Cannot install printer on Windows 2000 for Windows 7 machine
I have an old machine running Windows 2000 professional which I use as a printer server for a peer to peer network. My XP machine can see the computer and has the printer installed with no issues.
Initially my Windows 7 (Home Premium) machine could detect but not access the 2000 machine. I found the fix (creating/setting the LmCompatibilityLevel key to a Dword of 1) and now I can sign on to the 2000 and access its files. (I ran the refreshpolicies commands on the 2000 also).
When I try to instal the printer as a local printer it appears to instal. The existing driver is recommended (and accepted). When I print the test page it does not print. On the windows 7 the print queue eventually shows the page as having an error, while the print queue on the windows 2000 machine is empty throughout.
When I try to instal as a network printer I get to the point where I am informed that there is no driver for the printer and I have to search for a .inf file which I can't find.
