I have a new pc running Windows 7 Pro.  It is connected to a SBS2003 domain.  I log into a non administrator account.   I installed an HP Photosmart 5280 printer to the Windows 7 Pro pc.  

There is a Windows XP pro pc attached to the domain.  I have shared the printer on the Win 7 pc .  The XP pro pc can access the printer.

The problem:
 - On the XP pro pc, when go to print something and click on the properties button on the right, I get the message:

Function address 0x4f5e2258 caused a protection fault. (exception code 0xc0000005)  Some or all property pages may not be displayed.


How do I troubleshoot this?

I would suggest you to install drivers correct with Windows 7 version (i.e. 32 / 64 bit), likewise provide additional set of drivers for Windows XP (i.e. 32 / 64 bit)

You can refer to this link

I downloaded the basic XP 32 bit printer driver from HP.com.  I ran the exe file.  The driver installed.  However, I still have the same problem.  In the Printers and Faxes on the XP Pro pc, when I right click on the HP C5280 printer and click on Printer preferences, I still get the error:

"Function address 0x45e2258 caused a protection fault  .. etc etc"

I assume I have to replace the existing printer driver with the new one I installed.  

Q1.)  How do I convince the XP Pro pc there is a new driver installed for the HP C5280 printer?

Q2.)  What else must I do to solve this problem?

Hello Gajendra_Rathod:

I read all the text of the hotfix.  

It seems to me the hotfix is for network printers connected to a SBS2003 server.   My C5280 printer is connected to a Windows 7 pc as a shared printer.  It is not shared on the server itself.   The text in the hotfix email says it has not been tested.   I am wondering if this hotfix would cause major problems.

If I create a restore point first, and then apply the hotfix, if the hotfix does not work, will the restore point essentially remove the hotfix?

First please update to latest service pack and update on windows XP machine. normally it should resolve the issue.


In case issue still persist,  Please take the restore point , remove the driver for C5280 as mention in text in hotfix and install hotfix.

Unfortunately I have not been able to work on this issue.  It may be quite a while before I can .  I will assign points now and repost the question if I have further difficulties.  Thank you all for prompt answers.
