Thanks for your reply and sorry I forgot the details...just a bit frustrated as I have tried everything I know. OS is Windows 10 Pro. BTW not time sensitive just excited to finally get the printer. I tried calling support but they closed until tomorrow, I am sure they will be able to bet me going. Thanks again!
UPDATE: I reached Canon support (David) and he zoned in on the issue. The driver .exe file would not execute even though I disabled the Anti-Virus, so he patiently guided me to the proper file where we opend it and ran the program. The driver installed and I was printing within 30 minutes! This printer is AMAZING!
