A friend has a Epson Stylus RX500 printer. She wants to share it between her WinXP desktop and her Win7 laptop.
The printer is connected direct to her WinXP desktop, and she can print fine from there.
But the Win7 laptop can't print -- it can see the shared printer on the network, but it can't find a driver for it. (And looking on the web, I don't see any Win7 drivers for it.)
However, if I connect the printer directly to the Win7 laptop, it works, it can print.
This suggests that there is a driver for it, but for some reason, it can't find a driver when connecting to the printer over the network.
My question is: if a printer works when connected directly to the machine, should it still work over the local network?
