hi, i am trying to share my printer (HP Photosmart C5280 All-in-One) to a Sony Vaio Intel Centrino T5200 (VGN-FE2) 2GHz, 1GB RAM laptop running WinXP Pro SP3.

i am stuck on the part where i go to add 'Additional Drivers...' on the Sharing tab of the printer's properties page.

i select x86 Type 3 - User Mode and press OK. it asks me to Install print drivers (x86 processor). i press Browse... and select the first file hpohsla.inf. i opened this file and in there, a little bit down the page it says "Operating system version recognition is supported for Windows XP and later NT-based operating systems.". so i think this is the correct file to select but i am not 100% sure of this.

i click OK and then it asks me to Install Components From Windows media. Please provide a path to Windows media (x86 processor).

this is where i am stuck. i don't know where to find the ntprint.inf file it's asking me for. i have tried the drivers folder on the install disc that came with the printer but it's not on there. i did a search for it and turned up zero results.

my specs:

Core i7-860
Gigabyte P55A-UD5
G.Skill-Trident 4GB DDR3-1600
Sapphire HD5870 1GB
ViewSonic 19" WS (2ms)
WD SATA 1TB HDD x2
LG SATA 18x DVDRW x2
Thermaltake Evo_Blue 750Watt PSU
Noctua NH-C12P-SE14

running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

i can add the printer on the laptop as i see the path for it, but it asks for the driver there. as it's not installed on my Win 7 machine it won't find it.

so what i am asking is where can i get the ntprint.inf for x86 Type 3 - User Mode?
i have searched google as i have been trying to find it and a solution on how to successfully share the printer to WinXP but i haven't had much luck.
