Windows 7: Printing from Win 7 laptop to Win XP desktop

14 Mar 2014   #11


I did not ask if those steps were the ones you used before or not. I asked you to work through those steps again and report back results on each. This will confirm that you have XP sharing enabled. If you passed that step and it still didn't work, then I would have you run the XP Network and Sharing wizard which can also sort this out. I've gone through this over a dozen times before.

You are at the top tech forums on the web so you can either work with us in a decent way or take it elsewhere.
