you probably need to log on as an administrator before you run the wizard.

I installed a new wired USB printer on my PC the other day. Laptop couldn't see it at first. I forgot the Printer Properties/Sharing needed to be enabled as well as Windows Sharing.

Then it would discover it but not connect from laptop when Adding Network Printer.

After rebooting PC twice and laptop twice, it worked (from laptop).

Not quite sure if your setup is similar.

I was starting to get wound up and preparing for a Google session.
