Bob, Thanks for the registry info; I typically do not feel very comfortable in the registry since I typically do not know what I am doing or understand what many of the entries mean or how they work. The main thrust of my remarks was that, even if both print drivers are installed as separate printers, you can ignore the ESCP/2 printer when it comes to choosing the printer to print from and select the Epson OEM driver driven printer; moreover, when it comes to networking, you can select the Epson OEM driver driven printer to be your network printer. The other printer will never install plug and play as a network printer unless you slect to share it nor appear on the network workstations or peer systems other than the one that it is actually attached to. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Bob Frost Sent: Wednesday, June 12, 2002 5:00 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Removing Epson EscP/2 basic drivers [was Re: Printer drivers on a networked computer] Laurie et al, For those of you who want to get rid of the basic XP drivers that get installed automatically with your Epson printers, you can do so by going to Hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows NT/currentversion/print/printers in the Registry where you will find entries for all your currently installed printers. For example, my 1270 shows up there twice - as an Epson Stylus Photo 1270 and as an Epson Stylus Photo 1270 EscP/2. If you simply delete the EscP/2 entry, this stops the basic printer showing up in the printers lists. It is still installed (because it doesn't get reinstalled when you reconnect your printer or reboot), but doesn't keep showing up as a printer when you print.
