ACC-8023 • XP to Mountain Lion/Mavericks print sharing


Mac OS Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9) and future versions have become too advanced for the XP operating system.

In the past an XP computer hosting AccuRIP could "share" the print driver across the network to a Mac computer. With the release of Mavericks this ability ends.

The last Mac OS that can share printer drivers and understand XP workgroups is Lion (10.7).

As of April of 2014 Windows is fully and finally dropping all support for the XP operating system. Users are encouraged to upgrade their PC systems, transfer the AccuRIP license to a Mac or purchase additional licenses of AccuRIP for their new Mavericks computer.
