Driver Date & Version
4 Feb 2004 (Ver 1.5)
Yes, Canon is not providing any driver update for Windows XP user. The drivers available so far are just for Windows NT4, 95/98/98SE and 2000.
Luckily, a third party driver, The Printer Angel has been developed by BJC-5000 owners for all the people who wish to install Windows XP, but are face the problem of lack of compatibility with Windows 2000 drivers.
You can download the Windows XP driver from the download link above. The driver can be executed for 30 times, after that, the author will ask you to donate $5 to sustain the driver. You need to install Windows 2000 driver before installing Windows XP driver.
The installation steps for the driver:
- Install Windows 2000 drivers -> Download Canon BJC5000/5100 driver for Windows 2000.
