I stand corrected then.

If you've got a Windows Installer, boot with USB/DVD, format your C: drive and install a fresh OS. Then, install all drivers, upgrade Windows and only then install Onyx.

I would recommend that you use Ethernet port. USB is unreliable. Tell us what issues do you have with Ethernet?

Gotta say, if it's V19 I don't think it's even meant to run on Win7....

I'm running two computer with Onyx 19 on Windows 7 so I don't think it's that. Maybe try using something like REVO uninstaller on ONYX for a clean uninstall and then Reinstall.

Whenever you re-install Onyx, after uninstalling the application go to its directories like program files and delete all files that have been left.

p.s. WIN + R, type DEVMGMT.MSC, open it and see if there is everything okay.

Yep, that's why USB ports are unreliable. Basically, you need a router with four LAN ports (+1 WAN).
Plug you PC to LAN1,
Go to router's management page, look at some info that says what IP address has been allocated to your PC. If your PC has something like: 192.168.1.5 then
watch the video
Go to Printer settings and allocate to your Roland 192.168.1.6 (apply new settings, enter to the settings again and check it out if new settings have been applied.)
that's it. Plug your Roland to LAN2. Reboot router.

Open Onyx. Go to settings and hit its IP address 192.168.1.6


p.s. I suggest using a router since you've got two printers. The same procedure should be done for your Epson.
