Where does network sharing fall into your question? Are these printers
shared over your network?

Hi
From which application you are trying to print?
The first level of choice comes from within the application, and depends on
how it is set to handle files.
If the application is Not set correctly it does not even get to the point of
looking for your printers.
As for Vista Printer Sharing see this. Vista File and Printer Sharing-
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727037.aspx
If the printers are stand alone Network Printer follow carefully their
manuals instructions concerning installation on a network.

I have seen the MS site below, and I have talked to HP. I woudl like to
detail the problem and see if there is an answer...

Just got a new Vista64 system, replacing an older system, I hook up my HP
and Canon printer.
Several other computers in the house share files and use these printers.

The file sharing is fine.

The Canon can be used as a network printer by other systems.

The HP works locally but gives driver errors on machines (XP Professional)
that used to work fine.

Now, how about a resolution....??

Please
