I am unable to install the drivers for my canon printer. The download of canon printer drivers was successful and the scanner is detected and got installed but just not the printer. The canon printer driver is shown in the printer Control Panel, but on tapping, it shows “Driver is unavailable”. On the computer printer settings i have “Add a Printer” and it detects the canon printer. But after that, it shows me with “Printer could not be installed” into few minutes of installing. And thoughts? I contacted the Canon customer support, and completely uninstalled the canon printer drivers and install back again but nothing.
