When you create a new user that USER also needs to be created on machines that serve up printers and shares. Many forget that item when it comes to Windows networking.
Let's hope it's the usual accounts issues.
I am gonna describe my problem as cleary and concise as possible :
I have a desktop computer running under windows XP Professional SP3 that has a wireless card in order to connect to my router at home. On this PC i have setup an HP laser printer and enabled the sharing of it through my router.
I have 3 laptops, who are perfectly able to use that printer without any problem. Of course, everytime I had to turn on the desktop PC in order for the sharing to take place but that's not the point.
On one of the laptops (a Sony Vaio) running under Windows Vista, a problem of windows live messenger and wifi occured, and I was able to solve it by creating a new user profile and deleting the old one. Now here comes the problem : Since I have created a new user, i am not able by any means to use the HP printer anymore on the Vaio ! ! It accepts to set up the driver and everything, and recognize it and is able to locate it on the network, but when i come to print the test page, it gives me an error message (i forgot what it is since it's in french, but it's something related to the right of accessing the printer). When i try to print things other than the test page, it doesn't work either, but it doesn't give me any message. It just doesn't print.
I tried everything i can think of, uninstall all printer drivers from that laptop and reinstall them, also uninstalled the printer driver from the desktop pc and reinstalled it on it and on all the laptops but still, no improvement. As for the other laptops they don't have any problem at all with printing, and they're also running under windows vista.
If anyone ever encountered this problem or has any solution, i'd be glad if you could help me out !
PS : I am really worried that deleting the first user on the Vaio might have been a big mistake. The HP printer, upon receiving the order to print from the Vaio, might try communicating with the old user (I might be wrong but that's what i was thinking since on the desktop pc i was able to track the users who can access the printer)
