SO CASA D’ALGER have been blessed with a couple of shiny new Windows 8 tablets. (Due to having to replace a bricked iPhone, but nevermind.) And now we have an issue. An opportunity.

(That’s what the motivators call a problem when they want to psych you into being “positive” and shit.)

Seems that the tablets can see the printer. It’s a USB-connected HP LaserJet, served from a Windows XP laptop. Windows 8 drivers are installed — I think. The tablets can find the printer on the network. Then a command to connect is met with “Operation failed with error 0x00000490.” The process can proceed no further.

A Bing search on the error code yields the usual ten billion returns of marginally relevant mentions of the error code, but no solution.

Any clueage to be had?
