Note:
This printer driver cannot be used to print on a print server from a
client machine running an operating system other than the above.

4. Installation Method
 
This printer driver is designed to be installed under Windows 2000.

To install the printer driver, it is recommended you use the BJ Printer
Driver Installer rather than installing the driver with the [Found New
Hardware] Wizard. When the [Found New Hardware] Wizard starts, click
[Cancel] to stop it.

To install using the BJ Printer Driver Installer, follow the procedure
below.

Note:

- Before starting installation, see your printer manual for details on
  connecting your printer to your computer.

- If you have an earlier version of the printer driver installed on your
  computer, you must remove it with the uninstaller before installing
  the new driver. Note, however, that when you do this, you will lose
  any printing profiles you have created. Therefore, before deleting the
  old driver, you should make a note of your printing profile data so
  you can reenter it after installing the new driver.

- You must have full-control access to printer settings to carry out an
  installation.

  1) Make sure your printer is unplugged (powered off).

     Note:
     If the printer is on, the Windows Plug and Play feature's [Found
     New Hardware] Wizard will automatically appear when you start your
     computer. If this happens, click [Cancel].

  2) Log on to Windows 2000 as a member of the [Administrators] group.

  3) Close any applications that are running.  

  4) If you have a CD-ROM setup disk, load the CD-ROM into your
     computer's CD-ROM drive.

     Alternatively, if you've downloaded the setup software from a Canon
     web site, do this:

     1) Decompress the downloaded file into a temporary folder.
     2) Open the temporary folder and double-click Setup.exe.

     The BJ Printer Driver Installer starts.

  5) On the [Welcome] screen click [Next].

  6) Read the [License Agreement] and if you agree to it click [Yes].

     Note:
     If a message dialogue box appears telling you the driver is already
     installed and asking if you want to continue, click [Yes].

  7) If you're installing from CD-ROM, click the Start button on the
     main Installer screen to start the file copying process.

     If you're installing from a downloaded installer, file copying
     starts immediately.

     Note:
     If a digital signature confirmation dialogue box opens, click [Yes].

  8) When the [Printer Port] dialogue box appears, make sure the printer
     cable is properly connected to both your printer and computer, then
     plug the power cable in to turn your printer on.

     Note:
     - If you want to select the printer port yourself, click [Manual
       selection], select the port in the [Select port] dialogue box,
       and click [Next].
     - If automatic port detection fails, make sure the printer cable
       really is properly connected to both your printer and computer,
       then turn your printer on. Alternatively, click [Manual
       selection] and select the port in the [Select port] dialogue box
       and click [Next].

  9) When the [Installation Complete] screen appears click [Finish].

Note:
In certain cases, a Windows 2000 printer driver provided by Microsoft
will already be installed on your computer. However, it is recommended
that you use a Canon driver. If you see a printer name of the form
"Canon Bubble-Jet BJXXXX" in your [Printers] folder, a Microsoft
driver has been installed.

========================================================================
Specifying Printer Driver Settings
========================================================================

1. Opening the Printer Driver Dialogue Box

  - Opening from your application
    A typical way to open the printer driver from your application is to
    select [File]-[Page Setup] and click [Printer], or select [File]-
    [Print...] and click [Properties].

  - Opening directly
    To specify a regularly-used setup or to access your printer's
    maintenance functions, use the procedure below. Don't try to use the
    maintenance functions while printing.

    1) Select [Start]-[Settings]-[Printers].
    2) In the [Printers] folder, click the icon for your printer.
    3) From the [File] menu select [Printing Preferences].

2. Dialogue Box Tabs

The printer driver dialogue box is organised into five tabs, as follows:

  - [Main] tab
    Specifies what BJ Cartridge is installed and what media is loaded.
    With this tab you can specify the ink and paper you're using.

  - [Page Setup] tab
    Specifies [Orientation], [Page Size], [Scaling], and related
    settings.

  - [Effects] tab
    Specifies optional effects for altering or enhancing printed images.

  - [Profiles] tab
    Lets you save the settings on the [Main], [Page Setup] and [Effects]
    tabs. Settings you use regularly can be saved and restored. You can
    also delete unwanted saved settings.

  - [Maintenance] tab
    Executes print head cleaning, test printing, and other printer-
    maintenance-related functions.

    Note:
    To get information on any dialogue box item, use the online help.
    Click [?] at the top right of the box, then click the item to get an
    explanation. To get help on an entire tab, click the Help button at
    the bottom of the dialogue box. For help on using [Help], press [F1]
    when the [Help] window opens.

