Please help me, I have installed the software for my printer but it is not working, i've gone into system info and it is saying Printer port is set to FILE, is this the problem???

USB should be checked if it's the USB version. right click on the printer icon and then properties click on the Ports tab and see that USB is checked

Hi Sil-ver,
My printer has a parallel port,

Then I would have thought the LPT port should be ticked

oh ok, how do i find this, so as i can make sure it has been checked?

In control panel open the printer icon. Right click on the epson printer icon and then on properties. Click on the 'Ports' tab and see if the LPT box is checked. If it's not, put a tick in the box. If there is a tick in the 'File' box untick it.

If you have been trying to get documents printed to FILE: then you will have been prompted for the location and filename under which to store the document print output.

Could be time for a cleanout, these 'files' are useless, as they do not carry enough formatting information for printing to the printer afterwards.
