Vista refuses to add shared printer

A shared printer on a PC in Domain, normaly maped to all PCs in the department, but refuses to map in a vista imb t61 laptop. Checked several times but gives the same error.

Solution: Connect the shared printer as a network priner. In add printer, select the network printer option, and in next page select connect to this printer and type the file://sharedpcname/peinterShareName . Then locate the printer driver manually by Browse option.
