    Hello!
    I have an issue with my Windows system which is installed on an M1 Macbook, meaning it has Windows ARM. The problem is related to the fact that I am unable to install the driver for my new printer, and therefore unable to use it. For context, the printer is a Xerox Workcenter 3025, which requires its own xerox driver to work. However, whenever I try to install the driver, it gives me an error saying: "Operation could not be completed: error 0x800f0214." I believe that this issue is connected to the fact that it has Windows ARM, but I would appreciate it if anybody could help me. Looking for a driver through Windows update has solved the same issue with my previous printer, which was a Samsung one, but this time since Windows only recognizes the printer as a scanner, I am unable to find and install the driver automatically with Windows. I tried looking for an update through device management, where Windows searches for it online, also tried running the setup file in compatibility mode but no success. I have also tried selecting different windows drivers that are preinstalled on the computer but none of them managed to help the system recognize the device as a printer. I even updated to Windows 11 hoping it might change things, but it did not help. In conclusion, is there any way to install the driver without getting this error?

    I would also like to add that I've tried Parallels' printer share feature but it does not print anything even though it works fine on the Mac system.

    So I have the same issue on Macbook Air M1 and Win 11 on parallels version 17 (latest version downloaded today). Same error message while installing driver for Samsung ML 2010 printer. The above solution (download driver for MacOs & then share with Win 11) will not work for me because there is NO driver for MaOS Monterey.
    Have sent a Messenger note to Parallels team and lets see what they say.

    Has anyone solved this? I have a Mac Mini M2 running Parallels 18.3.0.
    I've successfully installed my printer software on my Windows 11 laptop and also my Intel Mac Pro running Parallels 18.3.0, but can't figure it out on my Mac Mini M2 or my Mac Mini M1.
    I don't want to share the printer, I need the software and drivers on my Mac M2

    Thanks,

    I have the same issue. Seems like after the last Parallels, Windows updates I can no longer install print drivers. No problems prior to these updates. MacBook Air, M1, Sonoma 14.1.1.

    Sharing the printer does not work for me. Doesn't show up in quickbooks. Can't install the print drivers from Ricoh as the install window just keeps going back to select the driver location
