ASAP helps Butler University in New 2014 Student Registration

Zebra 7 Series card printerOn the Butler University campus, your student ID is your all-access pass into the library, athletic center, and usually your next meal. When incoming students register, they receive the laminated photo cards and carry them with them at all times. Loaded with “Dawg Bucks,” their student ID cards act like debit cards for purchases at campus dining spots, some select off-campus restaurants and the campus bookstore.

During high-volume new student registration – when hundreds of students need cards in a short time frame – fast ID card creation is critical. When cumbersome printing slowed the process, Butler began looking for a better way.

As a client of ASAP Identification, we were able to assist Butler in deploying Zebra’s ZXP Series™ 7 card printers to meet the demand of ID cards during high-volume new student registration.

“When someone comes into our office for a replacement card, the printer is ready to go and we have their cards right away. They comment, ‘That was fast!”
– Theresa Hilliard (Butler University)

Installation issues moving from an Eltron/Zebra printer to Fargo

There is a known issue with driver installation if an Elton Printer was previously installed on the machine.


Problem: During the final installation process for USB Fargo printers. The user is instructed to plug in the USB cable to finish the installation. When the usb cable is connected – nothing happens and the only option they have is to click “back” and they can’t complete the driver installation process.


  1. The user needs to go into: c\windows\Inf and look for usbprint.in file, rename this file to usbprint.inf.
  2. Next, reboot the PC then reinstall the driver. Most of the time the INF folder is hidden but the user can view the hidden folder by following these instructions:
  3. From Windows Explorer, go to: Tools / Folder Options
  4. Select the tab “View”
  5. Under “Files and Folders” and “Hidden Files and Folders” click on “Show hidden files, folders and drives”.
