Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2008 10:37 PM (in response to kae)when you unistalled SP3 did it fix the issue? I am having the same issue for Windows XP SP3 under Parallels on Macbook Pro 10.5.4Power Mac G5,Macbook Pro,Macbook,iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2008 11:06 PM (in response to mpdajo)I have since installed Bonjour for windows v 1.0.5 and still has the same issue.
The list of printers exist when first start Bonjour Printer Wizard, however after I have selected the printer I get the error: "The Bonjour printer you have selected is no longer available. Please make sure the printer is powered-on and plugged-in".
It is both powered-on and plugged-in and accessible from the MacBook Pro and all other Macs on the LAN.
After the is dismissed the only item in the list is the Apple Talk access to a different printer on the network (the only device running AT)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 7, 2008 8:48 PM (in response to mpdajo)I am experiencing exactly the same problem with Bonjour for Windows 1.0.5 running under Windows XP with SP2 running under Parallels 3.0. The sole printer on the network (an HP LaserJet 1320n) appears on the list. The data for the printer appears when it is selected. One can even scroll through the list of printer drivers available, if one is fast with the mouse. Then the "no longer available" message appears. It is possible to quit Bonjour and do this repeatedly.20" Aluminum iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 26, 2008 3:08 PM (in response to kae)Same problem here. OS/X 10.5.5, Parallels 4.0, Windows XP and I can't get Bonjour to consistently work. After hours of tinkering I got it to print once last night. Then I shut down Windows (XP SP3) last night, and now it won't print anymore. Has anyone had any progress on getting this fixed?MBP 4GB, PM G5, iMac, macMini, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 27, 2008 9:06 AM (in response to kae)Are we all agreeing that SP3 broke Bonjour for Windows? Up until a month or more ago, I had all computers in the house wirelessly printing to an HP Deskjet 5400 series USB printer. Now, up-to-date Windows XP machines running Bonjour 1.0.x are failing to see any printers on the network. My network is an Airport Extreme participating in WDS with an Airport Express. All Mac laptops in the house print with no problems. I would love to hear of a solution to this problem, but I am beginning to believe Apple may need to identify the incompatibility issue in the Windows update that broke Bonjour and push an update out.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.5), VMWare Fusion for Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedDec 2, 2008 2:56 PM (in response to Blind Cowboy)Agreed. I have found the following: http://securitytracker.com/alerts/2008/Sep/1020844.html, which states that there was a vulnerability and iTunes 8 and Bonjour 1.0.5 were supposed to fix it.MacBook Pro 15" 2.3Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.5), VMWare Fusion Version 2.0.1 (128865)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 2, 2009 12:44 PM (in response to kae)I lost the ability to print wirelessly from my PC using Airport Extreme about a month ago. Bonjour sees the printer, but like Kae, printing fails. Uninstalling SP3 did NOT remedy the problem for me. Apple support was no help.Lenovo, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2009 9:22 AM (in response to kae)I have Windows XP - SP3 installed through Parallels 4.0.3810 and am having the same trouble. When I start up Bonjour it sees my printer right away. I select that printer which brings up the list of printers and almost immediately I get the message that the printer I had selected is no longer available. Any help on this would be awesome. Thanks.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 19, 2009 4:54 AM (in response to kae)Just an idea. Could it be that SP3 is overwriting files that bonjour uses? You could try uninstalling bonjour and then installing it again with the update after you've installed SP3.MacBook Pro 15.4" 2.4, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 1, 2009 3:34 PM (in response to kae)I have Bonjour installed on my ThinkPad running WinXP. It can't see my LAN-connected HP printer. I don't even see an option to add a Bonjour printer.
( how do you add a Bonjour printer??
Nor can any of my Macs see the shared documents folder on the PC. They could before I upgraded to SP3. Sharing for that folder is turned on, of course
I removed the Bonjour component and reinstalled it. No diference.
I downloaded the latest Bonjour installer from Apple and installed that.
Turned firewall off. No difference.
The Windows Component Manager shows that the Bonjour service is running. I stopped and restarted the service. No joy.
The Windows Event Viewer shows that the Bonjour service is logging informational error messages ID=1 from time to time.ThinkPad T42, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedMar 12, 2009 9:46 AM (in response to kae)I ran into the same issue and found that opening up port 5353 on my Firewall solved the issue.
Here is a link to an article that explains exactly how to manually open up ports on Windows XP
Hope this helps!Dell Latitude D620
Currently Being ModeratedApr 26, 2009 4:31 AM (in response to MightyBee)Thanks for that, I had the same problem opened up port 5353 and all works fine now.
