Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Sharing printer between vista and xp os

I connect my brother MFC 240 c printer to the desktop which is using XP SP1. My laptop has VISTA HOME OS. and has a wireless connection to my desktop thru router. The printer is shared

My laptop is able to detect the printer. However it can not connect as it is looking for the printer driver for VISTA in the desktop. I can not load the printer driver for VISTA on my desktop which is running XP SP1. Neither was there a browse button in my laptop for me to redirect search when VISTA is looking for printer driver when connecting to the printer

Is there a solution?

Hi have a nice day.
I think tranfering your job to desktop first, and then sending to printer, is a solution for now.

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.

I formatted my laptop which is using windows vista,how will i bring back the vista again?


once you format your sytems means, you deleted whole OS so you need to reinstall fresh OS on it.
you supposed to have a recovery disk (it comes alongwith laptop while buying it)
but it depends on what basic OS was there when you bought your Laptop if there was XP then you got XP OS recovery disk if there was vista then you have Vista recovery disk.
if you don't have recovery disk then you need to get new Vista disk from market to install back vista in your laptop.

thank you,

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.

Sharing printer


May your printer doesn't fit to your operating system because Windows Vista is one of the complicated OS and hard to find installer or software to fit it in. Try to Replace your operating system that same as your brother have. maybe it can fix your problem!
