Re: install lexmark Z45, don't have set up disk...
Lexmark states they do not support the Z45 for Vista but after hours no days of messing around I was finally able to get my Z45 to work with the Lexmark Z42 driver that was supplied with Vista. Plug the Z45 in, go to add printer, select Lexmark and Z42 Colorjet on the USB port and you should be using printing in no time.
