One would think, after all this time, that if you have a “shared” printer on Win XP that you can see with Vista (in my case Vista 64 home premium) (HP-970 cxi printer) that you should just click on it and connect and print….
oh contraire! one must define a new local port and then install the printer as follows….Create new port, “local port”, then Vista asks “port name”. In “port name” “\\my computer name(where my printer is installed)\printer name”. Solution found here. (http://forums.techguy.org).
So there is yet one more Vista wierdness…..
