Download the software for Vista for you're Canon PIXMA MX700.
Click on this link.
From time to time it's suggested to check the web site for updated printer software. XP or Vista. To keep printer's & other device running, it is also suggested to keep you're windows up to date. Run windows update service. Most (Not all), printer Mfg's warrant their printer for 1 year. If you feel you're printer is faulty please contact Cannon.

Good Luck!

Vista can not work on those older systems. change it to xp-os, then re-load the printer driver software.

You will need to download and install the vista driver for this to work on your vista computer. XP & Vista drivers are not the same and that is the reason it will work on the XP computer but not on the Vista computer. Driver should be available from the hardware manufacturers website. Hope this helps.

I bought Printmaster Platinum 16 and used it with XP just fine, but Vista won't let me install it

I understand that most old xp programs wont work on Vista. You might call the mfg. to see if they have a diver that would work with Vista.
Or some kind of other fix. I dought that they Have. New printer with vista software is probably in your future.

Updating a printer with Vista.

Hp has a new driver package available from its website. However, it's best to install the basic printer driver under vista, as the software package does not work properly (even though it says it's for vista).
