  1. Prior to software installation, completely install your Virtuoso printer and all of its options following the instruction in the Virtuoso Printer Quick Installation Guide or the Virtuoso Printer User's Guide

    • Perform the hardware installation through the initial ink fill (Virtuoso Printer Quick Installation Guide Step 5 or Virtuoso Printer User's Guide page 36), but power off the printer prior  to connecting it to the computer via USB and installing the software.
