Chapter 1 Overview
Overview
Introduction
Advanced Printer Driver (hereafter called APD) is a Windows printer driver for EPSON TM printers and Customer Displays. You can display the Customer Display using the same operation as printing.
APD can monitor the status of the TM printer with Status API for use of POS embedded. However, the Customer Display is not supported.
The APD environment that is already set up can be restored (silent install) on another computer.
The printers locally connected to the computers can be used as shared printers (Point & Print), by using network function of the OS.
Package organization
The APD consists of the following packages.
APD installer (APD_4xxE.exe)
A package to install the APD.
Manual/Sample installer (APDMANE_x.exe)
A package to install APD manuals (PDF) and sample programs using the APD.

Interfaces only for the Customer Display or Drawer can be mounted on some TM printer models.
For information on the interfaces available on your TM printers, ask your sales representative. Application
The APD supports direct printing from the Windows applications. No programming is required for printing directly from commercial applications, such as word processing or spread sheet. When you want to receive TM printer statuses such as paper out errors at your application, use the Status API. In this case, you need to develop the applications to incorporate the monitoring function. 11

Restrictions
• When using the printer driver for EPSON Terminal Printers (laser printer, ink‐jet printer and others) or EPSON printer window together with the APD, installation and uninstallation must be performed in the following order:
[Installation]
1. EPSON Terminal Printer driver
2. APD
[Uninstallation]
1. APD
2. EPSON Terminal Printer driver
If you want to overwrite the EPSON Terminal Printer driver after the APD is installed, uninstall the APD first and then overwrite the EPSON Terminal Printer driver. • For a USB connection, the printer driver can be installed by Plug and Play after installing the APD; however, the printer driver cannot be added when the TM printer is offline (cover open, paper out, and so on.) When the printer recovers from the offline status, it will be added.
• The maximum number of printers that can be connected simultaneously through a USB connection is 8.
• When a Parallel interface TM printer is connected to Windows XP, a Plug and Play request window pops up and ʺEPSON TM‐P2.01ʺ is added in Other devices of the Device manager. Do not perform [Uninstall] or [Update Driver Software] for this device. When a Parallel interface TM printer is connected to the computer prior to the driver installation, the computer detects ʺEPSON TM‐P2.01ʺ, but you should not uninstall or update, just click [Cancel]. (It is added to Other device in the Device manager, and deleted when the driver is installed.) 
When you connect a TM printer with parallel interface before installing the driver, ʺEPSON‐
P2.01ʺ is detected. In such case, just click ʺCancelʺ and not select ʺUninstallʺ or ʺUpdate Driver Softwareʺ. (It is added to ʺOther deviceʺ in the Device manager, however, automatically deleted after the driver is installed.)

The uninstallation procedure (page 36) and various maintenance procedures after installation (page 61) are also provided. The APD of version 4.07 or later supports 32 bit and 64 bit version OS.
 Install with Administrator privileges.
 Do not connect the TM printer, until installation of the APD completes.
 Close all running applications before the installation.
Notes on upgrading from APD 2.xx, 3.xx
APD 2.xx or 3.xx needs to be uninstalled in order to install APD 4.xx. Keep in mind the following points.
• When you install APD 4.xx to a computer on which APD 2.xx or 3.xx has been installed, the previous version is automatically uninstalled before the installation of APD 4.xx.
• Some printers do not support APD 4.xx. Make sure that your printer supports APD 4.xx. If you are using such printer and install APD 4.xx, the printer becomes unusable on your system.
Compatibility between APD 4.5xx or later and other driver/utility
When you install APD 4.5xx or later, the driver/utility of versions earlier than those shown below become disabled. The shared printer also becomes disabled after accessed from a client computer. Compatible driver/utility must be separately prepared and upgraded by the user. For the upgrading procedure, refer to the manual for each driver/utility.
Other driver/utility

When using wireless LAN connection, check the IP address setting. To configure the IP address, use the Epson TM Netwingconfig Utility. Also check the security measures and location sufficiently. For details, see the ʺUB‐R02/R03 Technical Reference Guide.ʺ
USB connection
Do not connect the TM printer to the computer before installing the APD. In case you connect the TM printer first, delete the port drivers and reinstall the printer drivers without connecting the TM printer. USB device requirements
 Maximum USB cable length is 5m, and 5 cascaded hubs maximum.
 Use the USB cable and the USB hubs compliant with USB2.0 specification (12Mbps).
For USB power saving, see the C:\Program Files\EPSON\EPSON Advanced Printer Driver

Shared Printer
APD4 supports shared printer (Point&Print). This section describes how to install a shared printer into a client computer.
The uninstallation procedure is also provided.
When you install both 32 bit and 64 bit printer drivers on a server, the shared printer
environment can be provided for clients using 32 bit and 64 bit version OS.
For example, if the 32 bit driver is prepared on a 64 bit server, the server can provide the
driver for 32 bit clients.
Installation
Before installing the printer to be shared, check the followings. • Make sure the printer for the server is set for sharing.
• If Epson driver/utility is installed on a client computer, check the version.

Chapter 3 Silent Installation
Silent Installation
This chapter describes the procedures for the Silent Installation. What Is a Silent Installation?
The silent installation is a method that copies the existing APD setup environment to other
computers without user operation. There are the following two methods.
❏ Using a silent installation package (*.exe)
Create the silent installation package on the copy source computer.
 Executing this file on another computer enables you to install the minimum environment for operating the APD from all the environment of the copy source computer.
 When the silent installation is executed with this file, you cannot create the silent installation package or the script file for the silent installation, or add another printer.
❏ Using a script file (*.inf) for the silent installation
Create the script file for the silent installation on the copy source computer.
 Executing this file and the APD file (APD_4xxE.exe) on another computer enables you to install the complete APD environment of the copy source computer.
 In the environment in which the silent installation is executed with this file, you can create the silent installation package or the script file for the silent installation, and you can also add another printer.
With this function, you can incorporate the APD installation into a batch file, a recovery disc for the OS, and an installer of an application.
Also, you can add the command options for the silent installation to enable the following functions.
 Notification when completing the installation
 Restart setting after completing the installation
 Upgrade installation settings
 Installing without displaying screens.
 To use the silent installation, Internet Explorer version 4.0 or later is required.
 When APD3 or APD4 have been already installed in the target computers, uninstall
those before the silent installation.
This method is useful especially in the following cases:
 You can make the same setting to multiple computers easily.
 Even computers with no displays can be set up.
 In case of printing trouble, the APD environment of the computer with an error can be recreated on another computer by using the script file for the silent installation of that computer, and it improves the service and maintenance function. (In the environment in which the silent installation is executed with the silent installation package, the script file for the silent installation cannot be created.)
