Printer Sharing Missing from OneCare Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my main PC, where I havce two printers connected, in my "Windows Live OneCare Settings" menu, I have "Firewall," "Tune-up," "Backup," "Viruses and Spyware," and "Logging" but not "Printer Sharing."  I DO have "Printer Sharing" listed on my laptop.  Downloaded the software from the same disk.  Any advise as to how to get "Printer Sharing" on my desktop???

  • Open OneCare on the PC without the Printer Sharing tab and click Help/About. I suspect that you will see that it is version 1.6, which does not have Printer Sharing. The PC with it showing is using version 2.0 and was likely installed later. When you install OneCare, from the web or from CD, it installs the latest available version. Upgrades to 2.0 were suspended in December and will resume in January.
