  • Xp Print Share

    I am having a problems connecting my wife's Vista Home edition laptop to the print share on our XP desktop. I was able to connect using Vista Businees edition.
    Any hints?

    Thanks

    Hint 1: more information?!

    Do you get an error message, is anything in the event logs of either machine, at what stage does it fail...

    On this forum, you can NEVER give us too much info. You also might want to read the rules before you post again.

    Now - care to try again?

      Can you connect to anything else on the desktop -- shared folders?
      Can you see the desktop in "Network"

      If not, double check both the Vista PC and the desktop are in the same workgroup
