Hello there.

This means the User you are logged in as does not have Administrative Privileges. Without them, the system will not allow hardware changes or additions.

  • 'Limited' is probably marked. Click the administrator button. and save.
  • \015\012

If this doesn't work
\015\012
    \015\012
  • Under the names, find one that says Computer Administrator.
  • \015\012
  • Log in under this name. You're on you own with the password
  • \015\012
  • Retry the install
If you continue to have problems, get back to me with model #'s details, etc.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate.

Log off the computer or restart the computer and login with administrator account and password to install it successfully.

\015\012If you don't have an administarator account then reboot the system in safe mode and login with administrator account and make a account which has admin rights.
\015\012
\015\012An administrator account user can only install the printer drivers or software.
