Explanation of Terms

Built-in Driver

Refers to the driver included in the Windows 8/8.1 operating system, these

drivers are also referred to as "in-box drivers" or "in-OS drivers"

Automatically installs for printers that are on a non-domain network with 30

devices or less

Most printers with a built-in driver use the OKI PCL6 Class Driver

Supports x32, x64 and ARM

This is the only driver option for Windows RT (ARM processor) tablets

If Built-in Driver is Supported: The Windows 8 built-in driver at time of purchase


can be used

Windows Update:

Automatically installs the driver when the computer has an internet connection

OKI Driver*

Full feature driver available on the OKI website

Supports x32 and x64 (**may require Driver Updater)

There may be some feature limitations with the Windows 7/Vista driver under
Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating system

** Driver Updater (x64 only): This is the update program that allows you to use the
driver for Windows 7 x64 on Windows 8 x64 and Windows Server 2012.
-

Please install the Windows 7 x64 driver first and reboot the PC. After this run the driver
updater and reboot the PC again.
