Solved: Vista Laptop Vs XP Network Printer – Again

dbooth says: 6 years ago Thank you so much for the step-by-step instructions for printer sharing between Widows 7 and XP. Nadya says: 7 years ago i did exactlly what u said for sharing printer with window 7 and i can see my printer on winodw 7 but i cann't still print sanchezm says: 6 years ago I have tried this and it does not work for me. Installed driver on Laptop & switched on printer on USB > works fine. have a peek at these guys

When I click on details, it says "Error Code 0x80070035 The network path was not found." Any ideas? and we were not able to fix the problem as it ultimately is with Windows 7. All very frustrating. bamim2 says: 6 years ago I followed these steps & they almost worked.

The Network Connections window opens. Enjoy! Wait while Windows connects to the printer and installs it… It’s successfully added…click Next.

In Device Manager, go to the View menu and choose Show Hidden Devices. Please let me know. As I obviously did not connect the printer at the end of the installation, I got an error message to say the program had maybe not installed OK. Close Yeah, keep it Undo Close This video is unavailable.

On the General tab, verify that both the Show icon in notification area when connected, and the Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity options are selected, and If the computer is able to connect to the Internet, you are done. One day whenI am feeling more scientific than tired, I may try backtracking to see what recreates the problem, but today I feel more tired than scientific Gear in this for information on locating the product number.

It worked. April 18, 2010 Nick I am having problems connecting to my printer (whish is on an XP machine) from my new Windows 7 machine. Step 2: Make sure you can see the printer share from the network browsing area in Windows 7. check my blog Although I could see it through the network and install it on the Win 7 PC, the network would not allow the printer to print.

Installing new driver from Canon USA site (but dated 11/01/2006). Homegroup only works with Windows 7 computers and will not talk to your XP computer. Nsda!

I can see the printer on the network but get the "Driver not found" message even though there's a driver on HP's website. Your fix solved all this, and fooled my W7 into thinking it was directly hooked up to the printer, thus tricking it into realizing it could find the driver. Your alternative method is to browse to it. Therefore I have to delete the printer from the VISTA Home laptop and re-add it.

note: If connected to a private network, the computer may require the use of specific IP and DNS addresses. Are you looking for the solution to your computer problem?
