    I am having trouble printing from Windows (Bootcamp) to a printer connected USB to an Airport Express. Mac OS works fine - sets up the printer and prints simply. Windows isn't finding it.

    I searched the forums, and followed the advice of connecting the printer directly and getting the drivers. This worked fine - and I could then print from Win 7 (64 bit)... But still no Airport joy.

    Anyone know if I can check whether Bonjour was installed? Is it automatic when doing bootcamp? I've been trying to get it from the apple site, but the link is down:

    Installing AirPort Utility or iTunes on the Windows side should include Bonjour. After installing either, try to add the printer again.

    Thanks. I installed the Bonjour Printer utility for Windows which did the trick. I thought that I had already installed bonjour, so was hesitant to install it again - but I guess I didn't have it..
