Assuming you are using 32-bit and not 64-bit Vista. If it's 64, you are S.O.L.:
http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1420309&SiteID=17

But you maybe S.O.L. no matter what. Note what it says on the Lexmark site for X85 driver downloads page:
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Lexmark+X85

Vista is not listed at all as having an X85 driver. XP, yes. Vista, no. Now if you are using some X85n (where n is some digit value) model, then you may be in luck. Look here:
http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_924205346_924205387_en,00.html

Search on the page for "X85" to get to the part of the list that has them. But if that isn't the case, I think you are hosed and will need to go get a later-model printer.

How to run microsoft visual 6.0 because i download and i can't open so it is not useful


1. check the compatibility with the operating system > if the program is not compatible with the Operating system ( Windows XP, Vista etc) then it may not operate properly.
check your documentation for setup and installation of the software.
2. Some software downloaded is corrupted from the server and may need to be downloaded a 2nd time from a non corrupted site to be properly installed.

Make older programs run in this version of Windows (from help section in Windows 7)


Most programs written for Windows Vista also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, either manually or by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

getcontent.aspx?assetid=745c7204-cf9f-46fb-a86c-98d4b9c644cf&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us Go to the Windows website to watch the video. (1:26)

If changing the settings doesn't fix the problem, go to the program manufacturer's website to see if there is an update for the program.
Warning

  • Do not use the Program Compatibility troubleshooter on older antivirus programs, disk utilities, or other system programs because it might cause data loss or create a security risk.

To run the Program Compatibility troubleshooter
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.
Tip

  • You can also open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by right-clicking a program's icon or shortcut and then clicking Troubleshoot compatibility.

?id=microsoft.windows.resources.collapsearrow?id=microsoft.windows.resources.expandarrow To change compatibility settings manually

To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the program icon, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.

Resolution


Installing on a Windows Vista computer

Creator 2010 requires a minimum of Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for installation. You can either perform a Windows Update (recommended) or install Service Pack 1 for Vista here.


Installing on a Windows 7 computer

The issue might be caused by the Creator 2010 setup package running in Windows Vista compatibility mode on Windows 7. Please use the following steps to turn off Vista compatibility mode for the Creator 2010 setup package:
  1. Right-click on the setup package and choose Properties.

  2. Click on the Compatibility tab in the Properties window.

  3. In the Compatibility mode section, uncheck the box that is labeled Run the program in compatibility mode for Windows Vista.

  4. Click OK to save the changes.

  5. Re-run Creator 2010 the setup package.

Describe your scansoft paperport deluxe 9 windows Vista printer drivers Problem Can not install why


Hi there and welcome here

Take a look here :
http://reviews.cnet.com/document-management/scansoft-paperport-deluxe-v/1707-3522_7-30787056.html

It does not describe windows Vista, so I think it is not compatible with windows Vista, so there is 2 thing you can do :

1. you can see if it runs in compatibility mode, and you do it in this way : Highlight the program icon on the desktop or in the start folder, choose properties, select the last tab, choose compatibility mode with windows xp and try to open the program

2. If it is not working maybe you can upgrade to a newer version, for that you have to go to the product homepage . Normally you find a link in the program where you can go to the product homepage.

Hope this can help
Have a nice Christmas over there

Lexmark all in one printer don't install on vista. is there a patch


You may want to see if the Printer is actually compatible with Windows Vista first before you try anything else.

If your Printer is Listed Below, then unfortunately it will not run on your system unless you format the machine and downgrade to Windows XP. (Or obviously you can wait until the device is supported, but to be honest that could be months, years).

Mustek 1200 ub plus scanner will not work on xp it wont even let me install software


ok first off any time you install a software or program if you have a virus prot, firewall and popup software on your computer you need to disable it first ok. also you can also do a program compatibility test to see whether or not the program will be compatable to run on your computer if it doesnt then you will have to go to a tech ask him what you need to do to make compatible you might have to download a driver and update everything for it to work, because everything you install as in hardware like that needs a specific driver ok.

Can u help?


IF there is a compatibility issue Then why not use the compatibility wizard.
Click on your start button /ALL programs & then upto the accessories menu & then click on the Program Compatibility Wizard.
Try it
It is a well missed program But sometimes you never know.
You could also do a google search to see if there is other people with the same problem
Or you could search for a fix
for eg.
Vista Compatibility error fix.
