PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: win 95 4.0 build 950a
Problem Application Name & Version: Panasonic KX-P6100 driver
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Panasonic KX-P6100 printer
Error Messages:Set up error. Information cannot be added to the Windows file Win.ini or System.ini



I have successfully attached this printer to my computer before.
Recently removed the printer and now want to reinstall. All goes well up to the last? stage of installation when above error message appears.
Have successfully installed another printer so I suspect it is not a Panasonic driver problem but something to do with O/S.
Norton utilities doesn't perceive any issues with registry/system files etc etc.
AVG anti-virus says I'm clean.
Anybody got any solutions,ideas,words of comfort?

Hi,

Make sure your system.ini and win.ini are not corrupted.

Start > Run
Type 'system.ini' (without quotes) then OK
Is there garbage characters in this file or does it appear legible?
Do the same for win.ini

If both are fine, check the files attributes to make sure they're not set to "Read Only"

Using Windows Explorer, find the files under c:\windows, right click and select "Properties", the first tab will show the attributes, remove check in "Read Only" if there is one. Do the same for the other file.

Hi sylvain

Both win.ini and system.ini files look OK
Both also have file attributes of "archive" so presume no problem there.

Hi

In safe mode, Win95 won't let the Add Printer wizard proceed or am I missing something?

Good spotting there Admin.

Hope this is relevant for your problem?

NOTE: The Panasonic printer may no longer print if the lines in the WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI files are modified.

Panasonic KX-P6100/6300/6500 Printers In Windows 95 and 98, click on the Start button and click on Run. On the Open line or the Command Line, type SYSEDIT and select OK. Double-click the title bar that reads C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI to bring that window to the front and maximize it. In the SYSTEM.INI file, locate the section titled [386enh]. Locate the lines "device=SUMOVMI.386" or "device=KXP6100.386" or "device=WEMU387.386." Place a semicolon (Wink at the beginning of the lines, so they read ";device= SUMOVMI.386" or ";device= KXP6100.386" or ";device=WEMU387.386."

NOTE: Additional text (a path statement), like C:\WINDOWS or C:\KXP6X00, may be listed after the equals sign and before the .386 filename on each line. For example, the line "device=sumovmi.386" might be "device=C:\WINDOWS\sumovmi.386" or "device=C:\KXP6X00\sumovmi.386" instead. Click on File, and click Exit. Choose Yes to save the changes. Restart Windows for the changes to take effect.

Richo

I forgot to say that this is how to eliminate any remenents of the printer program so you can re-install the software.

However the above text will allow you to see if the lines are where they should be in the system files. If perhaps you would like to, you could put these lines back into you system files (minus the ';') and you may get your printer up and running if the referenced files actually exist on your HD(s).

Sorry about this but I'm rushing to finish here.


Goodluck ...Berty
