    I have a deck top (Dell with xp) with a printer set up to run from it. I also have a Dell laptop with Vista. I have tried to set up printer sharing for two days with no luck.I went through all the right processes(?) and when I go to print from my Vista I get a script message.

    Is there a secret to doing this?

    What printer are you using? For some reason I have had problems with Cannon and Epson printers when doing this but all others work fine.

    Lexmark-I called the company and they told me the printer is not set up for wireless but I know I have used it to print before.

    make sure you have a network setup
    make sure you have printer and file sharing enabled
    make sure the printer is shared.
    make sure the drivers on on both PCs.

    thats all i did to share my dell inkjet j740 which is a usb printer.
