Printer sharing in Windows XP

By ann ·
I am setting up Windows XP workstations. I need to to be able to share network printers, which I have added on using the printer wizard when Logged on as an Administrator.

When I logon as any other user I can't see any of the printers and I can'teven add a printer.

How can I resolve this problem.

I am using Roaming Profiles and all users will be roaming

1. create another account (ex. printuser) with administraive access on the xp machine. Log on as printuser. create the printer and any settings you want. logoff printuser. logon as administrator, go to c:\documents and settings, copy everything inthe printuser folder into the "all users" folder.

2. Give all users administrative access over the machine.

this its posible when you go to printer share by a workstation and you select the users create on that workgroup or domain and add it from the list. Just go to Start,control panel,printer and ..,view installed printers,select the share printer then right click to show sharing and security tab you may add the people you desire to give access.
