Why cant my windows xp share printer w windows 7?


Hi Chris,

Make sure that both Computers are turned ON if you are printing from Win7 through Win xp

Also make sure that the printer is installed on both machines and that the printer sharing is set up, and that both computers are on the same Workgroup.
Also make sure that the Turn On network discovery is activated in windows7 for XP to be able to detect it on the network, and that the File Printer Sharing is also activated, make sure everything in the sharing settings is activated in the network.

I hope that this will help,

Sounds like your printer isn't configured for "sharing." Go to Control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Choose homegroup and sharing options. Make sure Printer has a check mark.

If you have any other computers, check them to see if you can print from them.

Desktop computer windows xp...sons laptop windows 7 ..wireless router....same internete signal...can his laptop find my printer..or do i need to run same cd on my sons laptop..to get it to install on...


Hi,

Yes it is possible, you have to install the pritner software on your Sons laptop.

1) For sharing, if you have a network printer connected to your router, then select the network option while installing the printer (If you would have given us the printer model and make we could have given step by step instructions).

2) If the printer is connected to your XP computer and you want to share it, share the printer from XP as mentioned in the steps below.

>> Open Printers and Faxes. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
>> Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.
>> On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer and then type a share name for the shared printer (e.g. MyPrinter), click on Apply and Ok. (as shown below)

Now goto the Windows 7 laptop and follow the steps as mentioned below,

>> Click Start >> Click on Devices and Printers >> Click on Add Printer (as shown below)

>> A new window will come up, click on Add a network printer (as shown below)

shreysri_11.jpg
>> The laptop will search the network for the printer and display it on the list, click on the printer and click on next. The laptop will install the software required, do ensure the printer installation disc is in the laptop in case if Windows 7 wont have the driver it will take it from the disc.

Regards,
Shrey

I want to share an HP 7760 on an XP with Win 7


To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.

Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)

On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:

1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer"
2) Create New Port > Local port
3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes

(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)

4) Click <OK>

5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.

I hope this helps!

Have you made sure that the Printer is a shared resource.

Generally a printer will not be seen on a network if it is shared (allowed to be used by others).

From the computer (where the Printer is attached), locate the Printer by :

1. Click Start
2. Click Settings (or Control Panel)
3. Click Printers (or Printers and Faxes)
4. Highlight the printer you want to share.
5. Click File, Sharing (or Properties, and the Sharing tab).
6. Click to Share the printer.

The printer should now be available for you to see (from your laptop or anything connected to your network). The instructions above are for Windows XP (Vista).

I personally do not own Windows 7 and cannot provide you with exact steps for Windows 7.

However, SHARING is what you are looking for. If you can't achieve sharing the printer with the above steps, then use the HELP in Windows 7 to get the exact instructions.

If you need further assistance, let me know. Please rate. Regards,

I HAVE A \LEXMARK X2330 INSTALLED ON AN xp PC. I


I am assuming that the Win7 can "see" the Lexmark on the XP machine but not print.

OK, on the Win7 laptop in question:
Click Control Panel > Printers > Add Local Printer
Create New Port = Local Port
Port name is \\yourXPcomputername\Printername

Now Win7 will install a print driver to work with the shared Lexmark printer.

How do I get my Windows 7 laptop to add printer from my Windows xp PC. Just purchased a Dell laptop with Windows 7. My PC has Lexmark 7300 printer, I cannot get the laptop with 7 to add printer with my pc...


Lexmark do not provide a driver for this printer for windows 7.
The latest version is for XP only.

http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=EN&page=product&userlocale=EN_US&productCode=LEXMARK_X7350#1
You could use the XP as a printer server, i.e. it would interface to the printer, but accept documents from a Windows 7 laptop.
This web page shows how to set up the XP printer as a network printer on the network as windows 7 resource.

Just bought win 7 laptops wont connect to my lexmark x1180 printer connected to my desktop running xp any ideas?


Enable File and Print Sharing on your XP system.
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
Enable "sharing' for the printer.

Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Computer Name
to show the current "workgroup" name on your XP system.

On the Windows 7 system:
Configure it into the same workgroup.
Then, "Add Network Printer", connecting to your XP system, and pointing at the shared printer.
