Canon MG2520

I don't have the CD to install the driver for this printer anymore so I downloaded the driver from the Canon website.  My computer is running windows 7 home premium 64-bit.  When I try to open the program to install it I get an error that says "failed to aquire information on the driver and software.  Check the network connection and try again."  Any ideas?
