I just put an HP Deskjet 5650 on my Win 7 machine. I couldn't share it, I kept getting an error message. I had Windows Firewall disabled in Services (services.msc). I was only able to share the printer after I enabled the Windows Firewall (which I turned off after I was able to successfully share the printer). It took me many hours to solve this prob via search engines. I offer this tip in order to help others that may have the same prob sharing Win 7 printers. (Solved)
