Yes I did set up the port manually the same way I did under Windows XP & Windows 7. Instead of the options shown in your picture, mine are as shown below:
When I tried it without checking the LPR Byte Counting Enabled box as in your example, I get a brief "Error - Printing" message in the Status of the printer dialog box, but still nothing prints.
Any other suggestions?
The only difference in Windows 10 for printing is that no matter what you do, if you don't manually create the port and instead pick it from the list of printers it "discovers", no matter what you do later the port will get converted to a WSD port and stop working, and most likely, whatever driver you want to use will get replaced by the "Xerox MS Class driver"
So manually create the port during install and make it identical to how it is here:
I have upgraded to Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, and struggling to get our Xerox 6204 up and running. I have upgraded to newer systems over the years, to Windows 7 64 bit most recently without any difficulties by following the standard installation instructions. Everything seemed to install correctly including the new port, and drivers (after going through the "Disable Driver Signature Verification" for Windows 10). Bottom line is when printing from Adobe Acrobat, the file is sent to the spooler without any problem, but the printer Status just says "Printer Busy or Error" and gets stuck there. No action on the printer end.
We also have an older Xerox 8825 which installed quickly and perfectly without any problems and is working great.
I can access the 6204 by way of the IP address without any problem, and can see jobs coming and going through that web portal.
For Windows 10, is there some tweaking that needs to be done with the Port Settings (instead of Standard TCP/IP, LPR, LPT00t, LPR Byte Counting Enabled), or Advanced settings? I've tried changing everything - Print directly to the printer, and different other advanced options.
We're 200 miles away from any support center, so any help is greatly appreciated!
