I have a office network set up with XP Pro SP2 and I would like to share my printer. I go to "Printers and Faxes" than click on my printer properties. I then click on the sharing tab. "Share this printer" than I give it a name "HPDJ895Cxi" when I click "apply" I get "printer settings could not be saved. Operation could not be compleated"

I see that others have asked about this problem on your web site and it doesn't appear that anyone is able to supply a fix.

I am a comuter Tech and am on the job right now.

Thanks, I did check the print spooler service and it was active. I didn't originally setup the machine that I was having problems with so I guess I took some things for granted like assuming that File and Print Sharing were installed for the network card (which it wasn't!). So I did figure out the problem and rectified it. I use experts-exchange all the time and it is very helpful. This is the first time that I ever actually asked a question. Thanks for the quick turn around on answering.
