Hi all,

I have added a USB printer to one of my machines. On my other machine, I can only see the printer when I try and add it when I am logged on as the administrator. When logged on as myself I cannot see the printer to add it. Has anyone seen this before and know what to do.

Many thanks,

Mike

Did you make the printer a "Shared" printer? Admin has higher level permissions so that may be why.

I made my Printer a share and then browsed to it when adding... \\computer1\printername

Disable your firewall, if you can add it then, then you will have to enable file sharing (asuming your haven't)
