Compatible with Microsoft Vista?

Hi. I'm thinking of buying this all in one printer but see that there may be some incompatibilities with MS Vista? Is that still the case? Thanks in advance...

    Compatibility issues with this printer continue.iHp techs in India cannot fix it (spent many days on this). It causes various applications to suddenly quit. For a while by choosing to run another printer as my default printer, and then selecting the hp printer manually each time I printed, seemed to do the trick (cumbersome but not too bad). However, after several recent "updates" the printer causes the applications to close unexpectedly again. I cannot recommend this printer, which pains me, because when it works it is great.

Hi Khalsa007,
I am using the HP 7280 All In One printer. I trusted sentece on the package saying "compatibe with Vista". In fact it is not!
Installed as a LAN pronter and after 2 months working fine, the driver does not find the printer in the network any more. No chance to solve it. Had a 6 week contact to HP support after installing latest driver versions from HP website with no success. Finally HP support recommended to reinstall Vista. So, I did. Right after reinstallation: The same problem.
You can find lots of threads in a number of channels reporting the same situation.
My suggestion: Nice machine with XP. But hands off this printer with Vista!

Greetings,
RF

I have license product key of microsoft office professional but i used cd of 2007 standard office, not fully activated, im having problem of activating. thanks


Hi dumindinklen
There nothing you can do but buying a legal key at Microsoft's or buying a compatible cd in a recognized shop .
Or you can download a full software that performs as well as MS Office but is FREE : http://download.openoffice.org/index.html . Open Office is also compatible with MS Office and can open and edit all MS Office documents .
Best regards ,

Microsoft office


Vista is the latest, so it can handle the newest things, to the things that were compatible with Windows XP. So, it can run almost anything.

It is natural that Microsoft is going to make Vista fully compatible with its old software. You can even install the crappy old OfficeXP or Office '98

Compatible with Microsoft Vista?


Hi,

Not to worry, this printer is Compatible with Vista, but when it comes to Duplex Printing (Two-sided Printing) there might be problem, because in Vista Duplex printing doesn't works well.
Apart from that, this printer is the Best in the HP Photosmart Series.

Thanks
