|Hi I have the same problem, Did you ever get it resolved.|
I am trying to install A Samsung CLP-315. I have the Vista Disk, I also tried with the downloaded setup driver from samsung. It trys to install but stalls at either 50% if you choose to install the printer status monitor and 75% if you choose not to install the printer status monitor in custom installs. I have deleted the Norton Trialware, Liveupdate never worked. The USB port finds the printer under usb001.
Vista is all updated using windows update.
I have also tried to install a brother DCP7020, scanner and printer. I used the Vista CD. The printer software also stalled. When I mean stalled, you can leave the computer installing the software for hours and hours and its still trying to install. In both cases I used Ctrl-Alt-Del to end the install program.
This printer comes with Paperport, Paperport Software was installed but would normally install a Paperport Printer as well as the Brother printer. Good news is Paperport was install and I am able to scan documents into the computer.
So I am thinking something is blocking me from installing any printer, I have check for setting after setting.
