Download Printer Driver from Transact Web Site
www.transact-tech.com
1.
First make sure your printer is powered on and connected to your PC. Then, download our Windows 8 driver for your
respective printer model by going to our Service & Support section on our website at http://www.transact-tech.com/serviceand-support, then click on your printer model, and under “Drivers” download the Windows Driver for “Windows Server
2003/2008, XP, Vista, 7, or 8 32-bit or 64-bit systems” at the top of the page.
Note: If you are installing a Series 50, Series 70, Series 80/80PLUS, Series 90/90 PLUS, or a Series 150 printer,
unfortunately we don’t have any Windows 8 drivers for these printers and don't plan on developing any since they are our
older printers. Instead you want to Install a Generic/Text Only driver, which is included in Windows 8, and will allow you to
print. Please skip the steps below if you have a Series 50, Series 70, Series 80/80PLUS, Series 90/90PLUS or Series 150
printer, and follow the instructions on the next page.

Select Use an existing port and select your port
from the drop down menu, and then click Next. If
you have a Parallel Printer select LPT1, if you have
a Serial Printer select COM1, and if you have a
USB Printer select the proper USB port.
ƒ
Note: In most cases if you have a USB printer, you
want to select USB001 as your port as this will be
the only USB port listed. If you have multiple USB
ports to choose from (USB002, USB003, etc.), run
our USBPortView.exe utility, which can be found in
the Utilities folder of our Windows driver. After you
run the utility, look for the USB port that has
“Transact” listed for the Manufacturer. So, for
example, if USB003 has “Transact” listed as the
Manufacturer, that is the port you will need to
choose in the Add Printer Wizard
ƒ
Note: If installing an Ethernet Printer, select
“Create a new port”, then select Standard TCP/IP
port for “Type of port”. You will need the IP address
to add the TCP/IP port.
