    Win ME/HP2200Dt

    I bought a HP2200DT for a great price from a company going out of business. Now, I want to install it as a local printer using WinME. I don't have the 2200 as an install option, on the Print Wizard (gets to 1200) and the Print Wizard looks for "finstall.dll" and cannot find the file, so I cannot continue.

    Obviously, I don't have the installation disk.

    Any thoughts?

    I think that I have the newest drivers unzipped. Going through the Print Wizard doesn't work - still looking for that same file. Any thoughts on getting the system to look for drivers at startup? Is there a way to shut down the system and then have it detect the new printer - the system already did that once, but I may not have had the drivers available, and I'd like to try that route again.

    Hope this makes sense - thanks!

    Have you tried this.........

    When the Wizard gets to the driver selection window, click "Have Disk..." and enter the path to the unzipped driver. eg: C:Temp
    .......Or copy the unzipped driver to a floppy disk, insert the disk in the drive, and direct the wizard to A:

    Have a Great day!!!
