    After some months, could you tell me how this has been working out for you? Does this method work flawlessly, or it requires occasional maintenance? I was looking for a way to print wirelessly from my iPad, but I want a reliable setup.

    Hi! Immediately apologize for my English, I write you from Russia:)
    I have a problem with printing from ipad (first generation) on the HP 1102w. There windows 7 itunes latest version, everything is connected through an access point zyxel p330. The printer is shared, Guest account wound up, firewalls disabled.
    Safari can not find the printer, but if try to print with other programs, they find my printer, but not through airprint, and through bonjour. However, despite the fact that finding through bonjour, trying to print but the printer does not print anything. I beg you to help sort out.

    I really hope that someone here can help me...

    I stumbled upon this post and after a few attempts, managed to find the necessary files to work with XP (32 bit).

    To my surprise it worked first time.. My printer (Dell 1320c) appeared on my iPad and it worked perfectly.

    But tonight I tried to print and my iPad says "No Printers Found".. I have hit the "Select Printer" option countless times and I get the same message every time.

    The thing is that NOTHING has changed on my PC or network.. But out of frustration, I did the following

    1. Removed the Airprint service and started again

    2. Did a system restore back to before I installed Airprint and started again.

    3. Removed my printer and drivers and started again.

    And in every case, I can't see the Airprinter on my iPad.. I can't for the life of me work out what I am doing wrong and I hope someone here can help..

    My fingers are crossed!

    I fixed it.. After a very late night (3:30am) I gave up.. I don't know why I stayed up so late, but I got so engrossed and frustrated that I just couldn't stop.. In the end I ran out of things to do. Believe me I tried everything and ended up learning an awful lot about "services"..

    Today I noticed that my "TVersity" was only intermittently showing in AirPlayer, so i started to think that this was a wider/bigger problem. But weirdly I COULD connect to my PC using VNC and SplashTop.

    Using a network tool called "scanny" I was able to see the Print and Bonjour ports were open and by stopping the relevant services, I could see the ports were appearing and disappearing..

    But it still didn't work and I started to think "router".. Instead of rebooting my router, I simply reserved a new IP address for the iPad and then renewed my lease.. And when I got the new address, suddenly everything started working again.. TVersity was permanently shown under AirPlayer and my printer immediately appeared under "Print".

    So I am pretty sure that this was a router problem.. Will keep an eye on this over the coming weeks to see if it re-occurs!

    >>> Let Windows Firewall allow AirPrint to communicate on the networks (Double >>> click on the airprint.exe)[/QUOTE]

    When doing this, I get an error message:
    Unable to remove "C:\DOCUME~1\Standard\LOCALS~1\Temp\/cupslite" No such file or directory
    XpdfPrint library version = 3.02.33

    What can I do about this? I am using WinXP-Pro 32Bit and have got an iPhone4 vers. 4.3.3

    I keep getting the error as seen in the attachment. I tried re adding everything but no luck

    EDIT: Deleting the airprint service from Services fixed the issue. It is working now :)

    Airprint.exe Update for IOS 5 / Itunes 10.5 / Windows 7


    Has anyone found a new workaround for this airprint.exe to work with iOS 5 and Windows 7?

    As soon as I upgraded my ipad 2, the printing workaround no longer works with iOS 5. I have held off updating my wife's iPhone as the workaround still works with iOS 4.

    Not sure if the developer abandoned the project. The last post on the below link was Nov 2010.


    I'm guessing the code needs to be updated to be iOS 5 ready.

    Hopefully someone will work there magic soon.

    Did a little more searching and found this program: Fingerprint


    Downloaded a 7 day trial version. They have it for both macs and PCs. I'm evaluating the PC version and it seems to work thru my networked Hp 1320 printer as long as my PC is on. I'll test it out over the next week before I decide whether it's worth the $10.

    I am getting the same error.

    I was able to get everything running about a year ago, but I was running Vista 32bit and obviously iOS4, I have recently upgraded to Win7 64bit (on the same PC).

    I did restart Bonjour and made sure multicast was enabled. Still no luck.

    get this failure running Airprint.exe

    Listening for connections on
    Listening for connections on [::1]:631...
    Unable to remove "C:\Users\Jim\AppData\Local\Temp\/cupslite/cupslite" - No such
    file or directory
    Canon MP830 Series Printer: DeviceCapabilities(DC_ENUMRESOLUTIONS) failed
    Canon Inkjet MP830 Series: DeviceCapabilities(DC_ENUMRESOLUTIONS) failed
    XpdfPrint library version = 3.02.33

    I installed the 7 day trial of FingerPrint, which works well.

    I'd rather get AirPrint running.

    any help would be appreciated.

    FingerPrint works great, but I am not to the point where it is worth the $10. I used it once after setting it up in the trial and it worked great. I rarely print so it was nice to have available when AirPrint + iOS 4 worked. I hope there are some devs out there that can put together a free alternative compatible with iOS 5.

    It's been awhile since I've revisited trying to find a solution. Has anyone made any progress with this topic?

    I ran the following to remove the service:
    C:\Users\Jim>sc.exe delete airprint
    [SC] DeleteService SUCCESS

    C:\Users\Jim>sc.exe create AirPrint binPath= "C:\Program Files (x86)\AirPrint\ai
    rprint.exe -R _ipp._tcp,_universal -s" depend= "Bonjour Service" start= auto
    [SC] CreateService SUCCESS

    C:\Users\Jim>sc.exe start airprint

    SERVICE_NAME: airprint
    WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
    SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
    CHECKPOINT : 0x0
    WAIT_HINT : 0x7d0
    PID : 10064
    FLAGS :

    after that I run the AirPrint.exe and get the same error as in the quotes.
