    This probably won't be comforting, but:

    Windows 10 compatibility for Epson Stylus DX8400 All-in-One Printer model


    (MS thinks it's compatible - "no action required")

    Epson offers the 6.53 drivers fro Windows 10 X64:

    Epson Stylus DX8400 : Drivers & Software


    Are those the ones that you tried? Did you run them as Administrator?

    Right click on the executable, then select "Run as Administrator".

    Another option is to use the "troubleshoot compatibility" in the same right-click menu. That would allow you to run the installer in a mode that is compatible with an older version of Windows (say, 7). I've had that work, rarely.
