This probably happens because the tar was created without the --hard-dereference and --dereference flags. Basically, the tar contains files that are hard and soft links to different places but they're not included in the tar file, so it will fail.

The solution: We've tried to add a driver from an similar printer, edited many configs but this printer driver seems to be bigger. So our special feature (controlling hardware by sending hex on usb->rs232) that had problems with windows just got moved to an ubuntu 12.04 VirtualBox with guest-additions and share usb-device.
