Well, the USB drivers appear to be fine, the printer is showing up in the Printer folder, and is printing to the correct USB port etc. Epson tech help said it was a operating system issue....
When I print from Office, it tells me the program has performed an illegal operation and shuts the program down, and when I try to print a test page, I get the rundll32 general protection fault and then it shuts the test print down.
Anyone have a fix for this problem?? other than installing a new Operating system?
Thanks so much for the help... planning on posting a review as well as a guide for the next person with Win98SE so they can avoid these problems.
