Alan - Sorry it took so long to reply. In a nutshell, when you install
the RC for SP2, there is no way to "back it out" so that I could install
the RTM over it (at least not that I could figure)...so....I had to wipe
the existing install of Vista and replace it with the RTM. Fortunately,
as far as the printer is concerned, it was worth it, because the RTM
does indeed work with the Lexmark software. No problems or even having
to run under 'compatibility' mode.....
I have not tried the FAX aspect yet, however. I'll take a look at that
later - but for now, I am indeed able to print from both Vista x64 SP2
RTM and from Win7 RC (under compatibility mode). So far, so good.
Thanks so much for your input. If I run into any more issues, I'll
psot here. Ron
