Easiest way is to install it on one computer, then make sure it is shared with all.
On the other computer, do a search for printers on the first computer, and install it on the second one.
It should be literally that simple, so long as there is at least a peer network, at the least, as a common link between both computers.

How do i share this printer from win xp to win vista? i have 2 computers side by side and want the printer to serve both computers?


First the one Computer is connected to the Printer and the other one not right? So think the Computer that is connected to the Printer as "Printer Server" and the other one as the "client comp". So go to the Start Menu one the Printer Server and go to Devices and Printer (or what u call it). Then RIGHT CLICK the printer and then propeties. Click on sharing and then u see the Printer sharing name. Remember it well. Now go to the start menu again and Right Click "COMPUTER" then Properties.U see the computer name. Close all. Now go to ur client computer (XP) and go to Control Panel>Printer And Faxes>Add a printer>Next>Network Printer>Connect to this printer (2nd option) and now do this. "\\ur vista computer name\the sharing name" and then finish and ur done. :P

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!

I cant plot from AutoCad 2006, using My hp


hmmm.. we only have two computers at my work connected to a router. the designjet has a network card going straight to it. i connect to the router wireless and it reads vista. my boss connects to the design jet thru the router as well with a network card rj cable with xp pro. as for our printer it can be connected via router and does work fine but my boss has it directely connected to his computer and i share it off of his system. then we also have a zerox machine connected via router as well. maybe your router is going out? try a new one or a better one and see if that fixes it. it maybe defected or time for a new one.......

if it was working before then maybe its the router.

Just save your pictures to "My Pictures" folder (windows xp) or "Pictures" folder (windows vista).
Then, right click on your desktop and go to Properties (win xp) or Personalize (win vista), then on Screen Saver, select "My picture slideshow" and you will have your pictures as your screensaver.

Network printe on vista


Accessing a Shared Printer To access a shared printer from a computer running Windows Vista, do the following:
  1. Click Start, and then click Network. The Network window displays a list of computers in the workgroup of the computer.
  2. Double-click the name of the computer containing the shared printer that you want to access.
  3. Right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect. Alternately, you can double-click on Printers to see just the list of shared printers, and then right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect.
After you have connected to the shared printer, you will be able to print to this shared printer as long as the printer and the computer sharing the printer are turned on.


please note that in network the computer that has the network printer if it is running XP may take as long as 15minutes to be recognized.

I am trying to share a printer.


Are they both under the same network? Can the pc find the laptop under network connections and vice versa? If not, then right-click my computer, go to properties, go to the tab 'Computer Name' click on the button change, and make it part of a workgroup of your choice of name. Do this for both making them part of the SAME workgroup.
Then, make your printer shared under that workgroup.
