Suggested Remedy and Example

A batch script will "flatten" these driver packages to make them compatible with Novell installs.

To do this, follow this summary of steps:

MS-Dos Batch Script File

to download the bat file.

Download, run, and extract driver package

To do this:

  1. Download the driver package to your local machine from the Lexmark website.

  2. Extract the driver files.

  3. Run the driver package executable; for example, Lexmark_Universal_UD0_Win_64_PCL_XL_Emul.exe.

  4. Proceed through the install to extract the files to the desired location; for example, C:\Lexmark\Drivers\univPCLXL, depending on the driver.

Cancel Add Printer Wizard and copy the script file to the extraction directory

To do this:

  1. Cancel out of Add Printer Wizard when it launches.

  2. Copy the script file (novell_flatfile.bat) to the win_2kxp directory of the extracting path; for example, C:\Lexmark\Drivers\univPCLXL\drivers\print\win_2kxp.

Launch command prompt and run batch file

To do this:

  1. Launch the command prompt and go to the win_2kxp directory; for example, C:\Lexmark\Drivers\univPCLXL\drivers\print\win_2kxp

  2. Type novell_flatfile.bat <language> <architecture> to run the script.

Command examples:

For example, type novell_flatfile.bat English x86 for a 32-bit English driver package.

For example, typenovell_flatfile.bat English x64. for a 64-bit English driver package.

This will copy all the necessary files to the win_2kxp directory.

Language andArchitecture values are as follows:

  • - Chi_Simp
  • - Chi_Trad
  • - Danish
  • - Dutch
  • - English
  • - Finnish
  • - French
  • - German
  • - Italian
  • - Japanese
  • - Korean
  • - Norwegian
  • - Polish
  • - PortBrzl
  • - Romanian
  • - Russian
  • - Spanish
  • - Swedish
  • - Turkish
  • -x86
  • -x64
  1. The driver package is now ready to be uploaded to the Broker’s RMS database.


As is required for Novell installs, previous driver packages contained copies of all driver files in the same .INF directory within what is called a "flat file structure."

The drivers referenced at the beginning of this article include newer Microsoft core driver files. This change removed the additional driver file copies from the INF file directory structure; hence, the error message when a user attempts to install the print driver on a Novell Broker.
