I assume that if you have SP2 installed, then you alao have Windows Firewall enabled.
Make sure you have administrative rights & then go to Start->settings->control panel->Windows Firewall. Click on the exceptions tab & tick the File & print sharing checkbox. Click OK & reboot.
If you still have trouble installing the printer after this, can you check that the RPC Service is running please.

I've not been using Firewall for service pack 2 as it's more trouble than it's worth. In the end I'm happy using service pack 1 for now. System is much more stable, no firewall setup as I have so many spyware, malware and the like protecting me it's not funny. I even think my system runs a little faster without service pack 2 anyway, so I guess I'll just leave it the way it is and wait for Vista to come out.
Lets close this thread please...
take care Samm
