Spooler driver problem

I recently upgraded to windows vista business and had my laptop data transfered. Went well but unfortunately we can't get the printer to connect and stay connected. The tech at my job mentioned that we need to download a driver upgrade and this should solve it.

I go to Canon download center and there are hundreds of options. Not sure which is the correct one. My laptop is Dell Vostro 1700.

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 560S with Windows 7. Our present computer has Windows 2000. I bought a Belkin Easy Transfer Cable and note on the packaging it states for Vista and XP. Will it work for...

Unfortunately, Windows Easy Transfer is not supported on Windows 2000. So I would suggest you to return this cable back and use the manual method of transfer of data from one computer to another. Thanks. Abhishek

Which Windows Vista Edition are you?

If you are upgrading XP to Vista, make sure you backup and have the program "Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor"

Download Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor:

Be Sure to Backup with a removable media such as CD's, Floppy Disks or USB Flash Drives, External Hard Drivers.

Windows Vista Editions:

Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise

These also include 64-bit.

Lastly, if you have XP and if it's Vista Capable, you don't need to use the upgrade advisor, you are allowed to use any, but you must download the drivers after upgrade.

I bought a new laptop from Dell. My old on is a desktop from Dell. I have a Belkin transfer cable. It is asking for a transfer key number. what is that????????

Please note that your cable will support below givne O/S check at your end.

One destination PC running Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

One source PC running Windows® XP (32- or 64-bit) or Windows Vista® (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

For Example two Pcs 1 is Xp and other pcs is Windows 7, then try to connect between both .

Another one more option is there for transfering the data between two systems either laptop or Desktop by a cross cable (LAN CABLE), buy a cross cable from shop and insert into RJ45 Socket (i.e lan socket) the try to transfer the datas.

Does Easy Transfer work for Programs, i.e. MS Office?

No, you cannot transfer programs, only data (such as documents, photos, etc.) You'll need to reinstall the programs.

Print spooler crashes on Vista business

How do you connect the printer? Try to do it manually. Instead of searching for the printer on the network, give the path manually.
For ex.: \\name_of_the_server\name_of_the_shared_printer.
