I just bought an imageCLASS MF264dw, inserted the disk and got this message:
Canon Driver cannot be installed on this computer.
Cannot install on this version of the operating system you are using.
Run the installer on a version that supports it.
Does that mean that I have to downgrade my software just to accommodate this printer?
Is there a way around that?
EDIT: I'm not sure why the booklet makes things seem so complicated. I was able to install it wirelessly. Thanks again M7!

Booklets should come with an ***ATTN: Please visit Canon __link for most up to date information*** advisory labels. It would save some frustrations and/or headaches.
From what I understood, I needed a LAN or USB cord only in order to set printer up.
I started looking for cords. I eventually found a cord that I thought would be compatible with my dongle (thanks current Apple!). I started looking for the elusive USB port on the printer... and finally found it. The symbol indicated that it was a USB port, yet my USB cable in my hand looked significantly different than what was implied on the stamped plastic device.
I looked over the booklet and somewhere in the middle of the instruction manual (past 4 different languages, not sure why English section couldn't have been lumpted together) I stumpled upon something that said "Wireless"
I decided to take my chances and scanned my old bus ticked from June, 2019.
It actually worked.
Even though I must figure out how to install a hairline border on my printer images, I'm quite surprised that I was able to set up office equipment with my technological kinks. I hope this printer doesn't randomly fail on me because I would hate to go through this process again, with another model, or another brand.
