My PC with Windows 7 or 8.1 is showing ‘’No Printer’’

Windows 7 and 8.1 have problems with Makerbot drivers. Printer will display “No Printer” despite being connected.

To fix these issues:

  1. Cycle the power on your printer.
  2. Make sure any Makerbot background services are turned off (which can be done via pressing control-alt-delete and ending the process) and make sure your Makerbot has the latest firmware (Version 7.6.)

If these issues persist after the measures above, please let us know!
