Oki B4600 LED Printer
« on: August 01, 2022, 05:45:29 PM »
Hey gang hope you can help. I managed to find an installer for this LED printer. Problem is it recognizes it as a document and not an installer. It cannot figure out the application to use to run the installer. As you can see I have read the directions and launched it but it cannot find the associated software to run. Any ideas?? I just need to extract the PCL driver from it. Most graciously.

Thank you very much.. much appreciated 😊

Itís kind of crazy they have the installer for OS9 but itís an installer file not in MacOS format..

I'll try them tomorrow but you know how these companies can be... they don't like supporting old stuff... so I am not sure how receptive they will be. Plus by this time they might have staff that has no clue what OS 9 even is...

Maybe this might help. This is the actual file that really appears like an installer file with a size of 3.9MB but it only see's it as a document not an application.

Oki seems to be commendable providing Mac OS 9 drivers, Ö

Seems like the file may be missing the right type (APPL?) or worse if downloaded and decompressed on a non-OS9 system.

There should be some utilities to change this code (search for creator/type in the Mac Garden as I cannot come up with a specific utility name from memory).

Worst-case scenario, you could try to give it to Stuffit expander but most installer are a lot more than compressed data...

Good luck and make sure to download it from you OS9 machine to make sure you are in the best scenario ;)

Mat your correct! Thanks for that link! I couldnít see those drivers when I navigated there for some reason. And the original CD with drivers was burned with a non MacOS machine thatís why I think the type got all messed up. I originally tried ResEdit and that didnít work. I also tried StuffIt Expander and that didnít work. Iím going to try the download link on my machine Mat provided. You all are a tremendous help!!! Thanks so much!!!
