I have recently come into possession of a PE 120i and have been trying to find drivers that will run on windows 10. Tried to use an older PCL6 driver, but there is no setup or install app. The only ,exe files do nothing and windows does not see that it is connected. Any suggestions?
The drivers are a decade old, there is no setup file, you install it manually, and in Windows 10 you cannot just install an XP driver, you will need to disable Signature Enforcement to even try to install it.
When you plug a USB device into Windows it should ask to install it, and at that point you would have to point it to the driver extracted from the Xerox.com driver.
If you let it install without manually taking over, it will show up in Windows Device manager, probably as an unknown device (Caution sign on it), you would need to update the driver there.
It only comes up as a USB composite device, but will not accept the drivers I have. Just says that windows determined that the current drivers were the best ones.
It seems silly to me that I can find this same printer online and is supposed to be new, but there are no windows 10 drivers.
It's been out of development since 2013, it is far from new and hasn't been sold by Xerox in a very long time.
You don't need to take Windows word on the "best driver", just select Browse my computer for driver software
<Screenshots show correct option and the wrong device and type, but that changes nothing in the steps>
Then Let me pick
Choose Have disk and pick the driver manually, if you did the Signature verification thing above, this will work.
