Win XP / printing problems when multible user accounts

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

Hi!

I have Win XP / Canon LBP-660 @ LPT1. I have two user accounts (two
different logon names) let's say "user_1" abd "user_2". When only the
user_1 is logged on, printing works fine. But when user_2 is also logged
on, the printing does not work with user_1 (*) (however vice versa it
works). Does anyone have any tip how to solve this problem?

(*): A window appers and says "Printer Error : printing failed when
starting the document"

    You need to set Windows for sharing both ways.
