    Thank-you for this support post! As soon I replaced my Home Vista machine
    that I was using to share a printer on my home network, the Windows Vista
    Home Premium SP1 decided to stop printing. "Windows cannot connect to the
    printer. Access is denied." After several hours of trying, all types of
    work arounds, including moving the printer to another machine running the
    same operating system as its replacement, WIndows XP Home Edition 2002 SP3,
    it only took 5 mins to fix the problem after finding this article.

    Thanks very much. I was having the same issue, only printing from a Windows 7
    Ultimate 32 bit PC to an EPSON Stylus C88+ on a Windows XP Home PC. I have
    been trying to fix this issue for awhile and called EPSON, who couldn't solve
    the problem and told me I had to contact Microsoft. But, this has finally
    fixed the promblem.
