    hi, Dear friend

    It might compatible issue .... So, try to install them in these manner

    First of all insert the Canon Companion DISC in to the ROM

    And now open the DRIVE ...and right click on Setup.exe file ...and choose TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY

    then click on Try RECOMMENDED SETTINGS option


    NOW click the START PROGRAM button.........and follow the instructions


    after the completion of installation ...... click NEXT button from the program compatibility window


    after choose SAVE THESE settings for this program option ....and then close the Trouble shooter

    And if you are unable to .....Run the drivers ....simply download Latest Drivers from the CANON official Website ......and install them with the general procedure
    After that it will be solved

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Unable to run Canon Printer drivers on Windows 7 System.

    The reason why the driver is refusing to get installed is simple.The driver was installed in Windows XP that means it was created way back for an old version of Windows which you are trying to install in newer Windows 7. This is for your information not all programs run on All Version of Windows. This fharacter is called compatibility.Windows 7 will allow Only those programs to be installed which are compatible to itself, and your Printer driver is not.Log into www.canon.com, search the Drivers Section, find a driver for your Printer Model, which is Windows 7 compatible, Download and install and it will get installed without any issue.Try . That . Method .

    Hello Freind,

    Well, it seems to me there is some compatibility issue with your Printer software and windows 7 system. Wndows 7 is c omparatively new OS so you have to update your Canon printer software. You have to visit the cannon website and based on your printer model download the latest version of driver compatible with Windows 7 OS. Then install the driver and there will be no probelm. For future use you can write the driver to a blank CD or DVD. Compatibility is a common issue so you don't have to worry too much.

    bye,

    Hi Dear,

    The problem your saying is about incompatibility.

    The drivers which your trying to install are older version which does not compatible/supported by Windows7.

    So, Download the latest version Drivers of your Canon Printer which is compatible with Windows7.

    Install them and restart the system.

    Your problem is solved.

    You are unable to install canon printer driver in your new pc with windows 7.

    Earlier the same driver was working in windows XP.

    But now you are unable to work with same driver.

    So the mistake is with drivers.

    The driver which was working in windows xp was compitable for windows xp.

    Now for windows 7 you have to download new compaitable driver from official website of cannon which is for the printer model which you use.

    Install it and your printer will work.

    Hi..

    Check cannon printer drivers already installed or not..

    If previous you installed canon printer drivers ..

    Then need to uninstall all canon printer drivers and Delete other all printer devices

    Make default printer as canon..

    Now install drvers ..

    Sure it will work..

    Thank you
