Did you, by any chance, run Roland VersaWorks.msi for installation? Don't, run setup.exe instead.

Maybe !!

Ive done a complete reinstall using the version 2 disc I was supplied with , and then doing the 3 updates . Took a while but seem to back and working , have printed a fair bit with no issues

Looking at getting a seperate pc to run versacamm from , not connected to internet and without many programs to clutter things up!!

Get the latest installer (5.x) for your VersaWorks install.
Any modern usable PC will do (4 GB RAM, Core2Duo or newer etc). An updated Windows does not really want to run hiccup-free on lower spec.

Hi, Ive also just purchased a new Alienware 15 laptop for my business...hoping to be able to use this to output to my printer when required as well...It doesn't have a CD disc drive? so I am trying to download a version of Versaworks to be able to use it? seem to have downloaded a program, but once I try to extract the file to install it it is sowing me a message that the file is empty??? it had been downloading for hours previously??? Any ideas of where I can get a download of this program that works? This laptop is running windows 8 and my printer I am using is a Soljet III XC-540...any suggestions or links would be helpful :)
I am also located in Australia...not sure if that really matters with this issue though? Cheers for any help.

Contact your local office, they should be able to give a direct link to download from.

You don't need a driver for VP-300, it's a network printer.

I am new to Roland and have just purchased a SP-540V. Before reading this forum, I have tried install VW onto a windows 8.1 machine without success. Am I right in thinking that I can't actually use this computer or is there a way to make it work?

You should be able to install Roland VersaWorks on the Professional edition of Windows 8.1, which version of VersaWorks are you using.
