hp psc 1200 series : no network printing

Hi,
All my settings in Network and Sharing center are set right but when I enable network sharing in the printer's options it gives me error code 0x00000057. If anyone has any input that'd be great cause now I have to use this computer to print. Thanks.

It seems to be a comman one cuase I even found a refernce to it on our sister site for vista. this is where error 0x00000057 - Vista Forums also in this post there are directions to a page on microsoft abt this problem.

From the look of it I suspect you are running 64 bit win 7 and are not using a 64 bit printer driver

Hope this helps

Yes it is 64 bit Windows 7 but it worked fine with vista 64.
This is the error when trying to change settings, not trying to print. There is no driver specified by HP - it just says to plug it in to the computer. When I try to configure the printer:

(X) Printer settings could not be saved. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000057).

If you try to print over the network no error message, it just stays in the queue.

I was recently offered an update for psc1200 series by Windows Update.

I didn't install it as the printer is fine .

Did you get that?

I did. I could try uninstalling it though.

EDIT: Not in list of installed updates, or available updates. I've installed all updates given to me but the language packs.

If you are dual booting - you could try rt click printer in device manager - update drivers - choose the manual method and point it at the Vista partition - it should pick up and install the drivers from there.

The drivers are stored in :

"\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository"

Sadly, I am not. I will however, attempt to take them from my sister's laptop. Thank you for the info.

Ok I uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the one from vista and it gave me a different error code, which I found was Windows 7 not allowing network printing on and firewall off. It is working now.

Is there a workaround where I can keep firewall of and network printing on... because windows firewall is a HUGE headache for me.
