I have an HP F735 installed on a host computer running Windows XP Professional 32-bit. Now I tried to add this network printer on a computer running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit over the network. The network printer was added into the "Device and Printers" including its driver.
My problem is that, even though that the network printer (hosted by Win XP 32-bit) was added on Device and Printers, I still can't perform a network print operation using this computer running on Win 7 Pro 32-bit.
I tried a series of test:
1.) I tried to install the latest drivers, softwares & updates of the HP F735 on the host computer / XP Computer (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3457028
2.) I installed the HP F735 printer DIRECTLY on the computer using the Windows 7 using the latest drivers,softwares & updates found on the HP website. I was able to print doing this. BUT, when I re-connected the printer back to the host / XP computer, then re-added printer and re-installed driver, the Win 7 Computer on the network still could not on the network printer. (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4062&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3457028
3.) I REPAIR INSTALLED Windows 7 OS, then re-added and re-installed the driver of the network printer located on the host / XP computer, Yet again another failure.
You know what's weird??!! Because I have another computer over the network that runs the same operating system (Windows 7 Professional 32-bit) that was able to successfully connnect to that network printer and PRINT!!!
Please, I'm really feeling very bad about this. I hope you could help me out ASAP. TIA.
