Hi Folks....I have Vista Home Premium 32bit and Im trying to set up my all in one printer. It's a HP PSC 1610v and I've got the latest Vista drivers from HP and they are installed. My problem is the scanner portion of the drivers won't load. I get an error message: "Windows could not load the installer for image. Contact your hardware vendor for assistance." HP says this is the only solution for this unit and Vista. I've tried un-installing and reinstalling, no luck. I also noticed that I seem to be missing Windows Image Acquisition from services, any way to get it up and running? I believe I had it in services before, not sure what happen to it. Any and all help are greatly appreciated.
Are you gonna drink that?

well, i've been using Vista for a while now and one thing is for sure:even if they tell u that those drivers r for vista or any software are vista compatible u will probably still face a problem with them, vista copmatibility drivers n softwares are still under developpement so keep updating ur drivers all the time.

HP released drivers a while back that allowed limited functionality for Vista - is this one of those drivers? If so, then you're basically stuck with what you've got until HP decides to release a more updated version.
