    A little more info please. If you are trying to report the error, tell us
    exactly the error as opposed to "...and missing something..".

    : )

    .. I have the same printer and it works fine and I have the printer hooked up
    to a XP system in a shared mode.

    There are multiple drivers on the Canon site - make sure you took the one
    for Vista.

    the error message is
    the driver installation file for this device is missing a necassary entry
    this maybe because the INF file was written for windows 95 or later please
    contact the vendor

    hope that helps a bit more
