Windows 8 Driver (for UPS Driver Information


A user may experience a  Windows 8 "Unspecified Device" error when installing the UPS Driver for their ZP450.

Users have been successful in correcting this problem by first unzipping the driver installation file, then running the driver setup.exe as an admin using Windows 7 compatibility mode to preinstall the driver. You can then uninstall USB printing support from the device manager and scan for hardware changes. The printer should now be installed correctly.
