Re: File and Print Sharing (mostly) work, Just not HP printer
Assuming you used the 64-bit Canon drivers on the Vista machine, you
will still need 32-bit drivers on all the XP machines. Did your Canon
printer come with a CD? If so, then it probably has all that you need to
install them. When the Canon XP setup opens, be sure to tell it that
the printer is remote to the current machine over a network. The
installer will put the 32-bit drivers on each XP machine.
My installation was "the other way round". 64-bit Vista communicating
with a Canon on one of my XP machines. I had to install the 64-bit
driver on the Vista machine and I was off to the races.
