Usb Epson Rx620 Printer Sharing


I've got w7 x86 installed with a usb epson rx620 working great. The pc i'm trying to share the printer with is vista ultimate x64. When i search the network for the printer, find it, select it, i get a message about "the server does not have the right driver".

So, i came here and i followed these really great, detailed steps to set up sharing to other pcs on my home network: http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/88b53ce6-b613-4e05-8da3-00e40c2d612b

When i get to the part in these instructions that allows you to add additional drivers, the x86 are already present, the x64 are not. As expected. When i select to add the x64 drivers (presumably the ones that the vista x64 machine is requesting), i get prompted to select the location of the the driver. Hence the problem. Everything i can find on epson's site and ms sites say that "vista drivers get automatically downloaded and installed".

I can't find anywhere the driver to just download and then use. Can anyone suggest a work around for this?

Epson Photo Rx620 Printer

I recently upgraded from vista premium 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit. My epson photo rx 620 printer worked fine on vista, but doesn't work on windows 7. When i run the printer troubleshooter it tries to download the drivers for this printer, but fails. I contacted epson and they say the printer is compatible with windows 7 and i should get the drivers from microsoft. The microsoft driver download site doesn't list the rx 620 in either the "compatible list" or the "incompatible list".

Every time i try to send microsoft an email, i get the page telling me i have to pay for their help. Does anyone know how i can get the proper drivers for my printer?

Epson Cx4600 Printer Will Not Work

Ms says epson cx4600 printer is win7 compatible with driver from epson. Epson says they have no intention of providing driver. I just purchased a pc with win7. Epson cx4600 printer will not work with win7.microsoft win7 compatibility chart indicates that the printer is compatible (proudly displaying the win7 compatibility logo) and provides a link to download a driver.

The link takes you to the epson site which states that no driver is available for the cx4600 printer. I emailed epson about the availability of a driver. Their response was that epson would not be providing a win7 driver. So any suggestions to make epson cx4600 work with win7?

Epson 1280 Printer Problem

I just upgraded from vista 32 to win 7 64 (clean install) with only a few problems (love win 7!)But i'll confine this post to one problem in particular:

I have two printers installed: hp laserjet 1020 and epson 1280 inkjet. I have creatacard installed in xp mode and it works fine. In the usb tab, i've left the printers in share mode (both show up, the hp is labeled with its full name, the epson is labeled with only "usb printer" - perhaps a clue to the problem?) I can print to the hp printer from creatacard but not to the epson printer. If i first start xp mode and take the "usb printer" out of share mode, then creatacard can print to it (one extra step).

Additional information: the epson printer does not show up on the "devices and printers" page and yet it does show up in the print dialog when printing a document directly from a win 7 application.

I have a creatacard icon on the win 7 desktop and it launches creatacard full screen just the way i want it to - and - it prints right out of the box to the hp printer with no intermediate action by me. I would like the same capability for the epson printer.

Question: what can i do to allow use of the epson printer in share mode for xp mode programs?

Ps, in system information - printer, the epson 1280 shows up on usb002 port and carried the right description, "epson stylus photo 1280 (m)". The hp laserjet shows up on port usb001. When i do attempt to print with the epson printer in share mode (labeled as "usb printer" in the usb dialog but corrected labeled as epson 1280 in the creatacard printer dialog box) i get an error message, "epson status monitor 3: communication error". To get rid of it i have to start task manager and stop the epson status monitor application.

Epson Stylus C60 Printer Driver Not Found

I have a shared printer (epson stylus c60) on a windows xp desktop. When trying to install the printer on a network laptop using windows 7, i get a driver not found on network message. There are no printer drivers available from epson. Their web site states that says to use the "built-in windows 7 driver". That driver does work on the laptop when the printer is connected to it directly. But when on the network, it comes up with an error message that says the "driver cannot be found on the network".

Epson R200 Printer - Custom Print Settings Save

How do i save custom print settings on epson r200 printer in windows 7? I recently purchased a new dell with windows 7, and i have an epson r200 printer. When i go to "advanced" print settings i do not see an option for saving them. For example, when using photoshop i want to save glossy photo paper type, photo print quality, etc. This is annoying because i need to reset them every time i want to print. I used to be able to save custom settings in windows xp.

Printer Sharing

I have upgraded a machine to win7 - it has the printer connected by usd. My main machine is still vista ultimate so i have not yet been able to use homegroup. The vista machine can see the win7 (its part of the workgroup) and i can access all users and files (interestingly though in explorer i have 2 instances of this pc showing?)

In explorer i see a printers folder but nothing in it. Under network and sharing i see my canon printer too. However when i click it i get error 0x00000709. I have tried to follow the instructions on another post but they are all about adding an xp machine not a vista machine.

