Dear readers,

Does anyone recognize a problem with the Canon i865 driver for Windows
98 confliting with the drivers for the ATI Rage Pro driver? If I
remove the ATI driver the printerdriver works fine. However, if I
enable the ATI installing the Canon driver causes the PC to hang
completely and I have to do a cold restart. The hang also occurs when,
with an already installed driver, I click the "Main" tab on the
"preferences" dialog: boom, no response anymore. All of this works
fine on Windows NT 4.0

ATI Rage data: driver version 4.3.139, 4.0.0 ,ati2mtaa.sys,
ati2dvaa.dll, Adapter chip type Rage 128Pro (AGP4x), Bios BK3.0.1
VR001.001.003.001.026

Canon driver version Ver.4.60

Any reply would be highly appreciated.

I am suspicious that the problem is the printer driver installation
method. In Win98, the driver should be installed before the printer is
connected the first time, or connected the first time only when the
driver installation calls for it. Doing otherwise often leads to
spurious problems with Win98 device installations. Plug and Play only
works properly when the driver is resident in the Win98 driver set.

Dear Quaoar,

I have tried all combinations of connected/disconnected, on/off etc.
In all combinations the same problem occurred. It does seem to have to
do with the ATI driver, because without the ATI driver all
combinations of connected/disconnected and on/off worked fine...

Well, the problem is solved. I removed my ATI driver, installed
DirectX 9, installed a new ATI driver (a specific one for my VIA
Apollo MVP3 chipset) and hey presto, the Canon dialog worked fine. The
old "update your drivers and stuff around it" routine did the trick
again.
