The HP printers are the biggest problem in that they typicaly install alot of other software at the same time.. You didn't include the OS or printer type in your question.

How do I Open old seattle filmworks disc on windows xp?

To begin you must have the Photoworks program on your PC. There were Photoworks 1.2 that ran on dos, then Photoworks PLUS version 1.02, then Photoworks release 1 version 1.02F, then finally Photoworks PLUS version 2.20 I believe installing any version will work on XP as I installed the latest one on my old XP PC bypassing the others and it works. I'm trying to copy the photos to save to CD or DVD disc and think I may have to open each photo individually and use jshot or another photo capture program to copy them. I tried to contact Flimworks for a CD version of the program but never got a reply. I assume they never provided a CD version as they moved on to newer technology leaving myself and others with numerous photos on disk in the stone-age. good luck.

How do you share windows XP network printer with Windows 7?

I am sharing a Dell Photo AIO Printer 926 running on an XP computer with a computer on the network running Windows 7. When I started, the printer was already installed and working on the XP computer and set up to be shared on the network. Then I ran the 926 printer installation disk (the disk that came with the printer) on the Windows 7 computer. At some point it asked me if the printer was connected to another computer on the network. When I answered "yes" it asked for the name of the other computer on the network and the shared name of the printer. After I answered those questions it proceeded to "install" the printer as if it was connected to the Windows 7 machine and it works perfectly. I was surprised that worked, after having tried many times (unsuccessfully) to connect to it by installing new drivers on the Windows 7 computer. So I would suggest using the printer installation disk on the Windows 7 computer. If you do not have the disk I would suggest trying to get one from the printer manufacturer.