Homegroup Printer Sharing

I run two machines in my office - one a laptop the other a sun workstation. The laptop has windows 7 home edition installed the sun workstation windows 7 pro'. I have setup successfully a home group on both machines i have both visible on each machine. I can share files on both machines.

I have two printers - hp1300 laserjet1300 & epson styles dx 4800 series installed on the sun system
They both work there very well via the usb ports. The problem is that i cannot get the laptop to configure these printers - even though it sees them. I think it appears to be a question of access & permissions, not that sure. At any rate when i attempt to install the network printer it always fails to find a driver - no amount of manual direction from me can overcome its very stubborn resistance to demands. It can also not find the path or even the printer.

Messages i get are :

Windows cannot access \(computername)cwindowssystem32spoolprinters
You do not have permission to access (above path) contact your network administrator
To request permissions

When i select a printer when both are listed as choice on install a network printer option, both listed with their correct computer & share names. I have even tried trying to install them as local printers and manually selecting a local port in order to for a connection, but always i get an error message saying incorrect share names etc. I have no experience of administration rights or allowable permissions, must be the problem. Everything is ticked as allowed in homegroup setup. The printers are annotated as sharing allowed. I am stumped any ideas you out there ?

Printer Sharing Through Xp To Win7

Alright, here's what i have:

- Desktop 1á- windows 7 64x bit: there is now printer device on this computer.
- Laptop 1 - windows xp 32x bit: there is a printer connected to this computer through a specific printer port. (This is an older printer).
- Laptop 2 - windows vista 64x bit: there is a newerd, usb port printer connected to this computer.

All these computers are connected to the same network, however, the laptops are connected to my router wirelessly, while my destop is connected through an ethernet cat 5 cable.

Here's my problem. I'm having trouble finding a way to share both these printers (from laptop 1 and 2) with my windows 7 computer. I've tried almost everything. There has to be a way for me to connect both these printers to this computer. Here's what i've done so far:

I went to "devices and printers" >> "add a printer", i found the printer on laptop 1, but i was unable to find the printer on laptop 2. I setup the printer from laptop 1, and it said it installed the drivers, but when i try printing something, nothing happens. There's one problem. Like i mentioned before, i was unable to find the newer printer from laptop 2. I tried typing in the computer name, and searching for it manually, and still, nothing comes up.

Internet Connection Sharing Using 3g Usb Router

I have three machines, two running win 7 and one xp machine. My internet connection is via a 3g usb connection on my main machine running win 7. I recently purchased a d-linkdap-1160 wireless router so that i can share the internet connection. It seems win 7 cannot or will not share the 3g connection when using the outer. If i set up an ad-hoc wireless network and exclude the router then ics works with no problem.

As soon as i try to set ics and use the router then everything falls over and i lose the internet and the wireless network. If the 3g connection is installed on the xp machine and shared using ics then i have no problems. Do the same thing on win 7 and it will not work. My local techie suggests setting up a proxy server on win 7 main machine and letting that handle the internet sharing. Any other ideas?

Sharing Printer Problem Between Win 7 & Xp

Problem with sharing printer between windows 7 & and windows xp. I have a hp 1150 laser printer that is connected to my windows 7 (home premium 64bit) computer by usb. I want to share it with another pc running xp pro (sp3), but can't find a suitable printer driver. I have read the thread about sharing printers, and have carried out most of the steps.

My problem is that although i can see the printer from the xp machine, it requires a suitable driver. I had previously installed the hp drivers and the printer works fine by direct usb connection to the xp machine, but it appears i need an appropriate driver installed on the w7 machine as well - and i can't seem to find one that works. Any ideas what to do ?

Printer Sharing Between Win7 Host And Xp

Printer sharing between windows 7 (printer host) and windows xp. (Additional drivers problem). I have my canon pixma ip4000 installed and working on a windows 7 (x64) machine, furthermore i have a laptop running windows xp (x86). The two pcs find each other in the 'workgroup' and the printer is visible from the windows xp machine as well.

I 2xclick the printer in 'workgroup' and it wants to find the proper driver (x86) to install to the machine. On the windows 7 machine i have to have the driver for the xp machine to find and install. - So i go to the sharing properties of the printer and click the 'additional drivers' button which lets me choose between 3 things; itanium (type 3 - user mode), x64 (installed) and finally x86 which is the one i of course need for it to work with xp x86.

I go and download the canon driver for windows xp x86, and try to add it via the 'additional driver' option, i find the proper '. Inf' from the newly downloaded folder and click ok.

But this message follows: "the specified location does not contain the driver canon inkjet pixma ip4000 for the requested processor architecture. " - Even though i know its the right driver.

