We have our print server a windows servrer 2003 machine with all the latested patches. Just started getting in some windows 7 computers. We setup new installs of the printers on the server with the windows 7 drivers. So we would have \\server\printer and \\server\printer_7 for our win 7 machines.
When we go to the win 7 machine to add the printer using the add printer wizard and browsing for the shared printer through the directory and trying to connect with unc \\server\printer_7 both fail with the same error. Cannont connect to printer error 0x000007e.
We only get this on the win7 machines. I know there is the way where you add a local printer and create the ip port but that is a dumb workaround, i would imagine this would be done easily like with the xp machines who just hit the server unc path and click on whatever printer they want.
For testing, firewalls are off, printer secuity is set everyone group to full access.
Thanks in advance.
