Connecting a Vista laptop to a shared printer on an XP computer?
I have added the print drivers for my HP LaserJet 3030 to my Vista laptop. I
can see the shared printer on the network connected to my XP desktop. When I
try to connect I get an error 0x0000046a. How do I get this to work?

Dave

I extracted this from the Vista x64.com website. 'George' appears to have
found the answer. Give it a try.

"Hurrah ! Hurrah !

I finally found the solution !

Went to:

http://support.microsoft.com/default...EN-US;q177078&

On the XP machine, on which the printer is connected, I increased

Increas"IRPStackSize" from the existing 11 to 14 (increment of 3) according
to recommensdation.

And could install the Printer, No Sweat.

Georgio, again.
