I encountered my first Vista machine this week and got a message thet certain problems were encountered when installing the printer and the installation could not continue. The problems listed were a certain five DLL files that I assume could not be overwritten.

I managed to muddle through the system well enough to see the user account I was using was an administrator account. The printer is a new HP AIO OfficeJet; but, I am not at that location right now and I don't remember the model number.

Can anyone offer suggestions on the direction I should go with this?

Rant:
Vista--mostly change for the sake of change.

Is it a Vista driver you are installing or an XP driver?

device manager > right click (your printer icon) > search microsoft (top option) for update if you havent tried that already.

Im thinking microsoft is collaborating closely with companies as their updates are launched.

Looks like HP has most of their Vista drivers done...

Have you tried letting Windows install its own built in drivers and rebooting?

I got a Lexmark 730 to work that way after the website claimed no drivers were available for Vista, and the XP and XP x64 wouldn't install no matter who I fought the permissions.
