Re: Cannot print to network printer on the PC it is installed on
Are the other two PCs XP boxes? If so the problem might be due to not
having a Vista compatible driver for the printer that doesn't work on the
vista machine. Yeah, this is a bit counterintuitive, but because we often
do print job rendering on the client, you could have a driver on the Vista
box that runs fine on the XP machines that use the Vista box as a server.
In any case, the path I'd check first is to go to the printer manufacturer
website & see if they have a Vista driver for the printer.
