Cannot print from XP Laptop via Vista desktop

  knapps 23:31 04 Oct 2007

My desktop is linked via USB to a Canon Laser Printer and to a Canon Inkjet.
My laptop prints via the desktop.
Both ran Windows XP.
I have upgraded the Desktop which now runs Vista premium.
The Canon Laser has no available driver so has been disconnected.
I cannot get the laptop to print. I'm sure all my sharing is OK (unless there is a less obvious thing I could have missed).
Any ideas gratefully received.

Have a look in the Vista desktop printer drivers for the sharing option ...start/settings/printers , right click on your preferred printer and select " properties , then second tab " sharing " tick the boxes .
