I read your mail, but I don't see anything that could cause
your problem.

Please re-post with a few more details.

Tell us about your printer type(s), the driver(s) you use on
the Win clients, which Samba version you was using previously,
what the settings of your smb.conf are (please strip comments),
which CUPS version you use, which OS version your Samba is
installed on, etc.
