When i try to modify the Key it doesn't let me, even if I ran regedit as administrator. It says:
Cannot edit Device: Error writing the value's new contents. I wanted to put there: Canon MG5450 series Printer,winspool,nul:
even if in the example it says winspool,Ne03. I figured I could leave what i had in default.
the i also see another key that is:
Load REG_SZ C:\Users\-(my user name here)-\LOCALS~1\Temp\mshikra.bat
this also i dont know what is because if i go to that folder that .bat file is not present.
I also tried this tool:
and when it analyzed it said: Canon MG5400 series Printer is not the default printer, then i clicked fix it and id didn't it said, not succeeded.
Now I dont know what else to do.
The only final thing left to try maybe would be to reset all the settings on the printer (the printer connects to the home network with the wifi password) maybe disable the wireless, wifi option if that is possible. turn it off then, delete again all the entries of the printer and retry to install it, but then maybe into the adminstrator account.
