Solution:

You have to edit the file OEMsetup.inf:

  • Open the OEMsetup.inf with an editor and search for PackageAware=TRUE

  • If the inf-file had PackageAware=TRUE in [PrinterPackageInstallation.amd64] section, you have to delete that section, too. Example in the screenshot, but this could be more lines in a different driver.

  • You cannot override the OEMsetup.inf file, but you can save it with a new name. → Here OEMsetup2.inf. Make sure it is an inf-file by selecting all file in the data type line, not textfile (.txt)!

  • Choose the unsigned driver now, because editing the file invalidated the signature…
