How can I share a Dell printer connected to Windows XP with a Mac?

I want to share my Dell AIO 964 printer (installed on my Windows XP computer) with my Macbook.

I succeeded in sharing it to the Macbook, but everything it printed came out blank. I tried printing from a different computer and it printed normally. I tried re-sharing the printer by uninstalling and reinstalling it, but this time it didn’t work.

By the way, I am using the Generic Postscript Driver on the Macbook.

    Thank you so much for responding so quickly. I'll try the first link, it seems like it will work.

    If the printer driver offers PCL you could try to set Windows to use PCL and add it on your MacBook using the Generic PCL driver.

    If neither PCL nor PostScript is supported by this printer you will have to use some workaround like in the first link of FIDELIS.

    According to Dell AIO 964 is not compatible with Mac. Follow the instructions on the links I am providing and hopefully it will work for you. Good luck,
