Printing in Vista

I put it in my video that once I upgraded to Vista I could no longer print on my Deskjet 932C connected to an old Windows 2000 computer. All the other PC's could print no problem, just my new Vista printer.

 

When using Vista, I installed using the network printer option. As it turns out in Vista, this is wrong. Install using the Local Printer and Create a Local Port. Then point the local port to your network printer. In my case:

 

\\powerplay\hp932

 

Voila, I can print again! It is really unintuitive, but I guess this is progress.
