I would try installing a Generic Printer driver on this Vista computer, DO NOT set as the Default printer. Then from Farm Works go to the File Menu and Printer Setup. Select this Generic Printer. After prviewing the map or report on computer screen, click on the File Menu and Printer Setup. Select the correct wireless printer driver and OK. Then Print to hard copy is applicable.

Try setting up a Generic Printer. Not certain with Vista, but you should be able to access Adding Printers from the Control Panel or from your Start circle/Settings/Printers and Faxes.

1. Click on the Add Printer option.
2. Click Next at the Wizard screen.
3. Select Local Printer. Click Next.
4. It may try to do a search for local printers and then fail. Select to setup manually. Click Next.
5. Select the LPT1 Port, click Next.
6. Select Generic for Manufacture and Generic/Text Only for the Printer. Click Next.
7. If you are not going to connect this laptop to a printer then you can select that the Generic Printer as the Default, Otherwise answer No and click Next.
8. Answer No to printing a test page. Click Next.
9. Click Finish. Your computer will start copying files. Close the Printers and Faxes screen.
10. Reboot your computer and try opening Farm Works again.

Let me know if still having trouble.

Thanks,

Kathy Cline,
