Windows 7: USB printer on network with 64bit !

USB printer on network with 64bit !

I've just installed windows 7 home prem 64 bit on my new pc.

I have a Cannon ip4500 inkjet attached to this machine via USB.

In my network I have 2 other PC's running XP pro 32 bit which are wired to the router and a Laptop running Vista 32 bit which is wireless. This set up was fine until I added 64 bit into the network.

I cannot get the other machines to see the printer and sharing is set up.

I have also installed the Driver Add-On Module from cannon on the 64 bit machine with no luck. Plus I tried to install additional x86 drivers through sharing but I just get an error.

I'm at a loss

Please move if this should be in the Drivers section?

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
I've an old thread about sharing printers on a mix of 64 and 32 bit systems -- it was a while back but use the search in this thread.

It doesn't matter WHAT machine the printer is attached to -- all the 32 / 64 bit machines zill be able to access it if you follow the instructions.

It's my post (post NR 3) in THIS thread

Win 7 pro 32 bit

Thanks but I did all of that and have done that many times before.

After a fare bit of looking around I found out I had to turn off the network password for the PC running 7 64 bit. Even if I put in the user name and correct password it didn't work.

All working fine now and all machines can print.
