How can I share my HP officejet 5610 all in one printer that is connected to my desktop that has windows XP with my windows vista laptop?


1. Unplug your USB cable from the back of the Windows XP PC and plug the USB cable directly into your Windows Vista PC.
2. The Windows Vista drivers for your printer should be automatically loaded and your printer will be installed on your Windows Vista PC. If this was successful, skip right to step 3.
If step 2 is not successful

i. Download the Windows Vista printer driver for your printer from
the manufacturers website.

1. If your printers manufacturer has not created a Vista driver
yet, retry step 2.

ii. Install the driver on your Windows Vista PC. During
installation, youll be prompted to connect the printer to your PC.
Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.

3. After installation is complete, open the Printers icon in the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right-click on your printer that was just installed and choose Properties.
5. Navigate to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, then select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the Port Name, enter the exact network path and share name of your printer. (ex. - \\HOMEPC\Printer2) 8. Click OK and make sure that this new port is selected with a check in the checkbox.
9. Click Apply and then OK to close the printer properties.
10. You should now be able to print from your Windows Vista PC to a shared printer located on your Windows XP PC.

Can't connect Xp laptop to 64Bit Vista PC to be able to print across wireless network


yes easy to fix, just share your print driver give it a share name like canonmp780 on the pc it is connected to
then get on your laptop asuming its on your wireless network and in the start bar run this command. \\ your computer name one printer is connected to \ canonmp780.
so if your computer name is windows and your printer name is canonmp780 the run command will be: \\windows\canonmp780 hope this helps and really easiest way to connect to it.

Network x86 driver support on Vista 64 bit OS (Samsung Ml-2510)


That's right. You'll have to install the XP driver on an XP PC, and share it to the other XP machines that way, or Install the driver on each PC individually -you can't share a Vista driver with XP PC's.

Want to share 922all in one on xp desktop with laptop using Vista


I have a network running both an XP computer & a Vista computer. What I had to do after connecting them both to the router was make an internet connection with 1 computer, turn on the printer so everything the network was going to share was powered on; then run the network wizard on both computers. Once I did this the computer that the printer is not physically connected to installed the printer driver. Once this entire process was completed we had internet on both computers as well as both computers being able to send jobs to the same printer. Has worked great for over a year. Hope this helps you out.

Unable to share printer


You need to go into the machine that manages the printer and allow the access denied machine access or to share printer. You may have to run the network setup wizard in order for the machines to recognize each other.

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.
