Sharing an HP P2055dn printer to Windows7 64-bit
Posted on 2011-10-21
Got a question re sharing printer between XP (32-bit) and Win7 (64-bit).
At present the HP printer is attached to an XP box, and shared amongst 5 people. Recently I replaced one of the PCs with Windows7 (64-bit) and can't use the shared printer.
I have tried to install the win7 driver on the XP machine but that gave me error. I tried to add additional drive but that didn't work either. Is that anything else I can do to resolve this?
I don't mind switching the printer around, e.g. attaching it to the Win7 PC and share it this way, IF other XP machines can see and use the printer. I am saying IF because I don't seem to be able to install the XP driver on the Windows7 (64bit) PC either.
Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
