Brother Printer Software
November 30, 2023

Control Center 4 shortcut:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ControlCenter4\BrCcBoot.exe" /model="MFC-9130CW LAN"

If Control Center 4 doesn't connect:
- Remove printer from Devices + Printers
- Remove all Brother software from Programs + Features
- Use print driver installer, extracted folders, MSI, uninstall each .msi in the folder (15 or so)
- Remove Brother folder from 'C:\Program Files', 'C:\Program Files (x86)', and 'C:\ProgramData' folders.
- In Regedit, remove these:
- - - 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Brother'
- - - 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Brother' and 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Brother'
- - - 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Brother'
- Reboot
- Reinstall software

I've tried multiple fixes, so far the only thing that seems to work is installing the printer and manually picking the folder with the driver in it.
