    I am running vista 32bit on my desktop with 2 epson printers attached to it. I share these printers with my vista 64bit laptop. I can print just fine but ONLY when the desktop sharing is still on. it mysteriously un-shares itself and my print jobs do not go through from the laptop. I have tried several things, I used Live One care to share printers but found that did not work well. I disabled that and just shared from the printers folder. It happens if I share just one printer manually or all printers through network sharing. It may be a few days before it stops sharing the printer, but it will stop.

    I thought it might be because I RD into the desktop machine and i had brig printers here checked. But ti still does it.

    Any thoughts???

    Not an expert on using Remote Desktop, but since it messes with the ownership of the printers, I wouldn't be surprised if it disabled sharing when you use it. Sorry, don't know of any way around that.
