I can say that we have been 75% successful. The Canon technical support
people sent an alternate web link to download their drivers and I got that
working on both of our computers without any difficulty. Since we have a
print server coming in the next day or so that will accomodate two USB
printers, that is a good thing.
But I was able to get the HP LaserJet 1020 printer installed on only one of
the two computers - the one the kids primarily use, regrettably. When I
tried to install it on the other one, it comes up with an "Installation
Failed" error. Clearing out the files in the C:\Program Files\Hewlett
Packard folder the installation program created (actually removing the
subdirectory from the hard drive) and clearing the registry with Uniblue
Registry Booster 2 did not solve the problem. Maybe I just need to look at
the screen cross-eyed while it is installing will take care of it...
