Using HP LaserJet 1300 shared by Win2k3 32-bit from Vista 64-bit
I'm unable to map a share from my 64-bit Vista system to my Win2k3 server.
Tells me it doesn't have the right driver. Called HP, told them the system
was well out of warranty, they yanked me around, made me get the serial
number, told me it was out of warranty (which I'd JUST told them), and they
then offered to sell me another printer or charge me $40 for one call. I'm
not happy with their lack of support - last HP printer I'll ever buy.
So I then moved the printer to another Vista-64 system on my network,
installed it there (works fine), mapped the share from my 64-bit system, it
prints, all good. My thinking is that now that the printer driver is
installed, I ought to be able to move it back to the server where it belongs
and re-map the share. No joy - still tells me that the server has the wrong
drivers, though I obviously have the right ones locally now.
Seems like there should be some work-around for this... Maybe I should just
move it back to the Vista system.
