About the Printer Drivers
This section of the FreeFlow Accxes document provides you with the detailed instructions
required to download and install printer drivers, set up ports, add the Wide Format printer
to your client workstation (namely your personal computer) and send a test print.
You can find the driver installation files on the Driver Software or the Xerox web site at
www.xerox.com.
Getting Started
There are two options offered to you for connecting to a printer prior to submitting your
job. They are:
• Connecting from a Client (Windows 7, XP, Vista, 2003, 2008): This is most commonly
used and therefore more familiar to most users.
• Connecting through a Windows 2003 or 2008 server: This is done when your business
environment is a networked, shared community. The server has all of the drivers and
allows many users to connect and install the appropriate driver from that server.
Drivers
Installing Drivers Locally on a Server or Client
A Windows 2003 or 2008 server system can have all of the drivers that the workstations
require installed locally on the server. Each workstation can then install the appropriate
driver from the server to make remote drivers.
These instructions describe how to install the printer driver locally on a workstation or
server.
To install a printer driver on a workstation from a server, see Installing Remote Drivers
on a Client in this document. The printer driver must be installed on the server locally
first, according to the following instructions.

About the Printer Drivers
NOTE
Deleting the Microsoft XPS Document Writer Printer could hang WF Printer Drivers
and cause printing problems with all Wide Format printers.
The FreeFlow Accxes printer driver is delivered on your Driver Software CD or can be
downloaded from www.xerox.com as a self-extracting zip file. Executing this program
extracts the files to a default directory or to a directory of the user’s choice, such as
c:\temp).
NOTE
You must have administrator rights to install the driver and ports.
NOTE
Changes to the Enable Advanced Printing Feature checkbox are shared between
Clients and Remote Printers. Therefore, all clients and remote printers sharing the
driver from that server inherit the advanced printing settings.
HP-GL/2 or PostScript Driver Installation
1. Insert the CD.
2. Double-click the Drivers folder.
3. Double-click the XFAInstaller.exe.

Select Next.
The Ready to install page opens.
10. Select Finish to complete the driver installation.
The Copying files screen displays.

FreeFlow Accxes Client
Tools and Account
Management Tool

This chapter describes the installation of the FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools and the
FreeFlow Account Management Tool products.
• The FreeFlow ACT and the AMT software are installed during the same installation
process.
• The installation can be done from the Accxes Client Tools and Account Management
Tool CD, or from the www.xerox.com website.
• Go to the latest copy of the Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server Customer Release
Notes for your product to see additional descriptive information of the ACT and AMT
features beyond what is in this chapter. The Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server
Customer Release Notes can be found on the Accxes Client Tools and Account
Management Tool CD.
Overview of ACT
The ACT application runs on a Windows Client, MacOS X, Solaris or GNU/Linux
workstation.
ACT enables users to:
• Send print jobs from their client
• Retrieve scanned files from over the network
• Save images
• Create document sets from single documents
• View the printer queue from your client
• Cancel submitted jobs
• View Scan Directory

FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools and Account Management Tool
• Temporarily change printer settings
NOTE
Selections made in the Client Tools temporarily override the default settings of the
FreeFlow Accxes Wide Format printers.
Each Client Tool is on a separate tab:
• Document Submit
• Printer Queue
• Accounting (Legacy)
• Document Retrieve
• Device Manager
NOTE
The Accounting tab listed above is functional only for software version up to 6.2.
Beyond 6.2 the function was replaced by an external client, such as the FreeFlow
Accxes Account Management Tool.
NOTE
After the installation is complete, go to the Overview and Quick Start Help files to
get started using the software.
Overview of the Account Management
Tool
The AMT application is designed to:
• Retrieve job accounting data from multiple printers that use FreeFlow Accxes firmware
(version 6.2 or greater).
• The AMT Administrator can submit an AMT command to each printer to retrieve a
copy of the media usage data and scanner usage data-located in the job log file on
the printer’s controller.
• Identify the data retrieved by Printer ID, Account ID and User ID.
• The AMT then sends a command to each printer to purge the original data.
CAUTION
The AMT software should be loaded on only one workstation that is password
protected.

Select the menu key followed by the BACK or NEXT keys to the Network Setup option.
Prerequisite to the Installation of the
ACT and AMT
A clean installation using the Control Panel Add or Remove Programs function is required
for these software products.
NOTE
The XES Preferences folder was created while the ACT and AMT applications were
in use. The uninstaller for ACT and AMT does not remove this folder automatically.
This is not necessary if you are performing a reinstallation of your software, but if
you are not going to run the software on a system anymore or if you are deleting
the preferences and scanned images to save space, delete the XES Preferences
directory.
The following table describes the location of the XES Preferences directory by platform,
if ACT and AMT were previously installed.

Type of Platform
Location of XES Preferences Directory
Windows 7

Mac OS X
<home directory>/.XES/ACT
GNU/Linux
<home directory>/.XES/ACT
Windows 2008/Vista
C:\USERS\<username>\XES\ACT
Removal of the directory results in the loss of all ACT user device settings.
CAUTION
It is important to do a manual backup of the AMT database files on a regular basis.
If you accidentally corrupt or delete the saved files, they cannot be recovered. The
files you back up need to be copied back into the AMT database folder if required.
Uninstalling the AMT software does not delete the saved database files. Files, images,
data, user preferences, etc., created by the user or application are not deleted accidentally.
Refer to the Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server Customer Release Notes on
www.xerox.com for the Vista location of database files.
