Most of the times, windows Vista has the drivers required for the printer. The problem is that sometimes it could be bugged.
I strongly suggest that you install the HP drivers from the Hp.com website (install CDs would do the trick)
Be sure you install the Windows Vista drivers and it should show up just fine.
If you are already using the latest drivers from HP let me know.
It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.
If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.
As you might all ready know, this printer is not supported by Vista,
pasible solution: - if you have another "old" computer, you could install your printer on that, and share it, that way you can printe via the other computer.
in case you want drivers for all other software, here is the link.

your printer currently uses either a PCL5, PCL6 or PostScript XP driver
you may download the current XP driver from HP to provide printing
Windows Vista printing is very similar to Windows XP and most print
drivers supported in XP environment for LaserJet printers may also work
in the Windows Vista operating system.
If you do a new, clean install of Vista in 2018, one would be missing hundreds of updates from Microsoft that would be very hard if not impossible to get. Some of those updates might apply to software that you want to use in conjunction with Windows Vista. And if it is an older PC, you might not be able to find driver support for the particular make/model, and Vista might not have the drivers you need. How many times have you heard someone say, "I just reinstalled Vista, but now I am missing drivers?"
This could be your trouble, because even if your Vista updated all the way up to April 2017, you could still be missing HP updates provided by HP/Microsoft through Windows Update.
Since Microsoft has not supported Vista since April 2017, I would recommend not using it anymore in 2018.
Here you go. It's on a different HP server. It came on Google:
