    I have a simple Inkjet connected to my desktop PC via a USB cable.
    I have it share over my local home network.
    The Computer i am attpemting to connect to the shared printer is running Vista. I can browse the network, and can see the shared printer, but when i attempt to browse, or add a shared printer, i keep receiving this error msg:
    The server for the "Cannon Inkjet iP6310C" printer does not have the correct print driver installed.
    I have downloaded and installed the Canon driver on the Vista machine, as well as the Windows 7 box.
    There is an item with the printers folder. When i double click this folder, i again see the canon inkjet print que, but I am un-able to connect to the printer.
    I have tried just about everything, and am at the point of giving up.
    I have tried to add a local printer, and to add a port pointing to the share computer, but i get an access denied msg which i can not get around.

    Please help if you can

    Thank you
