Shared Printer will print test page but not from notepad or word.

I have a client with a shared usb printer on a Vista Home PC, they have a Windows 7 home perm laptop and desktop. Both the Windows 7 PCs can add the shared printer and print a test page. However if you try to print from notepad on one of the windows 7 PCs you see it hit the Queue on the Vista PC but it does not print and the job goes away in the print queue. I tried loading the lastest driver on one of the Windows 7 Pcs with the same results.
