Find Printer Drivers On Windows Xp Install Update

I have the same issue. I have a Canon i connceted to a desktop running Win XP. I want to use the printer from my lapop over the network using the desktop as I had with my previous laptop.
It goes over a network and prints via the desktop. However, it appears that the driver doesn't load without the OS detecting a new device connected to the system. You're correct in saying that the Cannon file is only an enhancement to the generic driver. So how do I get the driver loaded without connecting a printer?
Can you identify the driver name and path and perhaps some tips as to how to get it loaded? I'll run the Canon exe after I get it loaded. I found a USB cable and connected the printer directly to the laptop. This results in the printer appearing as a local printer that is offline when the cable is disconnected.
The Canon functions are there for controlling the printer. However I have a problem when I try to connect the laptop to the printer over my home network via my desktop. This results in window that shows the local printer along with 4 printer it identifies over the network that are present on the desktop.
Without the path the printer driver is not found by my Win 7 computer. Wednesday, June 2, Marked as answer by Linda Yan Tuesday, June 8, 2: Thursday, June 3, 8: Friday, June 18, The link to these instructions is: Monday, June 21, 4: Linda, I hope this is not too late to get a reply.

Need to Find HP Printer Drivers
While Microsoft has removed Windows XP from the Hardware Compatibility List, there are still several ways you can find out if your printer is compatible with any XP computers in your office, starting with the printer documentation itself. The manual that comes with the printer or its carton might specifically tell you if the device will work with Windows XP. Most printers ship with an installation disc containing software and drivers. If it does, you definitely know the device is compatible. Generic drivers are helpful when an application, the operating system or other environmental issues prevent a printer from working correctly with its specific published drivers. A generic driver can also save the day if your printer is so old that an XP driver was never developed for it.
