First of all Hello

Is it win XP pro of office pro :) anyways i think you meant office professional :)

if its xp pro
Do you have a Cd or an image containing xp pro mounted? If so that is why you are getting this problem. Make sure remove any CD's from the drive.

if its office pro and you have multiple accounts on your computer do this :)
It might be that you are using office as a user of your PC and NOT as administrator in which case it means you have to go back to your administrator profile and make a FULL INSTALL (all features installed on my computer) of OFFICE professional and the problem goes.

I hope that this fixya helped you :)

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
