Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Sharing printer between vista and xp os

I connect my brother MFC 240 c printer to the desktop which is using XP SP1. My laptop has VISTA HOME OS. and has a wireless connection to my desktop thru router. The printer is shared

My laptop is able to detect the printer. However it can not connect as it is looking for the printer driver for VISTA in the desktop. I can not load the printer driver for VISTA on my desktop which is running XP SP1. Neither was there a browse button in my laptop for me to redirect search when VISTA is looking for printer driver when connecting to the printer

Is there a solution?

Hi have a nice day.
I think tranfering your job to desktop first, and then sending to printer, is a solution for now.

I need driver


You can use the full driver and software package of Vista! You download the "Full Driver & Software Package" (x32 or x64) from the official Brother site, unpack and install it. There are two folder:

1. Data
2. Setup 5840CN

Now, open "Setup5840CN", then the Language folder and run "Setup.exe" in compatibility mode (Vista or Vista SP1).

I have a dell 946 all in one printer... everything works but the scanner... I just purchased a new computer that has vista and my old computer had xp... worked fine on old puter... any suggestions


You need a new driver from Dell that funtions with Vista. If you have Vista X64 OS then this function may not be available for a while longer as the driver for the scanner is still in development. There is a significant difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

I'm running into networking problems with my Vista X64 OS and a printer on my home network that connects through XP Pro on a desktop computer with a 32-bit OS.

A Windoze Vista 32-bit laptop has no problems with this printer.

Network x86 driver support on Vista 64 bit OS (Samsung Ml-2510)


That's right. You'll have to install the XP driver on an XP PC, and share it to the other XP machines that way, or Install the driver on each PC individually -you can't share a Vista driver with XP PC's.

Taking Time to Print


that is a network problem between the laptop and the PC. Look for your network settings and adjust them.
Use a tool like pctools to identify your network problems. Vista and Xp sometimes have a problem

Sharing printer


May your printer doesn't fit to your operating system because Windows Vista is one of the complicated OS and hard to find installer or software to fit it in. Try to Replace your operating system that same as your brother have. maybe it can fix your problem!
