Printer Whisperer (June 9, 2011) The box should be unchecked like the picture shows. Thank you! Travis-Mc says: 6 years ago Thank you so much. If you you have two Windows 7 computers, then sharing a printer or files is easy through the Homegroup feature. http://midsolutions.org/xp-and/xp-and-printer-driver-question.html
Now, I need the Windows 7 program to see the XP mode plotter. For the sake of this tutorial, we won't share the printer. Not sure why the process is, like you said, so counter-intuitive? I have a Epson Stylus Photo RX500 printer connected to a XP computer via USB.
I tried so many thing. i had to disable the firewall! I have an HP DeskJet 840C... And for the record: can I also scan with my printer/scanner if it's connected like you propose here?
Enjoy! So then I tried Next. Click Add a printer. (See the illustration that follows.) 5. morganj1 says: 7 years ago The instructions are correct for what I want to do.
I was so close. Now Iam going to replace a new Desktop with USB3 abd Window 7. old one says: 7 years ago Hi. The "add a printer" to local port instructions in this article worked.
i was stuck for a copule of days but after going through your post, it only took me 2 minutes to fix the problem. On the Start menu (Windows), clickRun Entermsiexec /regserver,and thenclick OK. The XP is connected to AT&T DSL Motorola modem. This will carry on in the same manner as it happened on the Windows XP machine. 9.
Now you can set it as the default printer or not and print a test page to make sure everything works successfully. The counter-intuitive step that you mention was something I never thought I would select because well, like you said it was counter-intuitive. Now I see in Control Panel the printer is assigned as 1300 PCL6. Is there a way around that?
MG1 says: 5 years ago Thank you your steps worked perfectly - I was trying on and off again for two weeks trying to resolve Bryan says: 5 years ago I http://midsolutions.org/xp-and/xp-and-outlook-2000-problem.html Everything worked superbly including the Windows Printer Test Page. I tried all drivers from the HP site and didnt work for XP. The printer has been successfully added…click Next.
My mistake was that the first time through it did not finish up correctly so when I tried to add it again the computer said that the port already exists. To fix these, go to the "Printers and Faxes" control panel item, and right-click on your printer, make sure that "Use printer online" is checked and click on "Resume printing" if Would I use the same steps as you stated or is there something different I should do? my review here Very clear and easy to follow (I like the "local printer" warning).
If you have any problems sharing your printer on XP and printing from Windows 7, post a comment here and I will try to help! You said you downloaded and tried all drivers. I got her a USB to Centronics adapter, and everything seemed to install fine.
No other words. That is my problem, the driver. Two are WIN xp pro and my main one is WIN 7 PRO x64. Please note that this is Microsoft Windows functionality.
Maybe I should update that one to Win 7 too! Thank you! Using the site is easy and fun. get redirected here share|improve this answer answered Apr 9 '13 at 8:49 Stefan Seidel 6,06911030 try this method, If that does not work either try a factory reset on the hp printer

Printer Whisperer (August 13, 2011) Do you have any LaserJet printers in your list? I am very surprised that tech support (or lack of tech support) from Canon is not aware of how to do this. It requires a IEEE 1284. I've had my old laser printer connected to my Windows XP Pro machine and haven't been able to connect my 64-bit Windows 7 laptop to it over about a year and
