I just bought a wireless printer. Was able to hook it up to my desktop, no problem. Went to hook it up to my laptop(vista) and it won't install. Getting an error message 0XE0000100. Called there tech support and they tried to walk me through it. While installing the software, a message came up and said that they firewall may block this function. I told her that I turned off the firewall. She said contact the manufacture of the computer to see if there are other firewalls? Seemed odd. Anyway, HELP. THANKS!

What operating system do you have on your desktop? Is the wireless printer compatible with vista?

You can just add it manually.

1. Download the vista driver for the printer from the manufacturer's website.
2. On the computer go to "Printers"
3. Click "Add Printer" at the top
4. Click "Add Local Printer" then click on "Create New Port" > Standard TCP/IP
5. Get the IP Address from the printer (there's a wireless menu where you can get it)
6. Type that address into the "Add Printer" wizard and click next
7. Vista will detect the printer and begin installing it
8. After a little while, you should get a pop-up requesting the driver so click on "Have Disk" and go to the location where you downloaded it before
9. The installation should finish and you'll be all set.

Hope that helps!
