  1. I have just upgraded my Consumer Preview to Release Preview and like it, so I decided to take 8 seriously and, encouraged by your tip, decided to setup Backup. I found a straightforward alternative way of accessing the setup screen. Go to Control Panel and select 'System and Security>Save backup copies of your files with File History'. A new window opens and searches for File History drives. On completion of the search a 'Windows 7 File Recovery' button appears at the bottom of the left column. Select this and the Backup setup window shown in your video appears.
  2. For what it's worth I got round the problem with the LBP2900 by switching off Windows Firewall and installing the free Firewall from ZoneLabs. ZoneLabs Firewall then offered to add the Canon Advanced Printing System to its program exception list. The three files added were: C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\CNAB4SWK.exe C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\CNAB4LAK.exe C:\Windows\System32\CNAB4RPK.exe The printer is working well.
  3. As part of the driver installation process Canon LBP2900 RPC Server Process was added to the Windows Firewall Exception list so this is not the problem. How wrong can you get? I switched off Windows Firewall and the printer goes like smoke, so it appears that the inclusion of the RPC Server Process in the Firewall Exception list during the installation of the driver is ineffective. So what do we do now?
  4. A friend has asked me to help him with the problem described in this topic. He has a new, well-specified Vista machine and Canon laser printing is unacceptably slow. I installed the printer on my own Vista desktop PC and am experiencing the same delays. As part of the driver installation process Canon LBP2900 RPC Server Process was added to the Windows Firewall Exception list so this is not the problem. This topic has been dormant for some time but I am hoping that someone is still monitoring it and that we may raise some more suggestions. My own obsolescent Samsung laser works fine (in spite of using a Lexmark driver because Samsung did not provide a Vista version!!!)
