>From what I have been able to tell, the printer drivers are separate and distinct files from the status monitor files; I believe that there are Win 2000 versions of both files available on the web site which can be installed for Windows XP and will work. However, you have to follow the instructions pretty closely for installation of the files, which are found as HTML files on the Epson web site. I also believe that you miust install the printer driver for Win 2000 before you can install the status monitor files. I also believe you cannot install the Win 2000 status monitor file with the printer driver for the Epson printers that comes with and is supplied by Microsoft as part of Win XP; if you do install the Microsoft WinXP printer driver for the Espon printer the status monitor files will not install properly or run as it should. I am running the Win 2000 Epson printer and status monitor drivers on my Win XP Home Edition machine for an Epson 1200 without any problems; and they function the same as the old Win 98 drivers did giving me all the same options. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Michael Alexenko Sent: Thursday, April 04, 2002 9:24 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Re:Stylus Photo 1200/Win XP/ status monitor 2 question I'm in a similar bind; I have a 3000 I'd like to use on my new XP system, but: 1) the "standard" MS 3000 driver is limites and doesn't have the status monitor 2) Epson doesn't have an XP driver at all for the 3000 3) The Epson driver for Windows 2000 works, but it doesn't seem to have a status monitor either.

(I have a Photo 750 of similar vintage) Compatibility mode is no help, either. I run the 750 off a networked win 98SE box, though you might want to ask yourself what you're missing not having Status Monitor. If you have backup carts, or a CIS, the lack of Stat Mon is no biggie to me, anyway. What I miss is access in the driver to higher res, more paper types, etc. > I'd like to hear differently...
