So after finishing the printer this week I started on the “using the printer” part of the manual. Everything seems to go fine but it seems the printer won’t automatically install on my laptop as described below (from the manual):
[quote=“Manual”]After installing this driver you can connect the USB cable with a free USB port on your computer (do not connect the power cable of the printer, we will do this in a later stadium). And follow the steps for your operating system:
PC (WIN 7)
The PC will continue and install the driver for the printer and you will have to check the number of the COM port to use in the configuration of Repetier later.[/quote]
So as highlighted my PC won’t continue and install the driver for the printer. I’ve looked for a software download but can’t find any.
- I do see the printer as a COM port
- I am albe to connect with Repetier, I don’t get the firmware response though.
- I do have those nice shiny leds both on at the printerboard.
I hope anyone of you has a clue, and thank you already for the responses.
