I have just recently purchased an HP laptop running windows 10 and am trying setup my Canon MX 492 printer as a network printer. I have two other laptops running windows 7 and they installed the printer just fine. I have downloaded the installation software from the Canon website (win-mx490-1_1-ucd) and have tried to install the printer several times using the Cableless setup. Each time I run the installation, I get the following message "New port could not be created:0000". When I try to print to the printer, the job errors. I feel like I am going in circles trying to resolve this. Any help to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Please download the driver from our web site:

Thanks for responding, Patrick. When I get to your instruction to double click mp-68-win-mx490-1_02-ea33_3.zip, this tries to install the printer. The message "new port could not be created:0000" comes up again. The next screen
has the message "MP drivers not installed" . I cannot find the "new" folder that you mentioned anywhere nor can I find the file CNMNPU.exe. Please help again.

Patrick's steps are accurate.
The .exe is self extracting. When you change the extension to .zip, it loses this functionality. Double clicking the .zip file does not try to install the driver.
It does allow you to view the file's contents.
Open the LAN folder. The referenced utility is there.

Again, thanks for helping. I must be missing something in the instructions. When I change the file extension from .exe to .zip and then double click, the program extracts the files and tries to install the printer. I have even downloaded the file to my windows 7 laptop and tried the instructions, but get the same results. My technical expertise is limited, so if there are any implied steps that I am missing, please let me know. For instance, am I changing the file extension correctly by right-clicking and renaming? Do I need to ZIP and Unzip anything?

I finally got your instructions to work and am now able to print. I Googled some information on changing exe files to zip files and discovered that I needed to have a "switch" turned off in the File Explorer Options settings. For future reference, here are the steps.
click on start menu
click on settings
in the search box, type in "file explorer options"
in the results window, click on "file explorer options"
in the "file explorer options" window, click view
uncheck the box that says "hide extensions for known file types"

By default windows hides file types with known extensions.
So you were renaming the file to (example) xx_windows_installer.exe.zip and not able to browse the folder.
Glad you figured it out.

Your print spooler being "stopped" is unrelated to this topic. "New port could not be created:0000."
