Windows 7: Unable to view printers on remote PC

Unable to view printers on remote PC

I am unable to view printers on some remote computers running Windows 7 Enterprise. When I click View Remote Printers the window is blank and when I click Add a printer I receive a error "You do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation". I do have administrative rights on the PCs that exhibit this problem. I did notice if I Remote Desktop into the computer and share one of the printers then I can add a printer the original way. All of the PCs are using the same image. Any ideas?

Windows 7 x64 finally!

Hi Stew, welcome to the forums

I know your problem is not connecting to a XP machine printer, but maybe the solution will work. Please check this post: XP to 7 Printer sharing

Adding the printer as local and using the path as the port name might work

let us know
