Sharp AL-1540CS – need 64-bit Vista driver
Hello to all,

I tried posting a reply under the old 2/08 “Greetings & Here's my problem” thread, but I realized that was unlikely to be seen, so here I am. I initially thought that old thread would really help me – but I still have a problem.

Yesterday I bought a new laptop that is running Vista 64-bit, and I cannot find a driver for my Sharp AL-1540CS. I spoke to Sharp, and while I did get just a touch of sympathy, I got no help. Sharp, as you know, has put out a driver for this printer for Vista 32-bit, but not Vista 64-bit. (The guy points out that my printer/copier was made in May 2003. Well, so what! I am only on my second toner cartridge. I hate to have get rid of it and buy another, for lack of a driver.)

Anyway, I went to the Sharp Canada site, per this thread, thinking that would be a solution. I could see that the file said 32-bit, but you guys seemed to have found that it worked. But I could not get it to work. I downloaded and tried two different install files (one of which was zipped, and the other of which had the instructions in French), but neither worked. If it worked for you guys before, am I missing something, or is it possible that Sharp Canada changed the file?

I would appreciate any help that anyone can offer – especially someone who got their AL-1540CS to work with Vista 64-bit. Instructions as to what to do would be fine. However, if the file that worked for you is no longer available, and if someone would be generous enough to send it to me, please call my cell at your convenience (240-472-0098) and I will give you my email. (I am in the DC area.)

Thanks much, Jack
