Continuous Ink System (CIS)

I have had my continuous ink system for well over a year now for my Epson Stylus PHOTO R240. The results are excellent and the running costs are peanuts. Installation can be a bit awkward and following the instructions is essential or you will have one hell of mess on your hands. The system I bought was from that wonderful site 'eBay' and it was from Hong Kong. It came with full vessels of ink and at that time cost around £50 (aprox. $99). They seem to have grown now in popularity and the prices seem to have fallen and their availability has increased along with top-up inks.

To remedy this problem, you must register the program so windows can add it to its list of programs by using OpenWithAdd or OpenWithView. This may not be a common problem, but I will add it to the site in case anyone comes searching for these solutions.
