    Connecting a Vista laptop to a shared printer on an XP computer?

    I have added the print drivers for my HP LaserJet 3030 to my Vista laptop. I
    can see the shared printer on the network connected to my XP desktop. When I
    try to connect I get an error 0x0000046a. How do I get this to work?

    Dave

    I extracted this from the Vista x64.com website. 'George' appears to have
    found the answer. Give it a try.

    "Hurrah ! Hurrah !

    I finally found the solution !

    Went to:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...EN-US;q177078&

    On the XP machine, on which the printer is connected, I increased

    Increas"IRPStackSize" from the existing 11 to 14 (increment of 3) according
    to recommensdation.

    And could install the Printer, No Sweat.

    Georgio, again.
