Windows 7: Need Help Using Mac Shared Printer on W7 PC

Fixed - Both Printing and file sharing now works

Thank to all for the advise. I have finally gotten both the printing on a MAC-attached printer and the MAC file sharing working.

Bonjour cured the printer sharing issue immediately. I finally got the file sharing working after I completely reset all of the MAC file sharing settings - not sure what was wrong but it all works now.

Can now print to MP500 connected to Imac

I just bought a laptop with Windows 7 and installed Bonjour to print to our Canon MP500 that is connected to an Imac via USB. Had no problem with XP. To finally print, I opened the printer properties of the printer I created in Bonjour. Click on the Advanced Tab and then I changed the driver to Generic. I then selected new driver and chose Generic and MS Publisher Color printer and then hit Windows Update. It gave me a list of manufactors and I selected Generic and 35PPM PCL. It worked. After many hours and 3 extra printers in my devices I now can print. Any idea how to get rid of the extra Bonjour printers? I read that Windows 7 doesn't allow you delete printers with the @ sign in the name. Any work around this?

Hi Patg,

Welcome to the forum.

Have you already gone into secpol.msc and enabled "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session if negotiated" (per the first page)? and if so, can you browse to the MAC from the Windows 7 box?

If not, please run through my checklist on the first page Need Help Using Mac Shared Printer on W7 PC.

If you have, then please install the correct printer drivers from the Cannon website. Sometimes windows update does not host the latest drivers from here -> Cannon Drivers

If you experience any error messages during the process, please let me know what they are and I'll attempt to help.

I also need to let you know that in 12 hours time I'm on a plane for the next day from Singapore to New York, so I can't reply tomorrow but I will reply when I get to to NYC.... that's of course if my plane is not cancelled like the other one million + people :P

Using the current print driver is woring fine. I found another post to get rid of the extra printers. I opened notepad and then the print box. I selected the extra Bonjour printers I installed, right clicked and deleted. Worked great. have a great trip
