    My Labacus Innovator® software hasn’t automatically selected a printer port. How do I fix it?

    Make sure you have administration rights over the printer. You need to be able to “Print”, “Manage Printer” and “Manage Documents”. If you have administration rights, restart your computer, and make sure the printer is connected and switched on before you start Labacus Innovator®.