3. Using the Printer Driver

When printing something with this printer driver, restrictions on what
you can do sometimes apply. Keep the following points in mind when
printing:

  - If you cancel printing, delete the current and all pending print
    jobs and reset the printer.

  - With certain applications, the [Copies] setting is non-effective
    when setting is attempted from the printer driver. In such cases,
    specify the setting in the applications' [Print] dialogue box.

  - With certain applications, if you attempt multiple-copy printing of
    a document with [Collate] checked on the printer driver's [Page
    Setup] tab or in the application's [Print] dialogue box, printing
    will not be done correctly. To work around this, uncheck [Collate]
    before printing.

  - In some cases, printing will fail if there isn't enough virtual
    memory available. You can remedy this by increasing the size of the
    paging file. To do this, open the [System Properties] dialogue box
    by double-clicking [System] in the Control Panel or right-clicking
    [My Computer] and choosing [Properties]. Then click the [Advanced]
    tab, click [Performance Options...], click [Change...], specify the
    new paging file size, click [Set], and click [OK].

  - With certain applications, printing may not be done properly if
    [Print Type] or [Halftoning] is set to [Auto]. In this case, start
    [Print Advisor] on the [Main] tab and be sure to select [Print a
    top-quality photo] or [Print tables and charts]. Alternatively, set
    [Print Quality] on the [Main] tab to [Custom] and select a setting
    other than [Auto] for [Halftoning]. Next set [Colour Adjustment] to
    [Manual] and select a setting other than [Auto] for [Print Type].

  - When printing graduated or graphics-intensive print data, sometimes
    print data may not be printed. This occurs when there is not enough
    free space on your hard disk to temporarily store the data. To
    remedy this, make sure there is 40-50 MB of free space on the drive
    where Windows 2000 is installed. Alternatively, use the [Spool
    Folder] setting of [Server Properties] to allocate sufficient space
    for the spool folder.

  - If, during printing, you cancel the print job from the Printer's
    folder, there will be a delay before printing actually stops.

  - The [Page Layout], [Reverse Order], and [Collate] settings on the
    printer driver's [Page Setup] tab cannot be specified if you select
    the [Print directly to the printer] option or uncheck [Enable
    advanced printing features] on the [Advanced] tab of the Printer
    Properties dialogue box.

  - With certain applications, the [Page Layout], [Reverse Order], and
    [Collate] settings on the printer driver's [Page Setup] tab are
    ineffective. Examples are applications that don't support EMF
    spooling, such as PhotoShop 4.0 and PowerPoint.

  - The [Page Layout], [Reverse Order], and [Collate] settings on the
    printer driver's [Page Setup] tab are ineffective if you check
    [Print to file] in your application's [Print] dialogue box.

  - For more information on configuring Windows 2000, see the Windows
    2000 user's manual.

4. Points To Note with Applications

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When changing [Paper size] and [Orientation], do it using Word's
    settings, not the printer driver's.

  - Microsoft Word 2000/Microsoft Corporation
    If you specify a value greater than one for the [Pages per sheet]
    setting in Word's [Print] dialogue box, set [Page Layout] on the
    driver's [Page Setup] tab to [1-up Printing]. If you specify values
    greater than one for both settings, printing will not be done
    correctly. When you want to print more than one page per sheet, use
    one setting or the other to specify it. 

  - Microsoft Word 2000/Microsoft Corporation
    When using the [Scale to paper size] setting in the [Print] dialogue
    box, uncheck [Scaled Printing] on the printer driver's [Page Setup]
    tab. If checked, Word 2000's [Scale to paper size] setting will be
    overridden by the printer driver's [Printer Paper Size] setting on 
    the [Page Setup] tab when scaling to fit.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When selecting [Scaled printing] on the [Page Setup] tab, do this:

    1) Open Word's [Print] dialogue box.
    2) Open the printer driver dialogue box and on the [Page Setup] tab
       select the page size and click [OK].
    3) Without starting printing, close the [Print] dialogue box.
    4) Open Word's [Print] dialogue box again.
    5) Open the printer driver dialogue box and click [OK] again.
    6) Start printing.

