    Installing the printer

    I have Windows Vista and I was trying to install my current printer. Its an
    HP Officejet 4315 all in one. Everytime I try to install it; it gets halfway
    and then it comes up with an error message telling me that I cannot use the
    'run as' to install this program.

    I knew that the Windows Vista has a new download that you have to use in
    order to install the printer, but I can't find it anywhere.

    Hi,

    Unplug your printer, remove any old software inc drivers. Download and
    install vista driver from here

    plug your printer back in and let Windows do the rest.

    As always, you find the latest driver package for your printer at the
    printer manufacturer's website (not Microsoft's website).

    Yours can be found at:
