    Can't install printer software with Vista for Lexmark X6100 series. Lexmark
    website does not offer printer updates for Vista. Using Vista Beta 2 32 bit,
    build 5384.

  2. (crosspost to Vista Hardware added--OP won't be able to see Printing etc. through the portal being used)

    Are you posting through this portal?

    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.mspx

    FYI We think that there is an error in the link provided for its
    Printing, Faxing, & Scanning menu item.

    E.g. instead of posting in the IE General newsgroup as you are now
    you would be better off posting in a Vista specific newsgroup.
    There is a Vista specific newsgroup for that topic but unfortunately
    it can not be accessed through the above portal.

    Here is an excerpt from a recent post which may help
    you find an alternative newsgroup in which to post
    printer issues more effectively.

    In case it helps I will crosspost my reply to the Vista Hardware NG
    which you will be able to switch to by using the link in the headers
    of my reply.


    <excerpt>

    The first one, "Printing Faxing & Scanning" is just obviously wrong.
    It could be going here instead: microsoft.public.windows.vista.print_fax_scan
    Even if that didn't exist I think microsoft.public.windows.vista.hardware_devices
    would have made more sense than pointing them at the IE NG.

    Unfortunately the provided portal isn't aware of that first newsgroup
    so you would either have to use NNTP (e.g. for your spiffy
    new Windows Mail app enter in an IE Address bar:
    news://msnews.microsoft.com/
    and then type: c.w vist
    to see all the Vista newsgroups)

    or find a different portal which does
    include the others, such as this one:

    http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx

    then open the menu tree at:
    [English]
    [Windows]
    [Windows Vista]

    I think that using (or at least being aware of) that menu tree would give
    Vista users a better perspective about where they are posting and how
    their posts might be received, particularly if they aren't clear about
    identifying their context when posting to common newsgroups.


    FYI

    Hi, i have Lexmark X6150 and their driver from lexmarks homepage
    will not install. I email tech support and the response was

    Dear Jody,

    Thanks for using our electronic support to assist you with this issue.

    To the best of my knowledge, there are currently no plans to develop Windows
    XP Vista drivers to support this model. Thank you for notifying us of this
    request. I will forward your comments on to our development department, as it
    is only through input from you, our customers, that we can make these
    important business decisions


    my reply will be if i have to buy a new printer for a driver that they should
    supply it will not be a lexmark and i not they will lose three refills a year
    on ink cartrigages.

    I was very sad to find out that i could not use vista with my printer
    some smart printer make will jump on the band wagon first


    thanks again
