    Help!! WinXp will not print over a network!

    Three comps, win2k, winXP pro, winXP home. Printer hooked to the win2k machine, all three comps see each other and can share files etc., all see the printer etc., but every time I try to print from the winXP home machine I get this error "handle is invalid" and it will not print, but the winXP pro machine prints just fine.
    Any ideas?

    Tell us more abot your printers, maker, model and type.

    Did you run the printer wizard on each computer to connect each printer?

    Did you use 2K or XP drivers when setting up the XP machines?

    Did you activate the guest account on the 2K machine?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Yes

    XP installed it's own drivers

    No, doesen't need to be activated from everything I have ever read, the other winXP machine works and prints just fine

    Are you running NTFS on the other two machines?
