If you receive this error, I advise you to access the Services menu within Windows. Go to Start > Run > services.msc and locate the Print Spooler. Right click it and then go back to the printer menu. Right click the printer, then choose Default. Right click it again, go to Properties > Sharing. If I am right, the sharing should be enabled for the printer you currently use.
