Trying to share 1 printer with 2 windows 7 pc's

Hi All,

I have a desktop pc which is running 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate and a laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium N.
I am trying to share the 1 printer which is a epson and is connected to the desktop pc.
I go into the printer properties on the desktop and it has sharing selected and is set as default.
I go into the properties on the laptop and the epson is also set as default.
When i select print on the laptop i just get an error and it will not print.
Can someone please help me with this issue?

Cheers Shane

How did you install the printer on the laptop? Is the laptop also 64 bit?

You could try the method described in this post. Just replace XP machine mentioned in text with your Desktop.

I fixed it but unsure how i did it.
I think i had to install 32 bit and 64 bit drivers on laptop that was connecting to 64 bit desktop.
