Installing Bonjour for Windows on a Vista Business Edition PC.

Bonjour, Apple's networking technology, can make it very simple to add a printer which is either attached to a Mac or an Airport wireless base station.

Go to Apple's website and download Bonjour for Windows 1.04. Users running 64-bit versions of Windows XP or Windows Vista can download a compatible version of Bonjour for Windows 1.0.4 here.

I would recommend that you check the Create Bonjour Printer Wizard desktop shortcut, it makes it much easier to find it when you want to install the printer, you can always delete the shortcut later,

If you want to automatically update Bonjour for Windows, then check the Automatically update Bonjour and other Apple software, note that this will install another application, Apple Updater for Windows, and this will update other Apple software such as iTunes, Quicktime and Safari.

Click the Install button, the software will now install.
