Re: Photo Gallery does not list my printer
HELLO IS THERE ANYONE FROM MICROSOFT HERE?
There are hundreds of people all over the world experiencing the same
problem. Please can a clever person from the home of unstable time wasting
software look into this problem.
It appears that anybody who has a HP2600n networked printer, and maybe other
networked printers, cannot print from Windows Photo Gallery in Windows Vista.
The computer I am trying to fix is running Vista Business 32bit and networked
printers simply do not show up in the list.
The printer is installed correctly because I can print from Word, Excel and
print a test page.
This installation of vista is only two days old. I had to re-install from
scratch because of a different problem with Vista. We did not have this
Please can someone prove that Microsoft care about their customers and help
all these stranded people out.
