Pixma Pro 100, software installation problem


I bought new Pixma 100 and i've got a problem with software/driver installation on Windows 10. On step 3 in driver installation, there's a message that "The printer is deceted. Please wait..." but after couple of minutes it's telling me that "The printer is not detected. Check connection."


After troubleshooting in Windows it's says that there might be a problem with USB 3.0 port (even if I put cable to 2.0 port) and changing printer status to "Deafult printer'. It's seems that Windows see the printer (it is active in Devices and Printers) and I even can start printing from softwares like Photoshop. Although can't do that from "My Images Garden". If I go to "Printing preferences" it's shows window with oversimplified options. 


What i've tried:


1. Put USB cable to various different ports.

2. Uninstalling and installing again whole software along with turning off printer, restarting system etc.


I tried to do that with wi-fi connection, but printer can't connect with my w-fi. I've tried everything that is in Canon's helping center and error still remains.  


Additional information: I don't know if it matters, but this is a USA version of printer and i'm using it in Europe. 








Have you downloaded the latest version from the Canon support site?
