According to Microsoft, this is a compatible printer.  Please see:


you may have to install the printer manually, using USB001 as the printer port, and there should be drivers for it listed, or download the XP drivers and use those.

If none of the above works, you may additionally try the Vista drivers, or download windows XP mode from Microsoft at:

You can always try and make it work with Vista drivers (if native ones cant be found).
It works in 75% of the cases.
