Installing a WorkCentre 6515 as a stand alone USB printer/scanner

Product Name: WorkCentre 6515
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

I cannot beleive that it is not possible to simply plug in a 6515 via a USB cable to a computer and have the dam thing install the correct drivers and software!  The printer/scanner install disk always defaults (with no option) to network or wifi connection.  I've sent hours explaining this predicament with Xerox support and I get no where, they just want to remote in and fix the issue.  With the way Covid has set up things, there is no rhyme or reason as to when the end user is at their computer. WHY is there no instructions that read "How to set up a 6515 via USB to a stand alone Win 10 computer and make it actually WORK with color duplex printing and scanning capability"  Someone please tell me the secret!!!

Re: Installing a WorkCentre 6515 as a stand alone USB printer/scanner

I did manage to get the Scan driver/app from Xerox installed, it uses the built in windows scanner and fax app.  Issue there is that it will not scan directly to a .pdf format.  And it doesn't scan all documents at one time to just one file.  So yes, the scanner works, no it doesn't work correctly.  One last thing to try is to get the Windows Scan app from MS store and see if that will help.

Same thing for the USB printer.  After getting the USB driver to install, it still would not do duplex printing. Finally I had to drill down to printer properities and get the duplex module change to "INSTALLED" then it would go to duplex printing.

Highly dissappointed on how much manual configuration has to take place for a really simple set up.  Too bad I bougtht into so many of these 6515 workstations.  

anyone else have any other ideas?
