Printer wont work with networked laptop

Post by ZGllc2VsY2 » Sat, 01 Mar 2008 11:13:05


I have a desktop that is connected to a printer using a usb cord. It runs
Windows XP Home Edition. The printer works fine. My laptop is Windows Vista
and it shows the desktop computer and I can access files on it like it is
supposed to work. When you click on the printer though it says CANNOT
CONNECT, ACCESS IS DENIED. I have the printer set up for sharing, but the
laptop keeps saying this when you click on the printer icon in the desktops
folder. Any ideas?

Thanks

Your Vista is broken? Perhaps ask the folks in the Vista group?

I was thinking the printer permissions needed redone on the xp machine since
it is the one that is hardwired to the printer. But it is xp home edition
and I dont know how to do it, since in Safe mode it doesnt load the printer
info.
