Today I downloaded from Windows Update an optional update which was a later driver, from 10/07. In Fax Settings,...

I have been unable to install my HP Photosmart 7660 onto my laptop running Vista business. I tried to install the drivers that worked on XP and they were not compatable. HP said that I would have to use the alternate driver for vista which is the driver for the Deskjet 5600.

Not A Normal Printer Problem by defrag1720[_4_]
I do not have a printer hooked up or ever loaded onto my laptop and do not plan on doing so. I read that to print to file that the Microsoft XPS Document Writer should remain as the "Printer" even though one is not installed. In the Event Viewer I constantly get "SpoolerWin32SPL" Warnings with an event ID of 4. I checked the cures at Microsoft and they all pertain to having a real printer. I...

Twist on Default Printer by [email protected]
I see that there are a lot of problems related to default printers in Vista, but so far I haven't seen my particular issue described, so I thought I'd give it a go and see if anyone else has a solution. My issue is this: I have four printers defined. Two are PDF printers (don't ask - one was automatically installed by some software), and two are defined as local printers with a standard TCP/IP...

Multiple Images on One Sheet by Phanatic
With Windows XP, using the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, more than one different picture could be selected for printing on one sheet of paper at a time. Is there an equivalent command / option to this function in Windows Vista with the new Windows Photo Gallery Viewer? Maybe I haven't looked hard enough. This was a great feature. Any ideas?

I typed up a spreadsheet on Works, but it won't print? Is my printer incompatible? The error message said it's from trying to print from Works 8 to a Windows Vista-based computer. Is there some way to make this work and print my spreadsheet?
