so we can see the region of your printer.

2. Right Click the “XPS Card Printer” and select “Printer Properties”.




3. Select the “Printer Status” Tab at the top of the Properties Window.




4. Click “Configure printer” bottom right of the Printer Status window.


5 This will open Printer manager web portal. If you get a security message click “Continue to the website” as this is perfectly safe.

6. Click “Log In” on the Home page which will be set to WebUser. No password is required.

You will see this web page.  Look for Region Code and let us know the value it has.


The value is a hexidecimal value and needs converting to Decimal eg Region code 095  would show a hex value of 5f
