The printing system in Vista is not the same as XP. When you connect to the
printer on the XP machine, it tries to install incompatible XP drivers. You
may be able to install the printer locally (even though it isn't there)
provided Vista has drivers or the manufacturer has released Vista drivers,
and then change the port to \\xpmachine\printersharename .
