I have a newly installed Windows 7 64-bit on my computer, and I had a HP LaserJet 1012 previously installed on Windows XP 32-bit, which Windows is not allowing me to share under the upgraded OS.

Maybe you should turn on File- and Printersharing in your Network-Center (I don't know how it's called in english. In german it's called "Netzwerk und Freigabecenter").

I think you network is not working correctly. if everything ok then
Open Network and sharing center then goto Change Advanced Sharing Settings. Here check the settings for file and printer sharing on your network etc. Password protected sharing etc.
