I believe debugging was already enabled. It seems the drivers for the are not meant for the N at all. First, can you take care that your system is completely up-to-date?

Printing and scanning both work fine in dual-booted Win 7, which is the best thing I can say about Windows. Install the standard c library for 32bit applications e. Install the drivers using “–force-architecture” mfc-7440j “–force-all”option.

The driver messes up margins and such for this printer. All works except faxmodem is quirky to install. I installed all over on another PC running Ubuntu Living with PCL is a sub-optimal by far solution.
