I was attempting to install my Lexmark8300 printer onto my computer (with Windows Vista) and I get the "Not a valid Win32 Application" message. What changes could be made to my drivers to fix...


Hello, Are you on Vista 32bit or Vista 64bit? Sounds like you either have a corrupt installer or you are trying to install incompatible 32bit software on a 64bit system.
Download the drivers from here (Lexmark links): 32bit 64bit

Where can I download Windows Vista?


Hi.

Windows Vista is a Microsoft Operative System, and cannot be downloaded, it can only be purchased, as it must be installed using a valid license number that can only be found on a genuine Microsoft certificate of authenticity.

The Operative system is the main resident software to manage computer resource and interface with the user.
Once installed, the operative system will allow the user to use a computer. A computer without an operative system cannot be used.

Other examples of modern operative systems are: Windows 98, windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OS, Linux.

Microsoft, that made Vista, does not sell the software directly. Vista can only be purchased from third party distributors. Here an example: purchase vista.

For this reasons you will not find any Vista download available from Microsoft.

Different versions of Vista where made available for download for testing purpose. This will allow you the download of the full Vista installer file, that must be recorded onto CD after downloading.
Here a download:Windows Vista Download - Softpedia.

The file available on the link above will still not be enough to install Vista if you do not have a valid version of Vista purchased or installed before on the computer. You will still be asked for a valid installation key during setup. If your computer is licensed for Vista, the key will be printer on a sticker located on the computer. The installation key is composed by 5 groups of five characters codes, like in this example: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.
If you have no valid installation key, then you will need to purchase a genuine Windows Vista.

If you decide to upgrade to Vista you can check if you computer can support Microsoft Vista by using the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor.

If you instead have Vista already installed, and you do not need Vista installer disk, but you only need to download Vista updates, you can use the following links:

Windows Vista home page

Microsoft Windows Update

Microsoft Download Center

We recently installed Windows 7 onto our computer. My Canon Selphy CP760 Compact Photo Printer does now not work. What can I do about that? We previously had windows Vista.


Every time you install a new operating system, or reinstall one, you have to install the printer drivers. Printer drivers never come with the operating system files like hard drive drivers, video drivers, audio drivers, network drivers and stuff like that. OS manufacturers know that you are going to need that stuff no matter what, and for the most part, there are not that many manufacturers. But printers are different, you always have to install them. Here is the best printer driver I can find for your printer with Windows 7: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/selphy_compact_photo_series/selphy_cp760#DriversAndSoftware

Please note: This is a 32 bit driver (the link on the page) and Canon does not have a windows 7 - 64 bit driver yet. If you need a 64 bit driver, use the Vista 64 bit driver and install it in compatibility mode. Windows 7 compatibility mode is excellent...HP still does not have a Windows 7 driver for my printer, and I run mine off of a Vista driver and it works great. If you try to install it straight, it won't install, because most vista software is stricly Vista compatible. You have to open the folder, find the setup file that begins the install, and right click, and check compatibility options. You get a box that opens and you can check exactly what version of Vista with exactly what service pack...and be sure to check the little box that says install as administrator. If the install fails, and you can't find how to do this, do the install again...if the install fails I think it is 2 or 3 times...Windows will automatically pop up the box for you. Windows 7 is very intuitive....I LOVE IT!

I WOULD LIKE TO INSTALL LEXMARK 125 ON MY COMPUTER BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE DISK ANY LONGER.


If you are trying to install your Lexmark x125 printer on Windows XP, you should be able to visit the Lexmark website http://lexmark.com/... and click download now, then run and open the file you downloaded. That should install the drivers needed to print from Windows XP.
If you have a newer computer and are running Windows Vista or some other operating system, you may need to replace your printer as there do not appear to be drivers available for other systems (there is a Windows 2000 driver available also though).

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.


In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.
