Re: windows vista

Is common for Vista, not many software companies have reported Patches to Microsoft for Vista. I ended up having a dual boot with XP to use my printer.

I am installing Kodak ESP-C310 All In One Printer on my home computer. If I want to use this printer for more than one computer (I have 3), do I need to load it on all three? I am using a wireless setup.

For best results, yes. I'll assume you're using a Microsoft operating system. You'll have to "share" the printer from the computer it is connected to by setting the appropriate options in the printer settings. Then, on the other networked computers, you'll have to add a "network printer" and provide the drivers when prompted.
Note: There are other ways to do this as well. For instance, if you router has a usb port, it may be capable of sharing the printer for the network or if all your computers have wifi NICs, that printer supports simply browsing for it wirelessly and will install itself if you're running Windows Vista and up. XP will probably still ask for the driver.

Instaling network printer from main computer

On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
