This can happen if:
- The printer's shared name contains a space or special character (see below).
- The name of the computer sharing the printer contains a space or special character.
- The Windows user's name or user's password contains a space or special character.
What's a "special character?" It's a typed character other than A-Z, 0-9, !, $, *, (, ), _, +, -, ' . .
The following are not special characters and are OK to use in the printer name, Windows computer name, Windows user name, and Windows user password:
As a workaround, remove all spaces or special characters from the computer's name, printer's name, Windows user's name, and password, then add the printer again in Mac OS X. You can consult the Help documentation built into Windows to learn how to change any of these names or a password.
Another workaround you can try is to manually add the shared printer. See this document's "How to manually add a Windows shared printer" section.
This document will be updated as more information becomes available.
