Since I got a new Windows 7 my laptop, which runs Windows XP can’t print from my printer. How do I make Windows 7 recognize the laptop so they can share the printer?

    Are they properly networked? can you view files from your laptop on you windows 7? Is the printer shared on windows 7 and are the permissions set properly? What error do you get?

    You could try making use of a printserver - as software.
