I have a windows xp sp3 failed to install a printer on http://servername/printers. Other xp sp3 boxes connect to this printer over the web is OK. The error message is very simple "install printer failed". I did the fix by editing the registry key but still not work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Are the server and client both 32 bit?

I hae seen this where the server is 64 bit, the client is 32 bit and the 32 bit drivers haven't been installed.

Have you tried to install the printer manually first, telling the install that the printer is on a local port, the try connecting to the network shared one again?
