Document Hangs In Printer Queue From Remote Machine


I have a homegroup with 2 computers running windows 7 x64. On the primary i have an hp color laser 1600 connected via usb. I can share files fine. Printer show up fine. The network is working fine. I print a document from the secondary computer and it shows up in the printer queue on the primary computer and says its printing but its not printing. I can't pause, resume or cancel the job. If i then print a document from the primary computer it goes into the queue but it can't print because the first job (from the secondary machine) hasn't finished printing.

When i reboot the primary matching both jobs print before i log on to windows. The file is getting sent to the primary but won't print until i reboot. All sharing is turned on. I've checked all the settings listed in other posts and nothing helps. I can print from the primary machine with no problem as long as there isn't a job in the queue from the secondary machine.

Remote Desktop Hangs On Logoff

When trying to logoff from a remote desktop session to any host (vista, 2008 server, 2003 server, xp), the remote desktop window hangs - the rdp window stays open and the screen is stuck at the 'logging off' message or a blank black window is displayed. You have to end task the session in task manager to close the window.

Yes, my rdp session does log me out. We've seen this behavior on both windows 7 and vista (both are x64). The av version we're using is sep mr5. We have local admin rights on our workstations. Windows firewall is enabled. Ll windows updates are up-to-date. Disabling and re-enabling 3rd party startup items didn't solve it. Also, these are on lenovo thinkpad notebooks.

Printer Queue

Windows 7 printer is brother mfc-490cw. Has been working fine since i got the computer (approximately 1 month ago) and downloaded the win7 drivers from brother. Several days ago it stopped printing. When i open the printer it shows many files waiting to be printed (none of which i initiated), sometimes upward of 2000 to 3000. The files are in pairs "shockwave flash object" (. Spl)†and . Shd files (. Spl). File sizes are always the same 1kb and 3kb respectively)i have uninstalled†and reinstalled the printer software.

I have stopped the printer spooler, deleted the files in windows/sys32/spool/printers and restarted the spooler. I have checked the printer subsystem (http://social. Technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7itprohardware/thread/ff17456a-3339-4dd8-a0b3-607d1a02ea8b†) and all appears well. But it still will not print and the aforementioned files start reappearing almost immediately and every few minutes it adds a few more. After 5-6 hours there are several thousand of them. Any ideas?

Win 7 Won't Print To Usb Printer On Xp Machine

I have a small home network here with my xp (home edtn)†machine sharing web & print and have a wd external usb drive for shared file storage for the family. Ll seems to work ok - all other machines in the house connected via ethernet. Recently two of my daughters pensioned off their old xp desktops†in favour of†laptops - 1† is a vista home premium build, and the other is a win7 pro build. Ll shared services work for all machines except, the hp colour printer which is connected to my xp home box via usb.

I have another hp 1200 black laser on my machine connected via parallel and all users can see and print to it. When i try to do an install on either of the girls laptops (vista & win7) it seems to do the install but nothing prints to the usb hp colour. It has me mystified. Have tried suggestions on some forums about doing a 'local' printer install on the remote machines and then resetting the ports later etc etc but nothing will get ink on paper from these two laptops to the hp 970cxi colour. It works fine for the xp machines in the house.

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

Cannot Print To Remote Printer

I had vista home premium on my laptop from which i could print on an old lexmark z11 attached to another laptop running xp. Recently i upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot print this way. Although the 7 machine can see the printer, it says it is 'ready' and i see stuff in its print queue on my machine, after a while these items disappear without appearing on the xp machine's queue. The printer shows no activity whatsoever. I have removed the printer from my machine and reinstalled it. Still no joy. The xp machine has extra drivers loaded for "2000 and xp".

Printer Terminal With Remote Logon Privilege

We recently upgraded all of our computers and are now running windows 7 (64 bit). I have a "dummy" workstation that is nothing more than a central hub for a few printers and a scanner that require a pc to work. I have gotten my scanjet 8300 setup and working except for one issue. In order to scan, you must be logged into the workstation which is fine, i've just set the machine up to automatically login upon boot. However i don't have a monitor or keyboard / mouse hooked up to this machine in order to save space and i just remote desktop into the box for any admin.

I have tested this over and over and have discovered that when i remote login to the scanner, my front panel scan buttons no longer work. I close out of the remote window (keeping programs running) and the same thing. No front scanner buttons. I hook up a monitor and such and login locally and the front buttons work. I restart the pc and let it auto login and the front buttons work.