  - Microsoft Word 2000/Microsoft Corporation
    When Word's [Allow A4/Letter paper resizing] feature is enabled, if
    [Orientation] in Word's [Page Setup] dialogue box is set to
    [Portrait] and the driver's [Orientation] setting is specified as
    [Landscape], printing is not done correctly. To avoid this, disable
    [Allow A4/Letter paper resizing] before printing. To access this
    feature, open the [Options] dialogue box from Word's [Tools] menu
    and click the [Print] tab.

  - Lotus Organizer 2.1/97/Lotus Corporation
    Lotus Organizer will print in colour even though monochrome printing
    has been selected. To stop this, check [Greyscale Printing] in
    the printer driver.

  - Photoshop/Adobe Systems Inc.
    Printing may not be done if you don't have system administrator
    privileges. Log on with system administrator privileges to print.

  - Lotus Notes/Lotus Corporation
    The system can lock up with certain print jobs. Make sure that in
    Notes' [Page Layout] settings you specify top and bottom margins of
    22.86 mm (0.9 in.) or 27.94 mm (1.1 in.).

  - Microsoft Outlook 97/Microsoft Corporation
    If you cancel printing from the application, the next print job will
    crash. On the Outlook [Schedule] tab, select spooling for the print
    document.

  - CorelDraw 8/Corel Corporation
    There are instances where problems arise if you try to open the
    printer driver's dialogue box from CorelDraw 8.0. For instance, a
    crash may occur or characters may be corrupted. To get round this,
    open the driver from the [Printers] folder, specify the settings you
    want, then print from the application. This problem does not occur
    with CorelDraw 9.0.

  - With some applications, when printing with [Page Layout] on the
    [Page Setup] tab set to [2-up Printing] or greater, certain page
    images may get cropped. If this happens, use the application to
    adjust the layout of the affected pages.

5. Network Printing

This section explains what you must do and what restrictions apply when
configuring clients and print servers for network printing and when
actually printing via a network printer.

<Overview>

With Windows, it is possible to print via the network to a printer
connected to another computer. Such a printer is called a shared
printer.

In the following explanation, a computer to which a shared printer is
directly connected is called a print server, and a computer which uses a
shared printer via the network is called a client. 

The following explains how to set up and work with a shared printer, as
well as describing what restrictions apply.

Regarding printer drivers, on the print server, install the driver most
suitable for the print server's operating system; on the client, install
the driver most suitable for the client's operating system.

For example, when using Windows 2000 Server, install the latest version 
of the Windows 2000 printer driver; and when using a Windows Millennium 
Edition (hereafter referred to as "Windows Me"), Windows 98 client,
install the latest version of the Windows Me, Windows 98 printer driver.

When running Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0 on a print server, the
printer driver used by clients can be saved on the print server in
advance. On Windows 2000 this function is called [Additional Drivers];
on Windows NT 4.0, [Alternative Drivers].

A driver which has been saved on the print server in advance is
installed on a client automatically when the client connects to the
shared printer. This feature is called point and print installation.

Point and print installation provides a convenient way for the print
server manager to cater for multiple clients. However, because
restrictions and considerations apply with a number of systems
(described later), it is recommended that drivers be installed in
advance on all clients that use the shared printer.

<Notes on the driver version>

The following explains about using the different versions of printer
driver.

* Windows 2000
For a print server or a client, use Version 1.32 of the 
Windows 2000 BJ printer driver. Also, if the print server and client 
are running the same operating system, use the same version of the 
driver on each.

* Windows NT 4.0

For a print server or a client, use Version 4.32 of the
Windows NT 4.0 BJ Printer Driver. Also, if the print server and client
are running the same operating system, use the same version of the
driver on each.

* Windows Me, Windows 98 or Windows 95
For a client, use the latest version of the Windows Me, Windows 98,
Windows 95 driver.

Note:
- Versions 3.xx, 4.00, and 4.10 of the Windows NT 4.0 driver cannot be
  used. 

- Network printing cannot be done by combining a Windows printer driver 
  (Microsoft) and a Canon printer driver. 
  Use a Canon driver on both the print server and client.

<Driver installation procedure>

The method of installing the driver is described below. First, install
the printer driver on the print server. Next, specify the shared
printer. Then install the printer driver on the client. Lastly, connect
the shared printer of the print server to the client.

Use the following procedure:

1) Install the appropriate printer driver on the print server. The
   installation method is more or less the same as for a local printer.

