It seems there is a problem with your printer software and that’s what’s causing the error. Usually when you buy a printer, the package already includes the installation CD so you can easily install its driver on your computer. But the problem is, if the version of the software is compatible with your operating system.

Since there is no way you can make the software install successfully, try downloading your printer’s software from the Canon website instead. Since you did not include the model name or model number of your Canon printer, head down to Canon Support Drivers and Downloads.

In there, you need to enter your printer’s model name, for example without quotes “mg2220” or “pixma mg2220”, and then you can select the available software for your printer. Also, make sure you select your operating system in “Operating System” to allow the page to display the available downloads for your printer based on the operating system you selected.
