I have been researching this all day yesterday and today. I have a shared printer on a windows 7 desktop and 5 laptops I planned on attaching to the shared printer. I decided to use the workgroup method over homegroup as some of the older laptops are pre-windows 7. I managed to get 4 of the laptops (including 1 vista one) attached to the printer just fine but the last one wont connect. At first it said it couldnt find the shared printer (even after I entered it manually) so I looked for a guide on it and found a help guide that told me to go into the network adapter properties and uninstall windows client and then reinstall it. I did so and now I get a 0x000004cf error. I looked that up online and tried the workaround (using "net use lpt2" command) but that gave me an error as well that it couldnt connect. Have I done something wrong or is this a common problem. I cant get this thing to connect, any ideas?
Before anyone asks, I did make sure the workgroup name was entered correctly so I know its not that and im pretty sure its a problem with the vista laptop because all of the others connected to the shared printer just fine.