It's only when i remote log when it no longer allows the buttons to work. I'm guessing there is some sort of security policy that doesn't allow usb connected devices to control the pc under remote log situations. I've looked over and over for this policy but can't for the life of me figure it out. Does anyone have any ideas where i can go to allow this device to control the pc under remote? Or upgrade my remote privileges?

I did setup the home group, passwords match, and print sharing turn on. Any idea how i can get this printer working via the homegroup network?

Printing To Remote Printer Connected Via Usb To Xp Computer

I am using my c5580 as a remote network printer. The printer†is hooked up via a usb cable to my main (xp) server computer. The rest of my (xp & vista) computers are accessing and printing through my wireless network connection with no problem. It is my newly purchased pc with "windows 7" on it. 64 bit that can't print. I setup a new printer by adding a "network printer". It found the hp printer through network search and the drivers loaded ok. When i go to print i get the following message "windows can not print due to the current printer setup, try one or more of the following".

* Check the printer by test page from windows
* Make sure the printer is turned on and on-line - done
* Reinstall the print driver -done

I have loaded all windows updates and went to hp to get the latest printer drivers. Still no luck.

Printer Sharing - 64-bit Win 7 And 32-bit Xp In Remote Desktop Session

Printer sharing - 64 bit windows 7 and 32 bit windows xp in a remote desktop session. Windows 7 machine with a local ricoh / aficio 1045 b & w multifunction printer attached. Works fine, uses 64 bit printer driver. This computer connects to a windows xp machine (32 bit) using remote desktop session (terminal services).

On the xp machine, i installed the 64 bit printer driver via printers and faxes -> server properties - drivers - add driver. I can see the driver there, successfully installed (have rebooted, etc). Despite this, the printer will still not show up when rd session is run. In event viewer, i can see there's an issue with it finding the correct driver.

I've used the terminal server printer redirection tool in the past to solve these problems (tspdrw.exe) which works great. The correct 64 bit driver is not listed as a choice when scrolling through options to reassign the driver. Hopefully that is clear, not sure what i am missing.

Document Files Erased

I can't believe that i was so stupid to erase some of my document files, and then i like to have a "clean" recycle bin - so i think i erased and recycled almost half of the document files which hold all my research, document files and other very important and irreplaceable data. I've heard that data isn't really "gone" even if it's been erased. Is this true? And can someone please give me some direction as to how to resurrect my data?

Word Document Save Issue

We recently purchased a windows 7 system and transferred all of our word 2003 documents. I am able to access and edit all of them when they are saved on the desktop or in my documents folder. But, when i open the files that are saved on my "c" drive, the window name has "read-only" in it and i can't go in to edit them. I know this is probably a security setting somewhere (either in the word program or on my "c" drive). But i can't find it.

Problem Changing Document User Name

I recently purchased a used lap top with windows 7 home premium on it. I wanted to change all the settings so that there in my name. I was able to make myself the administrator and was also able to put the pc in my name. Now i'm just trying to change the name of my documents folder. At the moment when i open a program is says c:/user/michael. And my name isn't michael. I went and right-clicked on my documents and clicked properties. I then had a window pop up where i was able to change the name, but when i tried to press ok a window popped up that says, "error 0x80070057: the parameter is incorrect. " So i am unable to fix the name. I tried changing my permissions but its still not working!

To make my life even worse i tried to contact someone at microsoft and in order for this to be free for me i have to enter my identification code. I entered it and the website won't take it.

Error - Problem Prevented The Document From Being Scanned

A problem prevented the document from being scanned. Windows 7 - hp g4050 scanner. I have an hp g4050 that worked fine with vista.

Only Recent Documents Are Showing Up In Document Libraries

Only recent documents are showing up in the document libraries and in searches. How do i change it back to the way it was? I've been using windows 7 for a few months now. Typically, when i select the documents library, everything in my "my documents" folder is displayed. Last week, only recently viewed documents started showing up there. If i use the drop down option and click on the "my documents" folder, i can again see all of my documents. However, all search utilities i've tried will only show results for documents i've viewed recently. Is there a setting i can adjust to fix this? I have tried removing and re-adding my "my documents" folder to the document library list, but that did not correct the problem. Thanks!

Restoring To Previous Save Point For Wordpad Document
