how to solve "pinter access denied" error vista

When you try to connect shared network printer to windows vista sometimes it displayed "Access is Denied" error message. but you can access network shared files and folders, and you cant connect shared printer to the system. to overcome this issue you can add the shared printer as a local printer. follow these steps.
  • Go to the control panel
  • Double click printers icon
  • Now click on add a printer
  • Click on add a local Printer
  • Choose Create a New Port with port type of Local Port from the drop down menu , then click Next
  • In the Port Name box type the path to the printer you wish to connect to and click ok , (ex-\\computer name\printer name)
  • In the Install Printer Driver screen, select your printer from the list or choose Have Disk and specify drivers to install printer
  • Newly installed should be in the printers window
  • Test the printer by using test print
Now you should now be able to print from Windows Vista to this networked shared printer
