Getting the Duplex Attachment to Work with Vista

My printer was working great with my old Windows XP system but now that I am running Vista on my new computer the printer will no longer duplex (I bought the duplexing attachment). Any suggestions how I can get duplexing to work again? Thanks...

    I have an HP OfficeJet 6110xi. I went to the HP website and made sure that I have the curren printer driver. There is a note on the HP website that the Vista driver doesn't support duplexing on this printer and that they have no plans for an updated driver.

The duplexer defaults to "not installed" in many cases. To correct this go to the printers folder, right click on the printer, Run as Administrator, Properties, Device Settings, Installable Options and set the Duplex Unit to Installed, Apply, OK.

Click here for details to get a patch to fix the problem of the back side printing upside down on Vista using the auto duplex unit on many HP deskjet printers.

What printer do you have?
brand and model?
do you has installed the newest driver and utility for vista operating system?
do you know that Vista and XP are incompatible in terms of drivers?

Vista has many drivers for a lots of printers, but these drivers are "generic driver". The generic driver is a small driver, an incomplete driver, and has a limited functions.

My printer Canon LBP 2900 won't work on my new computer windows 7


There are none and I am sorry but there probably never will be, See this is the major problem with Win 7 anything over a year old generally just isn't supported.
Here is how to Install them so they work. Download your XP driver you wish to install. If it's in a zip/rar file then extract it to your desktop. You should have a simple .exe file sitting on your desktop to install the drivers, as normal for XP. Right click the .exe file and select "Properties". Then select the tab called "Compatibility" Now check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" Make sure "Windows XP Service Pack 2" is highlighted. Now apply the settings and run the installer. This should work for most drivers, but not all Install and run as Administrator.

Need printer driver for Windows Vista


It' also listed at Microsoft as incompatable with vista. Best you can do is get a cheap old used machine that runs XP and set it up as a print server for your network, (set it up with printer sharing) send all of your documents thru it for printing. Sorry it's probably not the answer you were looking for but it is the only solution I've found for mine. I bought an old P3 machine running XP for $5.00 at a garage sale and it's working great as a print server.

Duplex not recognised


You need to set the duplexer to installed. For Vista this would be done as follows: go to the Printers folder, Right Click on the 5550, Run as Administrator, Properties, (continue), Device Settings, Installable Options, Duplex unit (set to Installed), Apply, OK.

Once you have done this in Vista the duplexer will work but the back side may print upside down regardless of the settings. This can be corrected with a patch available here.

Duplex printing


Greetings...

From the HP site...

This download includes a Print Driver only. This driver makes it possible to use the basic functions for the printer. HP will not be providing a Full Featured Vista Software and Driver for this product; therefore, some functionality may be lost when you use this product with Windows Vista.

What you can try to do is...

Uninstall the Vista driver and install the XP driver... this has worked for some HP printers...
