘Print Test Page’.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_28.gif

You will be prompted to enter your User ID before printing continues.

http://www.eecs.umich.edu/dco/files/images/windows_addcopier_29.gif

Now, click ‘OK’ and go check the printer to see if it printed correctly.
