Thanks to this site I've finished assembling my new computer and installed the software.
The problem now is that I'm running Vista 64 bit when on my old computer I had been running Windows XP 32 bit.
I have a printer that I really like and don't want to get rid of it but it isn't supported on Vista 64 bit.
I found a site that has managed to fix the problem by using the printer on a network but had a lot of difficulty getting it to work..
Essentially, now I'm using the computer with the Vista 64 bit as my home attached to the printer, and I have a laptop using Vista 32 bit which I was hoping to set the printer up on as described in the instructions.. Can anyone provide some inisight as to what is the problem.

The last “issue” with x64 Vista has been getting my Konika Minolta PagePro 1350W laser printer to work. My HP PhotoSmart C5180n works like a CHAMP in x64. Vista detects the IP, installs the new drivers, and we’re good to go. The 1350W, my workhorse printer, just sits there.
Now, I’m sure I would have caught this earlier if, well, I ran the Vista Readiness Analyzer or something, but… heh, what’s the fun in that? According to Konica Minolta’s web site, Vista will have a x86 driver, but there has never and will never be a x64 bit driver. Well, that’s pretty poor.
Here’s how I worked around it:
