Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Are you downloading the correct driver?
You should install a full driver, not an update, because updates sometimes require that a driver is already installed.
If your system is Vista 32-bit, you should be downloading and installing iP1700 Printer Driver Ver. 2.00 (Windows Vista/XP/2000)
Name of the file: ip1700vst200ej.exe
Size: 4.29 MB
Go to to CANON support homepage for your printer:
Under the "Drivers & Downloads" tab, select your OS and then click the file link under the "Driver" section.
Read and follow the installation instructions in the next page.
Do not connect the printer to the computer prior to installing the printer driver. Do it only if and when the installation process tells you to do so or after it is concluded.
After installing the driver, you can also download and install the software for your printer and OS available from the software section of the downloads page.
For more insformation on how to install the driver and software, make sure you read the FAQS:
8. How do I install the software / driver - Windows?
9. How do I install using a downloaded driver?
To access this FAQS, click the "Support and Service" tab on CANON support homepage refered to above and then click on the 'Frequently Asked Questions" link.

Did you do a upgrade to vista from xp? Or is the computer with vista a different computer? The reason why I ask is if you did an upgrade the old drivers and software for xp may still be in the system. The first thing I would do is go into the device manager and remove the printer and un-install any software for the printer. Re-boot the computer and windows vista should detect the new hardware. I would let vista check online for the driver and install it. If it cant't find one the choose the driver you downloaded online. After that then try installing the printer software. Also make sure that when you go to print something that your printer is set up as the default printer.
