No drivers available for Canon printer?

By qualitygjp ·
I have a bunch of Canon LBP 465 printers on site. Recently upgraded to W98 and of course printers no longer work. Canon says Microsoft wrote original drivers for the W95 version but will no longer support the printers. Canon also has no plans to write drivers. Great! Thousands of Canon printers suddenly became obsolete. Any one else writing drivers for these dinosaurs?

No drivers available for Canon printer?

by techrepublic In reply to No drivers available for ...

I have the driver for the Canon LBP465. The filename is canon465.zip (Size: 3184968 bytes) for Windows 95 & Windows 98. I have posted it at: http://www.activenets.com/data/canon465.zip I will leave it posted for a week to allow you time to download the file. As with all drivers I cannot guarantee it will work in your situation, but I see no reason it will not. I hope you find this helpful!

If that driver does not work, there are drivers for the LBP 465 at www.driversguide.com (free registration is required). This is an excellent site for many older drivers. Hope this helps

I agree that driverguide is an excellent resource. FYI, the file on driverguide is identical to the file I posted for you. Take your pick!
