vista driver for deskjet f2180 on Windows 8.1

I have a new Windows 8.1 desktop (64 bit), a Vista laptop (32 bit), and an HP F2180 printer/scanner. F2180 is connected to desktop via USB, is shared, and works fine from W81. I can't get it connected to the Vista laptop.

On the desktop, when I check the box "x86 Type 3 - User Mode", I am told to find the driver. Any idea what the file name and location are?

TIA.

Hello there TIA, Welcome to the Forums! I hope you enjoy your experience:smileyhappy:

 

 

I noticed your post about your Deskjet F2180 not functioning on your Windows Vista system. I would recommend (from the Vista laptop), running the full driver installation. This should install the driver properly on your laptop.

 

Here is the link to the driver: HP Deskjet F2100 and F4100 Full Feature Software and Driver

 

 

 

I hope my post was informational!

Have a great day and thanks for posting:smileyhappy:

Hi Rainbow7000, thanks for taking the time to respond.

The problem is not running the printer from my Vista machine. It is getting my Windows 8.1 machine (which has the printer attached) to properly allow the Vista machine to use it as a shared printer. I have already installed the HP software suite on the Vista machine.

Regards,

Selby.

 

P.S. TIA = thanks in advance. :smileyhappy:
