I have got a mp170 printer. When the printer is on, I run the MpTool software, but when it tries to detect it automatically the process seems to be crash. While if I turn off the printer the process starts but I can't use the software the same cause an error. I think the printer must be set in a specific mode. Could someone help me? Italian would be better than italian, thanks
