I have a network setup in my house. I have a HP LJ 1200 PCL 5 printer on my Vista machine and my gf wants to be able to print on it from her XP machine.
Now, I am sharing files with her (which she has no problem accessing) and I can SEE the printer from her computer and it recognizes the right printer model. However, if I try to add it, it says that it is looking for the driver on the Vista machine and it doesn't have the right driver and then when it asks to try and find the driver for it, I can find nothing for it (I have looked online for the right inf file, but have not found it on her machine) . . . but when I installed it directly from her machine, it came up with a install wizard that gave me a list of all bunch of makes and models of printers.
The maddening part is that if she connects directly to the printer, she has no problem printing to it and I can print to it without issue from my machine. . .so I know we both have the right drivers on our respective machines. . . and it recognizes what printer it is and it still won't work.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
