Windows 7: Error 0x00000c66 when trying to share a printer

01 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Error 0x00000c66 when trying to share a printer

I have a new Dell desktop with Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
I am trying to set upmy printers to work with the new computer. I am having problems with a Brother MFC-640CW Wireless printer which worked fine with my prior XP computer. I downloaded the Windows 7 64x drivers and they installed without problems but the computer won't find the printer. I have connected it up with a usb cable and it is then found but when I try to change the property to shared I get Error 0x000006cc. The printer now shows and say Ready but it won't print.
I looked at this error on Google and got a lot of answers but some of them refuse to open while others seem suspicious to me. One forum member (not this one) said he had cut out spooling and then put it back and that did the trick, but it did not work for me.

Anyone had this problem and solved it ?
