    Hi all

    Hope u can help, ive added a new XP Pro client machine to the clients SBS
    4.5 network, done it via the MS white paper on how to do this, all seems to
    have worked ok apart from it didnt install the printers for the user.

    So i added them manually but when ever i click the print button in any
    program or even the test page it just hangs.

    Can anyone help?

  2. Hi Stew


    What kind of printer? Have you checked the HCL to be sure the printer is
    supported by Windows XP?

    Is the printer attached to the client workstation or the Server?
