Sorry for delay in replying. I did click on your suggested link but it resulted in a reply - this does not work on your machine. There was a suggestion that I search the My Store tile to see if there was anything there to cover thet matter but I did search but nothing particular was there.

What was the exact and entire error message? That driver is for windows 8 32bit so it should install properly as windows 8 and 8.1 use the same drivers.

Dear Freddy


 


I tried reloading my machine from that which you sent me and it seemed to load this time. I had the setting as 'run' before so this time I tried 'save' and therre seemed to appear a line showing loading, I think, but I cant find where it went. If it did load, what should I do now to make it functional please?

If you chose save it would have only saved the downloaded file and would not have installed it. What internet browser are you using? With that I can tell you how to look at the saved downloads.

My Internet browser is Internet Explorer 11 on windows 8.1

Click the gear icon on the top right corner.
Then click on view downloads in the list, the newest one should be it, you would want to double click on it.

I am still in trouble. I downloaded the programme which came after I clicked your attachment and the programme took 15 Minutes to down load. The serial number of the programme was 377487 Eu.exe. and frro m memory was sized as 1.4Mg


 


I tried to bring it up for clicking on to load but when I went top to the top right hand corner there was only a 'search' sign ands nothing else . I tried searching for the latest downloads but nothing of the date came up.. I then clicked run on the programme and the message was:


"This app can't run on this machine. To find apps for this PC open the windows store file."


 


So What now and if the wrong app how do I delete it please

That is the correct one and the gear icon is on the top right corner in internet explorer right below the red X. You can also hold down Ctrl and while holding it down tap J to open the downloads. That file 377487 Eu.exe you need to run just downloading it is not enough. Double click on it to run it.

At last I have got the file (actually 3 extra copies of it) by ctrol+J - I double clicked it and managed to get it to display as a tile on the start display. How do I get it to work the Epson printer and also to get it into the Epson tile on the start page? I shall delete the extra copies later?

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.

It should not go to the start display at all. Show it using CTRL+J again then right click on it. Choose open in the right click menu.

I have been trying to move the app to 'open' as you instructed but it didn't go there, the answer came up with 'this app cant run on this PC. to find apps for this machine open windows store' I've tried double clicking but the same answer. Is there any trick which would shift it to open?

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.
.
It should run lets try tricking it into running.
Right click on it and click on properties.

At the top click on the compatibility tab.
Put a check in the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" box and choose windows 8 or Windows 7 from the box below that.

Click on apply and the on ok.
Right click it again and click on run as administrator even if you are one.

I opened the properties tab but found no tab for 'compatability' although I searched through the other tabs on the properties mode as well. The headings for tabs were:-


General


Digital signatures


Security

That is odd it should have one like this:


We can try to do it a different way:

Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search.)

Enter run programs in the search box.

Tap or click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows, and then tap or click Next.
Choose the downloaded installer.
