Problem Installing Network Printer

  dr_peppercycling 22:04 03 Oct 2005

Had to re-install Windows 98 on my old PC, which is part of a Workgroup along with an XP PC. Tied to install network printer (HP 6540) which is attached to XP machine but drivers would not download even though network was OK. Clicked on HAVE DISK but after selecting file and clicking Ok nothing happened. Have re-installed windows 98 to noavail.

Is the printer set as "Shared" on the XP machine?

Printer is set-up for sharing. All worked well with my old Epsom printer - this problem only came to light after installation of the new HP printer.

Is the new printer set as the default printer.
