  2. The reason this is happening is because the said program is not vista
    compatible.

    One question for you, "is your printer supported out of the box". If so then
    you will not need to install the print monitor as you can check your ink
    levels from the main printer dialogue box.

    In the main printer dialogue box the ink levels are greyed out.

  4. Is there a button that says "get ink levels"?

    If so press it and it should tell you how much ink you have.

    I have an Epson R200 printer and when I installed Vista, Vista-compatible
    drivers were automatically installed. You are correct that, in the
    preferences dialog, you can click on 'Get Ink Levels' and they will pop right
    up (they are grayed out until I click on Get Ink Levels.)

    I like very much using the Epson Print CD app, and I was able to get it to
    install (using the Compatibility Tab in Properties) and have used it.

    It would be nice if we could get Vista-compatible versions of the Print
    Monitor and Epson Print CD. Changing out the print cartridges is very awkward
    just pushing the buttons on top and trying to remember what to do next (g). I
    miss my little 'guide' that would show me pictures and tell me what to do
    next.

    There isn't a "get ink levels" button at all.
    Will it help if I uninstall all the epson drivers and let vista find my
    printer?
    Thanks for all the responses so far, much appreciated!!

    I have been having the same problem with my r200. If you still can’t
    find the Get Ink Levels button here’s how I did it.
    Open control panel and then open printers.
    In mine I had 2 different icons for the R200. One called Epson Stylus
    Photo R200 (M) and one called Epson Stylus R200 Series.
    The "series" one is my default printer and I can’t check ink levels
    on that one, but if I choose the "(M)" one and check the printing
    preferences there is a button with Get Ink Levels on it.

    However, If I choose this one as the default printer I can’t print
    onto cds or dvds. Just use the "(M)" one to check ink levels and
    leave the other one as your default.

    Hope this helps.

    Epson recently release a whole slew od Vista X64 and x86 compatiable printer
    drivers (which include ink level notifications). I downloaded the Vista
    drivers fromk my R800 just the other day. I see the R200 out there also.

    I have no problem running the Print CD application on Vista x64. Installed
    without a hitch and I've printed over 50 DVDs so far.

    Thanks Tonyuk2004, so far your option seems to be the better one as I can now
    print to cds and dvds. Thanks again
