After you have set up your device and connected it to your computer or network, you must install the printer software. The software required for Windows is supplied on the Software and Documentation CD delivered with your device.

Note: You also can install the printer drivers visiting the Xerox Drivers and Downloads Page.

Note: All applications should be closed on your PC before beginning installation.

The following software is available:

  • Print Driver: Use the print driver to take full advantage of your printer's features. PCL5e, PCL6, Postscript and XPS drivers are provided.
  • Xerox Easy Printer Manager (EPM): Conveniently combines access to device settings, printing environments, and launching applications such as Xerox CentreWare Internet Services in one location.
  • Xerox Easy Wireless Setup: When installing the printer you can use the wireless setup program that was automatically installed with the print driver to configure the wireless settings.

You can install the printer software for a local, networked or wireless printer using the Recommended or Custom method.
