Canon Lasershot LBP-1120 compatibility with Microsoft Vista

Hi all, I recently purchased a new laptop with the new Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. I also have a Canon Lasershot LBP-1120 laser printer. I cannot install the software provided with my printer onto my laptop. I have searched for support from canon but i cant seem to find anything that works. I downloaded the driver from canon but it failed to operate. What am i doing wrong? Many thanks

    Hi again,

    Thanks for the advise. The driver for windows vista didn't work - it installed fine, but no test page printed and no documents print either. I tried using the XP driver, however that simply didn't install. I HATE vista!!!!!!

    I also thought that there may have been a difference between the european driver and the australian one (im in Sydney, Australia) so i tried using that one too, but the same result: the driver will install, but the printer doesnt respond to anything.

    Thank you

I have had the LBP1120 working for 12 mths off a laptop running Vista Home Premium, then last week it just stopped being recognised by Vista. Plug and Pray, nothing. What I did was download the driver from Canon's site, expanded it on to the desktop. Went to Control Panels > Printers - Add printer Instead of using the default in the drop down menu as LPT1, I selected USB001 Virtual Port, it then asked for the driver, pointed it to the desktop folder and it now works. It just didn't like being installed as LPT1.
Hope this helps

You are just an american idiots, we, russians, can solve every problem just drinking Vodka:) Hit the printer by strong men's hand and it will work or die! At me it worked! Still KALASHNIKOV and TOPOL-M!!!

Posted on Oct 30, 2008


I have a temporary solution. When i put the USB lead into my pc (Vista), it asked me to put the installation disk into the computer. 10 minutes later it came up with a load of drivers which it had found on the disk. Sorry that this part is a bit vague: but i just clicked inbstall on the first driver there and then the printer worked! Unfortunately though, whenever i print something off an error message appears. (but it does print!)

The drivers for Vista are only 32 bit (and so are most of the drivers that people are having trouble with) and we have upgraded to 64 bit Vista and printer manafacturers are not releaseing 64 bit drivers so buy a new printer

Hi Is the driver you're trying from this page: If not then try this one. If this is the one you are trying and it's not working then try the windows xp driver from the same site. Please let me know if this works. Good luck
