How can I set up a printer on and XP machine that is visible over my MS network from a W7 PC?
Posted on 2013-12-25
I have an old Toshiba printer attached to a Windows XP machine. This is on a Windows network with a router which also connects my Windows 7 PCs.
I have finally managed to install a driver for the printer on a W7 PC, as I understand that the correct driver has to be installed on the client when accessing the PC with the printer.
The printer is shared on XP.
It is not configured to be seen on the network.
On the W7 PC I see a printer of the right type but this would be a direct connected one which doesn't exist. I think this shows the driver is installed on the W7.
I don't think I have to add another driver for W7 on the XP machine, and I couldn't anyway I am sure.
Thank you for any help
