    I've tried installing from both the CD and from an internet download but get the same error.

    I did succesfully install on another computer that has XP.

    This PC has Vista home edition.

    It seems to stop when trying to update the registry.

    Well sorry to say but there is no driver for your printer for Vista but there is a way to install a XP driver in vista please follow the below steps -

    1. Download the respective installer package for the driver you wish to install on Windows Vista. The installer package is located on the original manufacturer's installation disk that came with the device you're installing. It may also be available from the device manufacturer's website.

    2. Use your mouse to right-click on the installer package for the driver.

    3. Click "Properties" from the pop-up menu. A preferences window will appear on the screen.

    4. Click the tab that reads "Compatibility."

    5. Click the check box next to "Run this progam in compatibility mode for...."
    6. Select "Windows XP" from the drop-down menu and press the "OK" button to apply the changes and close the window.
    7. Install XP drivers in Vista. Double-click the XP driver's installer package. Windows Vista will now open the driver in Vista Compatibility Mode. The Windows Vista operating system will tell the XP driver that it is running on a Windows XP machine, thus allowing the installation process to continue where it would otherwise have stopped.

    Good Luck!!

Installed printer will not print

I found a vista driver for a Pixma ip 2600 and downloaded it. My printer now works but the black ink doesn't. Don't know if it's a driver issue or otherwise. It might be worth a try for you. There are no available vista drivers for the ip3000.

I have installed cannon pixma ip 2600 on my vista and it will not print says an error occured

Some time ago I helped I friend with a simular problem, a Canon printer and Windows Vista. An error message came up when trying to install the printer driver. I looked through the windows register using regedit.exe and deleted all occurancies of Canon. (Be careful when doing this) . After doing so I restarted the PC, downloaded a fresh driver (by saving it to disk), doubleclicked to unpack it and finally installed. This might help you. Good luck!
