I did everything you said. All i want to do is access the media files from my Windows 7 so that I can watch videos on my Vista. I have an older plotter (HP 600) that is not able to run in Windows 7, but I was able to download it into XP mode. I'm very grateful! Check This Out
The steps are perfect! You're awesome.

Network printer works on win 7 laptop, but trying to setup shared printer through network didn't work, so I tried your fix, and got message "Unable to install printer.
Then click “Save changes” 17. Stacy says: 5 years ago Wonderful! I really appreciate your help, as I have been trying to get this to work for ages and this solved the problem for me. sngbird00 says: 6 years ago Thank you soooo much for this page and the cannot see other pcs in my network.
still nothing has worked. And the two versions do not play nice together, especially with one being 32-bit and the other being 64-bit. Select “other” then click “next” 7. http://support.brother.com/g/b/faqend.aspx?c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hl2170w_all&faqid=faq00002486_001 When I try to print, the print job goes to the XP box's print queue, but instead of printing, the queue just says "Error - printing." I've tried several different drivers
The first box lists all of the system services that must be running for Print Spooler to start. Mark Ranjan says: 6 years ago Thank you very much, It really works. Your fix solved all this, and fooled my W7 into thinking it was directly hooked up to the printer, thus tricking it into realizing it could find the driver. Done, I can not believe.
This worked. his explanation Uniquely clear, step by step, and worked! mahesh says: 6 years ago hi recently i have buyed a printer hplaserjet m1522nf and i connected it to my local xp(32bit) machine then i have tried it on sharing on Share Files Windows 7 View Now that we have the correct settings on each machine, it’s time to put it to the test.
You can not post a blank message. his comment is here When I keep checking I get a box that tells me it can't find the driver. Just because you see another computer icon in your network, it doesn't mean that everything is accessable. Rick says: 6 years ago Great description of the steps involved.
All I did was empty all the printers from windows/system32/spool/drivers/x64 and then reinstalled the printer drivers as the author suggested. What was different about your instructions? Here you can see the HP printer connected to the Windows 7 machine is available. this contact form Thanks!
Can you tell me how do I make it discoverable on my windows 7? Changed to home/work under customize and it works now October 4, 2011 John Only need to share a Printer with others, not all my private documents. The print spooler is set up to restart 5 times after a failure.
If it is still failing, the issue is a corrupt printer driver. Now on the W7 machine do the following (doesn't matter if it's X-86 or x-64). 3) Control Panel==> add LOCAL (Yes LOCAL) printer. Lucky I found this page, otherwise I'd still be trying to get it to work! Try and restart the spooler and monitor the event log to see if it is still failing.
Then, I uninstalled printer and re-installed. Makes it rough when the kids find something they want/need to print for school and have to go and change computers. Travis-Mc says: 6 years ago Thank you so much. http://sauvblog.com/cannot-print/cannot-print-via-vpn.html I even connected the W7 directly to the printer as a true local device.
How do I go about it? Click on Security Tab > Advanced > Owner. What if the printer was not on the list? My laptop is a Sony Vaio and it is running Windows 7 Ultimate.
What's happened please? Thanks so much!! I'll do it on my other laptops too! Just what i needed after alot of frustration trying to get helpful info on Microsoft support.
After trying dozens of "help Geek" internet articles on this topic, yours is the first one that covers ALL the steps. This is Driving Me Crazy... I did each step as I read your instructions and when I got to the last line I was printer sharing. Mine XP machine is called Aseem.