   Note:
   If the print server is running Windows Me, Windows 98 or Windows 95, 
   bi-directional communication with the printer is not possible, so the
   printer status cannot be determined. As a result, a cartridge-
   mismatch warning message is displayed on the print server even though
   the correct cartridge is installed, and printing sometimes stops or
   cannot be done at all. To avoid these problems, open the printer
   driver on the print server (Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 95), 
   click [Spool Settings...] on the printer properties [Details] tab, 
   and select [Disable bi-directional support for this printer].

2) Specify the printer connected to the print server as a shared
   printer. For information on how to do this, see the Windows online
   help.

3) Install the appropriate printer driver on the client. The
   installation method is more or less the same as for a local printer.

   Note:
   - Any port can be selected for installation. After choosing a
     suitable port, complete installation.

   - When using the installer to do the installation, a dialogue box
     telling you to turn the printer on appears. However, you can ignore
     this instruction.

4) Connect the shared printer of the print server to the client.
   From the client, open the print server computer, right-click the icon
   for the shared printer in the [Printers] folder, and do one of the
   following:

   - On a Windows 2000 client, choose [Connect...] from the menu.

   - On a Windows NT 4.0 client, choose [Install...] from the menu.

   - With a Windows Me, Windows 98 or Windows 95 client, do the following:

     1. Select [Start]-[Settings]-[Printers] on the client.

     2. Right-click the icon of the type of printer you want to use, and
        select [Properties].

     3. On the [Details] tab, click [Add port...].

     4. Select [Network] and click [Browse...].

     5. From the printer list, select the shared printer you want to use
        and click [OK].

As a result of this procedure, a printer icon allowing you to print to
the shared printer is created on the client computer.

Note:
A second printer icon is created With a Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0
client, a printer icon for the shared printer is created separately 
from the original one associated with the local printer. When printing 
on the shared printer, use the printer icon for that printer. Since 
the original printer icon is no longer needed, it can be deleted.

<Additional restrictions on network printing>

* Point and print installation

Point and print installation is possible when the print server is
running Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0.

If print server and client are both running Windows 2000 or Windows NT 
4.0, but a printer driver has not been installed on the client, by
right-clicking the icon for the shared printer of the print server and
selecting [Connect...] or [Install...], the printer driver will be
automatically installed on the client.

Also, if the print server and client are running different operating
systems, by using the [Additional Drivers] (Windows 2000) or
[Alternative Drivers] (Windows NT 4.0) feature, the driver needed by 
the client is saved on the print server and is automatically installed 
on the client when it connects to the shared printer.

Note the following when doing point and print installation:

* Bi-directional support is displayed as being off
With a Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0 client, [Enable bidirectional
support] on the client printer properties [Ports] tab is shown as being
off. Because of this, if the client user, having opened the properties
[Ports] tab then closes it by clicking [OK], bi-directional
communication with the print server will be disabled.

You can avoid this problem by installing the driver on the client in
advance and connecting to the shared printer. Also, by modifying the
permissions of the shared printer, it is possible to restrict the 
access rights of the client user and so prevent misoperation.

* Windows NT 4.0 driver installed under Windows 2000
If the print server is running Windows NT 4.0 and the client is running
Windows 2000, point and print installation will install the Windows NT 
4.0 printer driver under Windows 2000 on the client. Since Windows NT 
4.0 driver operation under Windows 2000 is not guaranteed, it is
necessary to install the correct driver manually by following the
procedure described under 4, "Installation Method", in the Introduction
to this Readme.

<Restrictions on use>

- When using a network printer, if the client's cartridge detection
  function ([Main] tab [Detect...] button) is used or the BJ Status
  Monitor is activated, a command is sent to the printer to obtain its
  status. If you have checked [Notify when remote documents are printed]
  on the [Advanced] tab of the print server's [Server Properties]
  dialogue box, a print completion notification message is displayed on
  the client in response to each command. In particular, if the BJ
  Status Monitor has been activated, a command requesting the printer
  status is issued frequently, with a completion notification message
  being displayed each time. To stop these messages appearing, uncheck
  [Notify when remote documents are printed] on the [Advanced] tab of
  the print server's [Server Properties] dialogue box, then restart the
  print server to make the setting effective.

- When using a network printer, sometimes the BJ cartridge cannot be
  detected correctly by clicking the [Detect...] button on the [Main]
  tab. If this happens, use the [Detect...] button of the printer driver
  installed on the print server.

- When using Axis Communications' PrintPoint 140 BJC ethernet print
  server, although printing is possible, bi-directional communication is
  not.
