  I have a client that's got an XP Pro machine where I can't seem to create
a network printer. I run through the Add Printer wizard, which all goes
perfectly, but nothing shows up in the list. I've pointed it to multiple
network printers, but I never get a printer in the list. I'm logging on as
an administrative user. This is a new XP Pro machine that's fully patched.
Any ideas?
  They've also got an XP Pro machine that has a local USB printer which
shows up in print dialogs, but doesn't show up in the Printers & Faxes list
(and does print). Weird.

know, in most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest
constraint to scaling up?! Get this free white paper to understand the
real constraints & how to overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather
than buying more servers.
