How can I overcome Windows XP and Windows 7 shared printer problems?
Question by Bonnie /

Hi,

I’m upgrading the computers at work from Windows XP to Windows 7 and not all computers in the one office might get upgraded at the same time. They are using a shared printer and when I upgrade one computer to 7 all of the other computers using XP can no longer print to the printer.

When they print you need to assist the printer because it prompts t0 load glossy paper. To correct this I have to go to each XP computer and change the printer driver – shouldn’t there be an eaiser way?
