Install a Generic Printer

Occasionally when installing EstLite on a brand new computer you will encounter a message informing you that a printer driver is required. This is fixed either by installing an actual printer, or by installing a virtual printer by following the steps below:


Press the Windows logo on your keyboard, or click the Windows icon in the lower-left of your screen to open the Start Menu. There, search for "Control Panel." Once it appears in the search results, just click its icon.
