I have a PC running Vista HP/32 with a Canon IP4300 installed via USB, specified as shared. No issues on that PC.
I also have a new laptop with Win 7 HP/64 which when we try to add the printer it can see the the printer, but says it can't find a driver. When we direct connect the IP4300 to the laptop, it installs the driver fine (driver is embedded in Win 7 so no disk is required).
When we put the printer back on the Vista PC, and try to add the IP4300 again as a network printer it continues to say it can't find a driver.
All other network aspects, sharing files/folder between the 2 pc's, are working 100% okay.
Is this because win 7 it trying to load a Vista driver? Can we load the driver manually, if so, where can we find the driver?
thanks for any advice here.
