If so, the following thread will be interesting:

Windows 7 Starter Edition & network printer

MS indicates Starter 7 will connect to a network. It says nothing about using a network printer.

First some info:
Each Windows "user" has it's own temp folder buried deep below his/her account.

You empty it with the "run" command putting %temp% in the box and deleting the files. I have found each user can contain up to 3 gb or more hogging your HD.

The word is, empty these folders once and a while.

Ok. onward with the problem.
I'm logged in as admin. I have downloaded the file at least 3 times and checking size.
A new quirk added to the mystery. My temp folder is empty. I start to install the software. It extracts to the temp folder and part way through a popup says, "The system can not cannot find specified file." "blocksysuse................" I click "ok" and the software closes.


This file is suppose to have been put in my temp folder by this software.
It's impossible to expand and see the whole string.

Starter Edition can print to network shared printers. My daughters netbook, that is running starter, has no problem printing to a laser printer shared on my PC. I've never tried to share my all-in-one to it though. If I was going to try it, I think I would install it locally first. I'd do the install with the all-in-one connected to her netbook. Then try connecting over the network.

I did connect my laser with TCIP and it works.

The software doesn't get far enough to pick connection type. The simplest would be install USB and then add network. I found an old file from December and same results.

I should have mentioned it's on the same network and homegroup.

My all-in-one is USB only, . I'd like to go wireless when I replace it but I'd settle for a LAN capable unit. What I did on my daughters netbook was just your basic shared printer setup. It's just an old Brother B&W laser with a centronics to USB adapter on it. Some how I completely missed the "network setup" you mentioned in your very first post. I have an XP PC on my LAN and don't use Homegroup at all. Everything is setup in advanced sharing options.

For what ever reason my restore points are gone. If someone don't come up with a answer, it's format time.
