Error Message - 0x00000002 - Add Printer


Network printer shows offline after disconnecting from the host machine. Error message 0x00000002 while trying to add the printer. Can't connect to printer in windows 7. I have a shared hp printer on lpt1 of a computer (the host) running windows 7. I temporarily disconnected the printer.

While it was disconnected, someone tried to print from another computer (client 1). I re-connected the printer and it works without trouble from the host computer. It also works from a client (client 2) that did not previously have the printer installed.

However, client 1 showed it as 'offline'. I could find no way to make it 'online'. I removed the printer from client 1's devices and tried to re-add it. I cannot re-add the printer. All i see is "error message 0x00000002". The printer is shared and available - nothing changed and it works from other clients. What is going on? This is ridiculous and extremely frustrating.

Error Message - Windows Cant Add Printer

Error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine". Having upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 bit from vista home premium 64 bit, i expected to be able to plug my epson stylus d68 printer into my laptop and have it installed straight away. However when i tried to do this installation constantly failed. I therefore went to the manual add printer option within the devices and printers menu.

However i was met with this message error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine", after checking existing forums on the issue i attempted to restart it from the services option. However the option to restart was blanked out and when i simply tried to start i was then met with another error message: "windows could not start the spooler service on the on local computer, error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

Additionally when i click on properties for the spooler in the description it says failed to read description. Error code:1813. This is all very frustrating for someone who simply wants to add a printer to his laptop. Can someone please help? Because i am all out of ideas.

Add A Printer Error 0x0000052e

Windows 7 doesn't seem to like our environment at all. The latest problem is when i try to add a networked printer; after i enter the unc servershare printer name and choose next, i get this:

    Windows cannot connect to printer.
    Operation failed with error 0x0000052e.

The printer is hosted on a windows server 2003 r2 server, which has not shown this error to any windows xp or vista clients, only to windows 7 rc clients and for all printers. The printer driver is already installed locally, if that matters. I did not attempt to elevate (run as administrator) when i opened control panel->devices and printers, because i didn't see an option to do so. Anybody have an idea what's wrong with this?

Error - Windows Can't Open Add Printer

Error message "windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. " While trying to add printers in windows 7. My laptop has lost all the printers and windows & doesn't recognize them anymore. I can't print anything. I use my laptop on a docking station. I took it off to take to a trip and when i returned i plugged it back in (as i always do).

Right before the trip i upgraded to windows 7 and all my printers were working fine. When i got back and plugged it back in, windows doesn't recognize any of my printers. When i try to add the printers back an error message comes up saying "windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. " I have tried rebooting and turning off the printer, etc. Can anyone help me?

F2480 Printer Error Message

Purchased a new all in one f2480, tried to install, got error message.contacted hp tech support, they took command of computer, installed new driver/software from site. Printer ran that same day. Next day started computer got blue screen advising of error and suggestion to start in safe mode.contacted tech support again. Uninstalled driver/software. Started from beginning and could not get set up. After two days and about 5 1/2 hours on phone, canceled installation.

Took that printer back, got another, model f4480 with disc that reads for windows 7. Started installation and got same error message as with first printer. What next? Help site was unable to help with first printer, can only guess won't help with this next one. Old printer, model f4140 had no problem setting up, just plug in and go. Just needed to replace because of envelope printing problems. Any suggestions?

Error Message - Cannot Retrieve Application List - Lexmark Printer

When i installed my lexmark x4650 printer i received a message saying "required system software not installed", microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue. I went to microsoft to download and got a message that it was already installed on my computer. Now i can't get rid of the message telling me to get the software, (it pops up every time i turn on the computer) and i can't get the printer to scan to the computer.

I get a message on the printer that it  "cannot retrieve application list". The printer prints perfectly fine, but will not scan. I just installed the printer on a new computer and everything was working fine on the old one. The only thing different is this time i am wireless.

Add Printer Does Not Work

I recently tried to install a new printer on a laptop running windows 7 ultimate. After attempting this, i can no longer add a new printer nor print to my existing printers. If i try to add a new printer, a message appears that states: unable to install printer. The print processor does not exist. If i try to print to an existing printer, the computer claims that the printer does not exist. Is there any good way to "reset" the windows printing subsystem? 

I'm really at my wits end with this issue and do not want to be forced to reinstall windows to correct this issue. I have checked the windows spooler service and it is running and does not appear to be generating any errors in the event viewer. I have also come across some previous posts that stated you may be able to install a new printer with a generic driver first and then change it, but this does not work either. Any recommendations regarding how to correct this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Add A Shared Printer On A Network

I recently installed windows 7 64 bit and i'm trying to add an hp deskjet 970cse printer that's been shared on my corporate network. I went to hp's web site and looked for the appropriate windows 7 64-bit driver to download and found there isn't one, that it is supposed to be built into windows 7 and that windows 7 should find the driver automatically when i add the printer, which it doesn't seem to be able to do, at least for this shared printer. I moved the printer and physically connected it to my windows 7 system and w7 was able to install the correct driver.

I then put the printer back on the system on which it belongs and was still unable to connect to it through the network. I went through hp support to try to get them to send me the driver so i could point to it manually to get the printer installed that way but after much back and forth, they refused to do so.

