Re: f4280 driver for windows 7

Try this:


  1. Insert the setup disk in your CD/DVD drive.  Choose to view the files in Explorer.  Scroll down to the file "Setup," which is identified as an application.
  2. Right-click the file and select "Properties." Click the "Compatibility" tab at the top of the resulting window.
  3. Check off "Run this program in compatability mode for:" and choose "Windows Vista" from the pop-up menu.
  4. ALSO check "Run this program as administrator" at the bottom of the window.
  5. Press "Apply," then "OK."

Now you can double-click the "Setup" file and run the software installer.
