    I am having the same issue which is driving me mad! I have shared my printer in XP and added the printer in Vista as a local printer (which I believe is the only way printers can be shared in Vista) All Firewall settings are set to enable sharing but I keep getting the message "Communication not avaiable, the printer cannot communicate with the computer" If anyone can help I'd be really grateful. My printer is a Lexmark P4350.

HP Photosmart 8450 printer and Vista not compatible.


Hello,
You will need to update your Microsoft Publisher program and you should just update the entire MS Office Suite to be compatiable with windows vista.
