Windows 7 printing

By sportguy ·
I have a network of 6 Windows XP Professional computers. They are networked in a workgroup. My problem is that I've installed a new laptop to this network and it has Windows 7 professional. Everything is working fine with the exception of printing. I cannot get it to print to the HP Printers that are locally connected to the Windows XP computers.

Then the printers can(should be able to) be added as normal, keeping in mind that the Win 7 drivers are chosen specifically, not just the ones that are shared.

Install the 7 Driver and then when asked point the Driver to the Network Printer/s through the Browse network option.

I just find that most people understand this better or at least find it easier.
