HP 1012 laserjet

Hi. This is my first post. Please be gentle! <g>

I have a new toshiba laptop (A135-S4487) which I LOVE!

It came with Vista Home Premium. Also Windows Live OneCare purchased and
installed. I have a little wireless network with a desktop running Windows xp
Media Center hardwired. My old laptop, also a toshiba run windows xp. I have
a print server (netgear) so that I don't have to the desktop powered on all
the time to print from the old toshiba.

I have an HPlaserjet 1012 printer.

I could not set it up through Vista. HP does not have the new driver. Vista
driver does not work. The CD stops installing even with User account control
turned off.

I WAS able, through this community, to set the printer to work on the vista
laptop through the print server and the desktop - I installed the new port
and it is named for the desktop. But it has to be powered ON for me to print.

Is there another way to do this so my desktop does not have to powered ON?

Thank you very much!

Sorry for the wordiness - just wanted to be clear.

You might try not letting the CD run on autoplay but to open it in My
Computer and right mouse click on the autorun.exe file and select Run
as Administrator.

No idea if that would help in your case but it has helped me install
other non-VISTA applications.

Actually, that is the way I have to run it - it does not start in autorun on
its own - it crashes later when it cannot find the print server it think

But thanks!

I use hp 1012 with a dlink wireless printserver. In my case, I setup the printer just as I would do in XP, except that I have to use the vista's hp 1015 driver. No other softwares, or other drivers. After several usage, I get the error 'unsupported personality'. Then I have to turn the power off for couple seconds, and turn it back on, and it works fine for a while again.
