I was trying to access a Windows XP printer from my Windows 7 machine. My printer is fine. And attempting to connect would give me the error message: windows cannot connect to the printer 0x0000000a. How can I solve this?

In order to share a printer of Windows XP with the Windows 7, follow these steps:

First, make sure that the windows XP printer is shared. And suppose it is named SHAREDPRINTER on the XPMACHINE.
Also, make sure that you are able to see this shared printer in the windows seven.

On Windows 7 :
Go to Control Panel, then add the local printer. And actually we are doing the“poodlefaking” the machine of Windows 7 into thinking this is running actually the printer.
Now select the “Create new port”, also ensure that the port type is “Local port”.
And the port name should be set to \XPMACHINESHAREDPRINTER

Hopefully, this answer is helpful, easier and clearer steps to fix the problem.

1. Check the hardware

Check if your hardware is set up right.

2. Power Check

Check that the printer’s cord is properly plugged in and power is turned on. Since you are printing on a shared network make sure that all the PCs and routers are turned on.

3. Check the wireless printers

Check if your printer’s wireless connection is “ON” and run its connectivity test.
