    After many days of trying different ways to get my LJ3015 printer working
    under Vista x64 b 5384 , I now have it working! Here's what I did:

    Used my original driver disk for XP 32-bit OS and installed under Vista
    using Compability mode for XP sp2. At the point during the install when it
    asked whether the USB printer is locally installed or attached to network, I
    moved my USB cable from the XP workstation it was connected to, over to the
    Vista box, and...voila!....it found the printer and successfully loaded the
    drivers. I then shared it and pointed it back at the CD for x86 XP driver
    install.
    After this, I simply connected to this shared printer from XP, and I now
    have printing on Vista...!
    I am very happy, as this was the last feature I could not get to work. I
    even got sound working on my WinTV PVR 150 card after several exasperating
    tries...

    I followed your instructions, and got my vista machine to recognize the 3015, but the software package failed to load, and the 3015 is only a printer, using PCL 5. This is an improvement, in that it actually prints, but I can't share it with XP machine. The XP computer says that the Vista computer is using the wrong driver, and won't install the printer icon, even when I'm installing the software locally. Any hints?
