I tried to install the printer drivers for Epson Artisan 800 to my HP desktop computer. I have Windows XP operating system. The drivers seem to install but then I get an error message "printer driver cannot be installed". Is this a Windows XP issue?

Ok, I will assume it's 32-bit winxp.

Here's the link to their driver page:
Epson Artisan 800 Drivers

Now looking at the choices available you need:
- epson config utility v3.7.0
- Scanner Driver and EPSON Scan Utility v3.44A
- Printer Driver v6.63
or
- Drivers and Utilities Combo Package - epson13282.exe

Which one did you have?

Yes, 32 bit winXP. Drivers and Utilities Combo Package epson13329.exe (this was what Epson support chose for me to download).
