Re: setting up new hardware problems
Is this printer software Vista compatible? The HP 3015 I have is "Vista
Compatible" but HP failed to mention that their software toolbox is
not...and they have no plans to update it (my 3015 is 18 months old).

Two things to try. Right-click on the "Setup" program on the CD and choose
"Run as Administrator". Or run the Compatibility Wizard and choose to
install it as "XP" (I don't remember the exact verbiage).

Oh...sorry. I didn't notice that you had asked the same question a few
minutes earlier in a separate post.

Tim what did you do on the 3015? The websites shows 3 drivers but I
dont know whether to just let Vista discover it (3015) or figure out
which to install?

Thanks.
