Can't install epson CX4600 because of cmdninst error

by s08270 / March 4, 2005 2:44 AM PST

I am attempting to install a Epson CX4600 on my Gateway machine running Me and receive the following error: "cmdninst has caused an error in setupx.dll". This occurs at the point in the install where I plug the printer into the USB port to complete the install. My machine hangs so I have to unplug the printer and reboot. Epson and Gateway tech support have not been much help. Any suggestions.

Epson CX4600 and "Cmdninst" errors

I too am getting the same result upon running the installation CD. Have you gotten any help that worked yet? I have tried downloading the drivers directly from the Epson web site and get the same results.

Do tell what that means. Many will try to download, but didn't so that leaves them in the position that they still have the old drivers.

The other cause is spyware and spyware damage. Got any?

I finally gave up on Windows ME and upgarded my OS to XP Professional SP2. The printer drivers loaded without problems on the new OS and the printer works flawlessly.
