Lexmark printer (510 series) software installation error with Windows 7

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hello everyone,

Please can anyone help me out of the following problem?

I have a printer Lexmark 510, which I was effectively using with my Windows XP before installing the Windows 7. Now with the Windows 7, I am facing software installation error. I tried a lot with a given installation disk. After inserting the disk & accepting the terms & conditions the installation wizard appears and it shows successfully installed the software. But when I start my printer for using it shows 'Software is not installed properly'.

Even I tried downloading the software from the Internet which was for Windows XP & 7 but it didn't work. So I just want to know whether this series is supported by Windows 7 or not? If yes, please explain me the other ways of installing this software which is compatible with Windows 7.

Thanks.

Julia,

I checked on the system requirements for the Lexmark 510 and found that Windows Vista is the latest Operating System supported by the driver.

However you might still be able to install the program properly by running the compatibility wizard to install the driver using Windows XP compatibility. This should be able to install the drivers correctly for your printer.

You might also try installing the drivers for Vista x86 (32Bit) which is a closer compatibility with Windows 7 Download the driver.

Happy Computing.