How do i solve this issue? Nb: i tried having the driver on the laptop and via the 'workgroup' adding the printer, but it wont work either.

Sharing of a printer connected to the other windows 7 machine works fine for allámachines.connecting the vista machines to a printer on a vista machine works.

Howeveráwhen i try to connect the windows 7 machines to the vista machine printer i get the connection window running for a long time (30-40 minutes ) and then get the message "can't connect to the printer". Trying to install the printer as a local port with thecomputer printer as the port returns "access denied" the printers are the same model brother mfc-9440 so the driver is already on all machines.

Sharing Printer In Win 7 And Vista

I have a laptop with a full install of windows 7, not an upgrade. The machine i am using as a print server has vista home. All the other computers that are on the network, whether they are vista or xp, have access the printer. I am the only one who has a problem. When i installed the network printer on my win 7 machine, part of the install process was printing a test page, which worked fine. That was the last document printed from the win 7 machine (on the network).

I followed the instructions found at: http://www.Howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/share-files-and-printers-between-windows-7-and-xp/. After 15 minutes of work, i have the same problem. To be clear, my win 7 machine is networked with a vista machine, which has the printer connected to it. I see the printer on the win 7 machine, the drivers are installed, and others on the network have no problem printing.

The File And Printer Sharing (smb) Problem

The device or resource (pc name) is not setup to accept connections on port "the file and printer sharing (smb)". Long enough i have suffered with this problem, hopefully this will be the place that is able to solve it. A while ago, when i installed windows 7, the file sharing feature just worked fine. Thoughtásince a month, maybe 2 its not working at all. I haveá2 pc's. One laptop with windows xp 64-bit, one main pc with windows 7 64-bit (windows 7 ultimate n build 7600).

The problem: i haveáfile sharing turned on, thought i cannot access the desktop pc from my laptop. (Not by name nor ip address). On the desktop pc itself, i cannot look into the shared files (which are on the same pc!). The ironical part of this is that is does show what files are sharedá(and this updates correctly) thought it wont show the content. Also the desktop pc cannot see any other pcáon the network, thought they all have the same workgroup. The laptop is able to see and access other windows xp pc's who are in the same network, but not the desktop (windows 7) pc.

Some tests i did:
#1 from my laptop i can ping to my desktop.
#2 from my desktop i can ping to my laptop.
#3 i uninstalled northon ghost (even with the removal tool), no changes.
#4 i turned off eset nod32, windows firewall and windows defender, no changes.
#5 i uninstalled the drivers of my network card and reinstalled them, no changes.
#6 i checked if the serveces started that might have something to do with this:
-> "Computer browsing" -> started
-> "Ssdp discovery" -> started
-> "Tcp/ip netbios helper" -> started
-> "Server" -> started

#7 when i turn on network discovery, it will automatically go back to "off". (I used to be able, when all worked, to turn this on!)

#8 set pc back to a restore point 20 days ago (this unfortunately was the earliest i could find, thought even on that date i had problems. )
Change sharing options for different network profiles is configured as following:
Homeá& work (current profile)
Turn off network discovery (! I cant turn this on !)
Turn on file and printer sharing
Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write.
Media streaming is off (also with "on", no changes)
Use 128-bit encryption to help. (Also with "40-áor 56-bit", no changes.
Allow windows to manage homegroup connections
Errors:
#1 whenái open network, it shows my desktop pc only in the list. (I used to have all the pc's in the list)
#2 whenái click my desktop pc's name, it shows which folders are shared: "some folder" & "users" are shared.
#3 when i click eighter of these folders i get the notification: "windows cannot access jeffreyusers"
#4 when i click "diagnose" it shows: "the remote device or resource won't accept the connection" and "the device or resource (jeffrey) is not set up to accept connections on port "the file and printer sharing (smb)". "
á
Solution: the problem is caused by a corrupted file.

The dns client and the dhcp client rely on 3 processes in windows 7: "nsi, tdx and afd" (can be found in the registry, see 2nd post of mine for location). If the dhcp client wont start, it might be, because of one of these files. By entering the command: "net start nsi"á (and tdx, and adf) you can find out if they work or not. In my case the tdx process wouldn't start.

Using shinmila h. 2nd post, you can find out if the file is corrupted, and replace them with a non corrupted one. In my case the tdx.sys file was totally empty, and following the tutorial of shinmila h. 2nd post link, i was able to replace the file, with a file of my friend. (I couldn't find it on the installation dvd).

Once the file has been replaced, the service would start normally again. (Manually, or automatically on restart) who knows what i have to do, to make windows sharing possible again, between a windows 7 and a windows xp pc.
