Sharing Printers between Windows 7 Home and Windows XP Pro
Posted on 2010-09-21
I am trying to share a printer between a Windows 7 Home PC and a Windows XP Pro PC.
- The HP printer is connected to the windows 7 PC via a USB cable and shared
- The HP printer can be added successfully to the windows XP Pro PC with no problems and print.
- When you reboot the Windows XP Pro PC and try to print, the printer says "Access Denied"
- You then have to delete the Printer and Re-add , but every time you reboot the xp PC , you receive an access denied message for the shared printer.
If I remove the password for logging on the Windows 7 PC, then the XP pro printing works fine even after a reboot.
Hpwever I would like to mauntain a password on the Windows 7 PC for security , how can this problem be fixed ?
