Need Software for Dell Photo All-In-One Printer 926

This question is not answered

I need to install  the printer on my laptop also.  It's installed with my Desktop, which is my main, and I want to use it for my laptop also.  I don't have the disk that came with it though.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

    Please follow these instruction very carefully and let me know what happens.

     

     

    Make sure your computer has the latest Windows Updates, especially .net framework, needed to run many applications and the latest Java.

    Disconnect your printer.

     

    Download and run this patch to completely remove the printer from your computer. Run the patch(a MUST on Vista machines) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

     

    Restart your computer.

     

    Download the proper drivers.

     

    XP Drivers

     

    Vista 32-bit Drivers

     

    64-bit drivers

     

    All other drivers

      

     

    Install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect your printer(powered on). Please use a 4ft or smaller USB Cable.

     Sharing a printer through a wireless network

     

    As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.


    Or


    Try this FREE OCR Program.

     

    Scanning

     

    Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.

     

    Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.

  • Simon,

     

    Yes it's relly an easy thing to do.

     

    As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.

     

    After you install it, then open the program. Once the program is opened and I registered mine saying it was part of my Dell printer and then I get  either an email or I could update the program and it works fine with reading the characters.

     

    If you don't have th disk, then people have used Simple OCR

     

    Also make sure to...

     

    Update list of applications to send scans to

  • is there any place i can buy a replacement disk please

  • lmarcoz,

     

    All the drivers are available on Dell's website, except the OCR Program and fax program.

     

    For faxing, you can use BVRP PhoneTools for Faxing but need an OCR Program installed first.

     

    I have some OCR Options, if you click on the blue and on the next page, click on start conversation with. We can discuss it there.
