In Vista in order to install most software you need to right click on the setup file and Click on run as administrator. Then another screen will show up and press allow to continue. This will work most of the time.

I have been trying for over 4hours to down load my Kodak ESP printer soft ware

Abandon the download and start all over again after rebooting your computer - sometimes things get gummed up. Then try again. Is your broadband connection on everything else?

Perform a computer update to acquire the missing prorgams. Then allow the computer diagnose the type of codes required. usually a computer may diagnose the conditiion requesting a new driver. Howver, the computer requires a new prorgam in the situation that the manufacturer never produce replacement drivers but made new program altogether. The computer may have requested missing codes may simply require acquirin a new prorgam from retail.

Almost all manufacturers provide the drivers you need to download pictures from your camera free of charge. If you just plug your camera into a computer with internet access windows should automatically detect it and download the proper drivers if it does not have them.

I need the soft ware to connect the computer to the printer

If it didn't come with the printer, go to the printer manufacturer's web site and look for a "driver" to download - for that model printer for your version of Windows.
