Canon has not yet produced a 64 bit printer driver for my printer, the Canon LBP5100. I bought this new 6 months ago in August 09 and have tried to install it on a Windows 7 Home Premium PC. Canon support can give no information about whether and when one will be produced. I'm disappointed in Canon's lack of support.
Surely Microsoft ought to be able to persuade a manufacturer of Canon's size to collaborate over new software releases like Windows 7. HP drivers for my 12 year old inkjet were already in Windows 7.
Any ideas on how to get it to work gratefully received. I've tried installing the printer on an XP pc on my home network and asking that PC to print, but it refuses as it can't find the right driver.
Hope fully this might help.... I was poking about the forums and stumbled across this reference online
Apparently Xerox has a generic Driver for most printers as long as your printer speaks PCL5/6 or Postscript (most modern printers should)
I don't know if it works but it's certainly worth a shot!

Go to Canon - Pick your geographical location from the map, then click the > Support & Drivers link in the top right and click your way through to the product your own. Once you’re there, you can select your operating system from a drop-down menu.
