Installing Label Printer Driver in Windows® XP
Similar to all other devices in the system, the printer also needs support from proper software. This software is known as the driver software. The driver software in the system depends upon the underlying Operating System and the user needs to select the driver which suits the operating system. The label printer driver controls the printer by providing proper instructions while working. When you select an option to print, it will be directly transmitted to the driver software. After proper transformation of that request into the machine understandable format, it will be transmitted to the device.

Tips to download
To download the driver software from a website, you first need to consider the authorization of the website.
