I'm using a Canon MP800R multifunction printer/scanner. The problem is,
I can't install it on my network. Canon were not very helpful and said
it was a "Vista specific issue", not "Canon specific".
Canon use a weird install procedure starting with a USB connection and
then migrating to wireless or wired. The printer WILL work via USB but
when I try to configure for a network using the Canon IJ Network Tool
version 2.2.1, I can't complete the printer configuration. Either manual
or automatic search for ip address causes the appcrash.
I'm using the latest drivers 1.10 64 bit, Canon IJ network tool version
2.2.1; MP navigator 2.12 which are supposed to be for Vista 64.
I guess the setup software (IJ network tool) is 32bit, so the crash
What's the solution?
1) Let it go and be grateful the machine works at all
2) Hope that Vista will make a hotfix eventually
3) Hope that Canon will do the decent thing and invest some money to
make a proper 64bit IJ network tool
Any thoughts? It seems crazy to have a network printer unworkable
except for USB, but at least it will print/scan!
