Hi, I have an Epson Stylus PX710W printer that loaded fine with Windows XP systems in the house. However, a new computer with Windows 7 can't seem to relate to the printer through a wireless connection. When I install the Epson with their installation CD, it all loads in (from what I can tell). Then it comes time to make the wireless connection....and it fails, saying: "Some files necessary for setup are not installed. Run setup again from the software CD-ROM" This same CD worked okay on the WinXP computers. I even went to Epson's site and downloaded their recommended drivers for the Scan and main. And, I'm able to use the printer on the Win7 computer if I do use a USB cable. So I don't know why I get the message about certain setup files are not installed?? Any ideas? Thank you!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Try completely uninstalling the drivers & apps from the Windows 7 system reboot and reinstall it.
It may not connect wirelessly if during the installation it was told to use a USB connection.

Just a thought.
In the beginning there was the command line.
