Is it OK to install Brother Windows XP drivers into Windows Vista?

While Windows Vista will allow you to install Windows XP drivers into the Vista® operating system, Brother does not recommend this course of action.

Instead click the links below to see if your Brother device has "built-in" drivers (Inbox drivers) or if Brother will develop Brother original drivers.
