I have a small home network with one printer hooked up directly to the router and a couple others hooked to different computers. I can print to any printer I want to if I’m on any of my XP machines because I was able to load the printer drivers on to each separate computer when installing them to work over my network. The only one I can print to with my Windows 7 machine is the printer that is hooked up to the router.
I would like to be able to print to at least one other printer with my Win 7 machine but when I try adding it using “add a printer” wizard I am stopped when it tries to find a driver and can’t. The driver shows up in the list of supported printers for Win 7 but since the printer is hooked to another machine I never get that far. Also the manufacturer of my printer does not have a driver download available for me to download and place in to a folder where I could direct the “add a printer” wizard to look for the driver.
So is there a way to find where this driver is stored on my machine and direct the printer installation wizard to it when it asks for the driver?
