Not able to name share printer
I am using Vista Ultimate. When I try to share a printer I get a message
that the share name already exsist. Where can I go to remove this?
I removed the file and printer sharing then deselected this printer from
sharing. I then turned on file and print sharing when I tried to enable
sharing with this printer that is when I started getting the message.

Re: Not able to name share printer
If this is an upgrade from XP, the printer will not get migrated but the
Server service will migrate the share name information. Take a look under
this registry key for the share name

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\lanmanserver\Shares

I don't recall if you have to reboot or not after clearing the stale data.
