Installing the Printer Driver
Step 8
Install the printer driver to control the printer from your computer.
You can install the printer driver for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows
NT 4.0, Windows 3.1 or MS-DOS from the Printer Driver CD-ROM.
Follow the instructions below and for more details, see the User’s Manual
that came with your printer.
Windows 95/98
We recommend that the printer driver be installed using the CD-ROM’s
installer. If the driver is installed using plug-and-play, the Driver directory on the
CD-ROM must be specified.
Note
• When the printer driver is installed using plug-and-play, the Status Display,
the Control Panel, the uninstall.exe file, and the Driver Help will not be installed.
Installing from the CD-ROM (Auto Run)
1. Turn on your computer and start up Windows 95 or Windows 98.
2. Insert the Printer Driver CD-ROM into your computer’s CD-ROM drive.
3. The opening screen is automatically displayed. Click on the PCL Driver
menu to start the installer.
Note
• The configuration of some computers may prevent the opening screen from
appearing automatically. If the screen does not appear, double-click Install.exe from the CD-ROM.
• The printer driver must be installed using the CD-ROM’s installer. Do not
use the Add Printer wizard from the Printers folder. Installation through the
Add Printer wizard will prevent the printer from performing properly.
• Do not check Jogging Tray when it appears in the installation dialog for
registering additional options. This printer does not support jogging tray
compatibility.
After installing the printer driver, the Minolta PageWorks/Pro 18 printer
icon appears in the Printers folder.

In this example, we will assume that D: is the name of the CD-ROM drive.
3. The opening screen is automatically displayed. Click on the PCL Driver
menu to start the installer.
Note
• The configuration of some computers may prevent the opening screen
from appearing automatically. If the screen does not appear, double-click
Install.exe from the CD-ROM.
• The printer driver must be installed using the CD-ROM’s installer. Do not
use the Add Printer wizard from the Printers folder.
