  • Windows cannot connect to the printer operation could not be complete

    I used to have two desktops A & B, they have internet sharing and printer sharing , they were working fine.

    Desktop A XP Professional SP2 PC has got two printers (HP and Samsung) connected directly (USB cable), and printer sharing is turned on .

    I bought another Desktop to replace B, because B is an old PC.

    From the Desktop B (XP Professional SP2), when attempting to chose the option :
    Code:
    A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer
    , to add a shared printer , I can browse and see the printers name (hp and Samsung), however, when I attempt to
    connect both of them, I get the following error:
    Code:
    Window cannot connect to the printer operation could not be completed error

    Do I need to have admin account with their passwords on both Desktop to be able to share the printers ?

    Both PCs on the same workgroup name (MSHOME), there are no firewalls on both PCs.

    For File and Printer Sharing to work on computers in Workgroup, you need to have the same username (and the same password) on both computers, and that the user that needs to print should have printing permissions on the shared printer.
