    Hey all and thanks ahead

    Background before the question
    I work for an architecture firm and are the test subjects to upgradin
    because we are the graphics department with all the programs that ho
    memory and have all the 64-bit programs... Adobe Photoshop CS4, 3DS Ma
    2009 and Revit 2008. I recently upgraded my machine to Vista Busines
    x64 and all my co-workers except for one other (who also upgraded wit
    me to Vista Business x64) are all on XP x86 machines

    Okay, we have problems with the network printers that are shared on
    server machine. Issue is, everyone can print all day til we print ou
    something. (Yes, are machine recognize the printers... it is not a
    can't see them or are they shared on the server). After it stop
    everyone, we can keep on printing ourselves. The only way to fix it i
    to reset the server machine to recognize the printer again

    Is there any local fix from the take over from happening... or is it o
    the server machine? Actually, what is the fix? Currently are work aroun
    is to jump on a computer that hasn't been used by anyone for years (X
    x86) to print

    Thanks ahea
