I have an issue with printing not reliability working between Windows 10 and Windows 7.
Specifically I have a host machine running Windows 10 which has a USB printer connected to it and is shared. The client machine is Windows 7. Both machine are not part of an AD domain - on the same home network. I got told it was coming up with Access denied when trying to print. There were no issues when both machine were Windows 7.
So please accept my apologies as I have not been able to look directly at the Windows 7 machine so I don't have the full picture yet.
So I am asking this as a conceptual question first - is this type of printer sharing possible - or do I need to upgrade the *client* machine from Windows 7 to Windows 10?
Any other troubleshooting steps I you can recommend.
I did have a look btw way at the Windows 10 and can confirm the printer was shared.
Once I get some feedback from here I will then know where to go next.
Also I am not sure if both machine are x86 or x64 - could there be an issue here - say an x86 Windows 7 printing to a x64 Win10?