The system on my corporate network on which the printer is physically connected and installed is a system running windows xp 32-bit with service pack 3. On my own w7 64-bit system, i go to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers and select "add a printer". I then select "add a network, wireless or bluetooth pinter". It searches and says "no printers were found" so i click "the printer that i want isn't listed". In the next dialog, i choose "select a shared printer by name", select the browse button, navigate to the system with the printer installed and select the printer. The correct printer share name is then displayed in the edit control and i click "next".

I get a message box with the caption "windows printer installation". The message says "connecting to hpdeskjet on nadpayne" on the first line and "looking for a driver" briefly on the second line before the message changes to "checking windows update. This might take a while. ". It continues for a little bit then displays a second message box with the caption "connect to printer" and the message "no driver found. Windows can't find a driver for hp deskjet 970c series on the network. To locate one manually, click ok. Otherwise, click cancel and consult your network administrator or the printer manufacturer's website. "

Is it possible to add this printer to my w7 64-bit system when it's shared out bya winxp 32-bit system? If yes, how?

Add Local Win 7 Printer To Mac

Before i upgraded to windows 7 i was able to go to the mac system preferences / print and fax and go to the add printer dialog and select the windows tab. Under that tab in the three pane window it would show workgroup/home-pc/printer where home-pc is my machine and printer was the name i chose for the canon mp780 that i shared via windows 7.

Once i upgraded to windows 7. I tried doing the same thing and nothing shows up on the windows tab in add printer dialog. I now have no idea how to add a local printer on my windows 7 box that i am sharing!?

Print Spooler Service / Unable To Add Printer

Installed clean version of windows 7 professional last night (new disk, did not upgrade from previous version) along with some application programs (outlook 2007, etc. ). Was able to print, etc. This morning, however, i have not printers installed. When i try to reinstall i keep getting the following:

"Windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. " I've restarted the system (several times). I've gone into services and restarted the spooler (several times). I gone into the "troubleshoot common problems" application several times. I continue to get the message regardless of what i do. What do i try next?

Can't Open Add Printer - The Local Print Spooler Service Is Not Running

"windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". I am running into the same problem on an emachines et1331g.initially, i wanted to print to an older dell - found the driver was not windows 7 compatible so installed my canon px100 successfully and used it for over a month with no problems.

Then i needed to move the computer to a different desk and install a driver for an epson nx415. Using "add printer", the message says "windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". Restarting the machine does not resolve the problem. In control panel/admin tools/services/print spooler, the spooler is set to start automatically and will sometimes show started, sometimes not.

If i start it and then go back to devices and printers, the epson will show that it is installed and ready. But if i then try to print something, it says "before you can perform printer, you must first install a printer". If i logout and return later, i will find the spooler no longer running.
I have tried the latest 64 bit drivers from epson with no success. I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Any ideas?

"add Printer" Missing "windows Update" Button

I need to add a driver in win 7 home premium 64 bit for an hp laserjet 5mp. I tried several times from work on a dial up and kept getting knocked off. So i brought it home to try it on dsl. But now after i select lpt1: and go to the next screen, i have no button to click on for "windows update" in order to get the larger list of drivers available from ms. I'm guessing something got corrupted when i was kicked offline so many times?

This procedure worked fine from our hp laptop with win 7 home premium 64 bit. . . And i didn't even have the printers hooked up! So is there a way to restore this "windows update" functionality to the "add printer" process on the desktop win 7 machine? This was a fresh install of windows with current windows updates on a new drive. I really hope i don't have to start over from scratch just to add a printer driver!

Ie Error Message

I'm currently running the latest versions of internet explorer. I've checked for any updates and i still can't seem to get rid of this error message. It will pop up as soon as i open internet explorer. The error message: a program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider settings for internet explorer.
 
Internet explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider, aim search (slirsreddirect. Search. Aol.com)
 
Internet explorer will now open search settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers.
 
I've done a search on the forums and the one topic that it came up with suggested installing the bing search provider and setting that to the default. I've added the bing search provider but unfortunately it will not let me remove aim search as the default provider. Can anyone help me get rid of aim search which i'm thinking is the problem that's causing that error.

No Disk Error Message

Both my wife and i are experiencing problems with "no disk" error messages on our windows 7 machines (windows 7 professional). Her error message displays on start up. Mine just pops up randomly. Here's the message she gets:

Userinit.exe - no disk
Winlogon.exe - there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddiskdr7

We can get rid of the message after clicking the "cancel" button about 11 times.

Here's the message i get:

Outlook.exe - no disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddiskdr7

So far, i can close the error message window by clicking the "continue" button. She's been getting the error for a couple of weeks now. I started getting the error yesterday. I've run system and malware scans on both machines, using malwarebytes and microsoft security essentials. Both machines seem to be clean. The messages don't seem to be causing any harm, but are annoying. Any ideas on how we can eliminate them?

To keep using windows, back up your files, and then install any edition of windows 7 ultimate. I did a online validation test in microsoft official website and i get this message: windows validation was successful.

Now you can take advantage of all the value genuine windows provides, including extras! Value of genuine windows because windows running on your pc is genuine, you are better protected from the risks of counterfeit software, such as viruses or other malware. With genuine windows, you can also count on microsoft and its partners to get support when you need it.
