Chapter 1:
Installing
User Software
on a Windows
Computer
This chapter describes the procedures for installing software and
setting up printing from a computer using a supported version of
Windows (Windows 98/Me, NT 4.0, 2000, XP or Server 2003).
The general steps for installing the software are as follows:
• Install the PostScript printer driver or PCL printer driver and
corresponding printer driver files and set up the printer driver to
communicate with the Sharp AR-C360P.
• Install Fiery utilities and user software—EFI Fiery Mail Port, Fiery
Remote Scan, Fiery Downloader, Fiery Printer Delete Utility,
ColorWise Pro Tools, and Command WorkStation.
Note: If the computer is not intended to be used by the Sharp AR-
C360P administrator, Command WorkStation may not be required.
• Configure the connection for Fiery utilities and user software.
• Copy additional files from CD1 as required.

1-17 Setting up PostScript or PCL printing with Windows 98/Me
Setting up PostScript or PCL printing with
Windows 98/Me
To set up the Fiery as a PostScript or PCL printer, you must install
the PostScript or PCL printer driver for Windows 98/Me and, for
PostScript, the corresponding printer description file. You must
also configure either a local connection for printing directly or a
network connection for printing over the network.
If you are printing using SMB (Server Message Block), you can
connect to the Fiery and install the printer drivers in a single
procedure. For more information, see “Setting up SMB printing
with Windows 98/Me” on page 1-29.
Note: The procedures for setting up printing with the PostScript
and PCL printer drivers are similar. Either can, and should, be
installed using the Installer program on CD1 supplied with the
Sharp AR-C360P.
Installing the PostScript or PCL printer driver for
Windows 98/Me
The following procedure describes installing the printer driver
from CD1. Subsequent procedures describe configuring installable
options and setting up the printer connection.
Note: It is strongly recommended that you use the supplied
Drivers CD (CD1) to install the printer drivers. This will
automatically also install the Sharp LPR utility, which greatly
simplifies network connection to the printer over a TCP/IP
connection. If you choose to use the standard Windows Add
Printer Wizard, you will need to install this utility from the CD
afterwards if you require these features.
To install the PostScript or PCL printer driver
for Windows 98/Me
1.
Insert CD1 into your CD drive and wait for the CD to autorun the setup
program.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI User’s Software Installation Guide - 17

1-18 Installing User Software on a Windows Computer
If the CD does not autorun navigate to the CD root directory and
double-click the setup.exe program to start the installer.
2.
Choose your preferred language for the installer.
3.
From the next screens after accepting the licensing agreement, follow the
on-screen instructions to complete the driver installation.
You can run this procedure twice if you want more than one driver
installed. For example, if you want the EFI PostScript driver and
the PCL driver run the procedure once for each driver and choose
the required driver each time. Choose a name for the installed
driver that will indicate which driver and printer it is for.
For networked printers the installer will also install the Sharp LPR
program, which makes connecting the printer over TCP/IP
networks easy, and the Network Extension, which enables the
driver to query the printer and automatically enable any optional
hardware installed on it.

Installing Fiery utilities
From the CD2, you can install the following Fiery utilities and
user software:
• ColorWise Pro Tools
• Fiery Downloader
• EFI Fiery Mail Port (see “Installing EFI Fiery Mail Port” on
page 1-59)
• Command WorkStation
• Fiery Remote Scan
The Fiery utilities must be separately installed on each user’s
computer. The installation of each utility is similar. Before you
begin each installation, determine where you want to install each
item on your hard disk. Otherwise, the software is placed by
default in the Fiery folder inside the Programs folder. The
Command WorkStation installer also installs the Java files
necessary to use Fiery Setup from Command WorkStation.
Note: To install software, you must have Service Pack 4 installed
on a Windows 2000 computer and Service Pack 1 installed on
Windows XP. If not, a warning message alerts you to install the
correct service pack.
To use Fiery software (Command WorkStation and ColorWise Pro
Tools) as well as WebTools on a Windows computer, you must
install the Sun Java file, Java Runtime Environment (JRE),
provided in the CommonUtl folder on the User Software CD. If the
Sun Java file is not installed, you are prompted to install it before
you proceed to install Fiery software. For more information on
installing Java Runtime Environment (JRE), see “To install Sun
Java on your computer” on page 1-66. For more information on
WebTools, see the Job Management Guide and the Printing Guide.

On a Windows computer
This chapter provides troubleshooting tips.
On a Windows computer
Setting up printing on Windows NT 4.0
or Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 computers
If you have problems installing the Sharp AR-C360P with
Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003, try installing
another PostScript printer (such as the Apple LaserWriter IIg),
and then install the Sharp AR-C360P. Installing another printer
ensures that all files are properly installed and available. For
instructions, see your Windows documentation.
For information about problems you may encounter using the
PostScript Printer Driver for Windows NT 4.0, see the Fiery Driver
help file (EF8x3324.chm) included in \Drivers\English\nt40\ps on
the Drivers CD (CD1). For Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003, see
your Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 documentation.
Reinstalling the Adobe PostScript Printer Driver
on Windows 98/Me
If you are reinstalling the Adobe PostScript Printer Driver, delete
any previous versions and related files before installation.
For additional information about problems you may encounter
using the Adobe Printer Driver for Windows 98/Me, see the Fiery
Driver help file (EF8x3324.chm) included in
\Drivers\English\w9x\ps on the Drivers CD (CD1).

printer description file, select the appropriate Fiery file in your
System :Extensions :Printer Descriptions folder.
Installing screen fonts
If you experience problems installing the PostScript screen fonts
from CD1 to the System folder : Fonts folder, try the following:
1.
Quit all applications and close all windows.
2.
Create a new folder and name it “Uninstalled Fonts.”
This folder must be located outside the System folder.
3.
Move fonts you are not using from the System folder : Fonts folder to the
Uninstalled Fonts folder.
4.
Install the fonts from CD1 to a folder called CD fonts. Copy the fonts to
the System folder : Fonts folder.
5.
Create aliases to the System folder : Fonts folder and the Uninstalled
Fonts folder.
6.
Place both aliases on your desktop.

7.
Troubleshooting
When necessary, use the aliases to open both folders and move fonts
between them.
If you have any applications running, you must quit and restart
them in order to view and use the newly installed fonts.
You can also try combining fonts from multiple suitcases into a
single suitcase.
