Hello,

I migrated to the mini a week ago. So far everything is exceptional and I had no problems. However, there is one thing, that doesn't work. Printing via shared printer on Windows 7.

So, I can share files with that PC and also every other PCs in network are able to print. I had PC before on the same spot, as I have my mini now (well, it is a spot now, before it was more like a football pitch Smile ) and I was able to print flawlessly. I don't even know where is the problem, the printer doesn't show up in the system preferences under windows printers, so I tried to add it manually, but no success.

I have a HP LaserJet 1020 (it seems, the driver is built into mac os, as it's listed) and I really REALLY need a printer.

Can you help please?

Did you use this procedure when trying to manually install the printer?

Hello,

the problem was the driver for the printer itself. I installed a different driver and now everything works smoothly.

Thanks anyway
