The Vista drivers should work fine (perhaps selecting Compatibility mode to install them) or you could download drivers from Microsoft's Update site here.

Still stuck... Microsoft says the printer should be compatible with Windows 7.  I vistited

 

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1142684&lang=en

 and I downloaded the Vista Drivers ( Bsize_CDA-Full_NEtwork.enu.exe ) and When I extract the file I get the message "The Operating System on the computer is not supported. The installation cannot continue until this is resloved."

 

When I ran the HP Printer Check it detected detected the following:
Connected Printer:  HP Photosmart Pro b9180/b9180gp
Operating System:  Microsoft Windows
Connection Port:  USB
 

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Try the link I gave above.  You will need to look for the version that matches your operating system, 32 bit or 64 bit.  The Microsoft Update site requires IE, Firefox or Chrome will not work on that site.

I'm having the same issue. Perhaps I'm missing something, but when I click on the link I get 5 pages of very vaguely labeled files that predominately look the same or very similar. There aren't any files that look like the full driver set. When I download the Vista driver from HP, I get a message that indicates I am running XP (I have the Win 7 RC) and get the same message the original poster got. When I download and try installing the XP driver, I get a message identifying the OS as version 6.xxxxx and installing cannot continue.

 

Can you provide a more detailed explanation of how to use/install the files listed in your link?

 

I should add that I use IE8 and a 32bit OS...
