    Hi, the vista drivers do work, I got mine going in Windows 7 and it still worked when I installed Windows 8, much to my joy! Getting the scanner working is a trickier thing, but here is what I used for printing and scanning:

    To install printer: Download Win Vista 64bit (printer only). Install using USB001 (virtual printer port for USB) instead of LPTI.
    To install scanner: Download Win XP 64bit (scanner only)
    1. Right-click on Lex_X215_WinScan_en.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Compatibility tab and place a checkmark next to Run
    this program in compatibility mode for (Windows XP SP2).
    4. Click Apply, and OK.
    5. Double-click on Lex_X215_WinScan_en to install the software.

    Hope this helps!
  2. Here is what I did:

    To install the printer and scanner drivers on Windows 8.1 64 bit, here is what I did and worked for me.

    1. Downloaded Lexmark_X215_XP03Vista_x64_en from Lexmark and set compatibility mode to XP SP 3.

    The first step is the same as described by GarrickFox however, I couldn't make the scanner work following his approach. So, here is what I did and worked like a charm for me.

    2. Downloaded "Free Kapture" scanner utility by TSoft from CNET download. URL: http://download.cnet.com/FreeKapture/3000-2094_4-10673689.html and installed the software.

    Scanner TWAIN software is 32 bit but hey, it worked on Windows 8.1 64 bit!!
