Q: printer configuration error message

I istalled a new printer/copier/scanner recently and all seems to have gone smoothly. But now whenever I boot the system, load a cd, launch my dsl connection, etc, I get the message "please wait while Windows configures the printer" and/or ""searching for installed components" or something similar. Can anybody help? Thanks!

Hello i Have the above problem while I try to share a printer on a domain network.
My windows firewall (localy) is also damage, is that the problem that I have to solve first?

Windows 8  - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties  [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved.  There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.   [OK]

A:Windows 8 - cannot share a printer error message appears "[Window Title] Printer Properties [Main Instruction] Printer settings could not be saved. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. [OK]

You may need to reinstall the printer. Remove the printer driver from Control Panel\Programs and Features, then add the printer from Devices and Printers.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

This a.m. I was greeted by this System Configuration Utility message popup:

You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

The System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the Utility to run every time Windows starts.

Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system Configuration Utility.

Yesterday I used the system configuration utility to untick a program in the Startup menu. Is that why I am getting this message now?

If I follow the directions and select the Normal Startup option, will all the services that I have painstakingly turned off over time start running on startup again? Or will it just load the one application it changed?

Could I restore the registry from a few days ago instead? And, if I do that, will the tracking cookies I finally got rid of by setting them to be deleted at start-up reappear?

Another question I have is, what is the utility used for, if not to make changes? Is it just to look at? What good is it then?

I get an error message when I open Itunes. It says "Itunes has detected a problem with audio/video configuration..." and that the audio video may not play correctly.

I have uploaded some cd's to Itunes and I have noticed the sound has skips in it.

Also, my daughter wanted to open some pictures from a disc but the disc wouldn't work. I took the disc to work and opened the pictures fine.

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 running XP. I do not have any other problems with the machine.

Are there diagnostic programs that I might try to correct this problem, or do I need to replace the cd drive?

Hi There!

I'm using a Lexmark x1165 printer connected directly to a Dell Dimension 4600 running XP Home SP2.

All of a sudden I get this message: Printer Cannot Communicate With The Computer.

I've checked the print spooler, the usb cable, the device manager, powered up and down the printer, and all the other things that are normally suggested, but I just can't get this thing to work. It shows up in Printers & Faxes but won't print a test page.

Any thoughts?

A:Lexmark Printer, Error Message: "Printer Cannot Communicate With The Computer"

When checking device manager,usb controllers,you probably should see some kind of entry for usb print support or some such wording,also you might wnat to check the entries that you find in the usb section,just to make sure there are no yellow exclam marks and that all appears to be ,according to the system,functioning properly.
Sometimes,just unplugging the printer from the wall socket does magic.If you have another usb socket that you could use ,try that.

As perhaps a last resort,uninstall/re-install the printer and see if XP will plug/play it back into the world of the living.Do you have any other usb devices that appear to be functioning properly?
In addition to this,you might want to check the lexmark site for a more current driver.

I’ve had several HP printers and the fix to that sort of problem is usually to just uninstall and reinstall the software. If it is hooked up parallel as your error message would indicate it is very east. Put your HP CD in the drive and choose uninstall. Reboot and then reinstall the software from the CD.

It is a little more complicated for USB. Best there is to uninstall the software and remove the printer from device manager. On reboot it should re detect the printer and allow you to install the driver with the resulting dialogue box.

Hello -

I upgraded our Windows XP machines to Win7 Professional 64 bit SP1 machine.

On one machine, I cannot add printers - local or network.

The computer has a printer attached to it, via USB 2.0. Epson WorkForce Professional 645. I have installed the drivers, uninstalled them, downloaded drivers, all to no avail.
When I plug the printer in to the USB port (first time), Win says device was successfully installed. Yet when I go to print, it (printer) does not show up. I go to control panel, and "add a device/add printer" When I click on "Add Printer" I get the message:

"Windows can't open Add Printer. Access is Denied."

Since it is a local, attached printer, it has nothing to do with spooling.

I am logged in as an administrator.

I have not had this on any other computer ((total of 5 computers - all running Win7 Professional 64 bit SP1) all computers have a local attached printer connected via USB, as well as share a common network printer)


A:Error Message when trying to add Printer

Welcome to Seven Forums sachin528. Sounds like perhaps a permissions issue. Have a look at the suggestion on this thread:

Look at reply by nothingsknower 1st

First step, you have to be able to open up the print server properties. There's probably several ways to get there, but I opened an elevated command prompt (non-elevated didn't work) and ran


You should also be able to run this from the built-in administrators account. Note, there is a substantial difference between running this command as a built in administrator or a user-made administrator... UAC causes your user-made administrators to act as a standard user unless you specifically use their elevated token (like by creating an elevated command prompt)

Second, I went to the Security tab and added "Computername\Users" (substituting "Computername" with the name of my computer). Computername\Users were given the permission to "Print" and "View Server". No other permissions were granted to Computername\Users. Computername\Administrators had full permissions.

Pressed OK, logged out and back in. Printers were then visible again, and the Add Printer Wizard was again accessable.

The exact steps may not work for everyone, but it does appear the permissions here in the Print Server Properties is at the root at least one of the causes of the problem.

I'm at our "cabin" and using our old 98. Whenever I print anything a Spool 32 error message comes up saying "You have made an illegal action, etc, etc." I've been ignoring it for a long time and have never had any trouble printing, but it annoys me and make me wonder what I have done that is illegal. I went into "Find" and found Spool 32.exe. and went into its properties. Choosing the General tab, it consisted of "Attributes" listing, with boxes, Read Only, Archive, Hidden, and System. The "system" was grayed out. The "Archive" was checked. The "Read Only" and "Hidden" boxes were blank. Anything wrong with that? Choosing the Version tab, I found the file version to be 4.10.1998. If there isn't anything wrong with that, where else can I go to find what is "illegal"? Maybe I need an update or something. Any help will be appreciated. lilart

1) Newdot~2 is spyware. Get a copy of Spybot and scan your system.

2) Don't use the install cd that came with the printer. Go to HP's website and grab the latest copy of the drivers.

*Note* The driver file is approximately 50MB so if you are not on broadband either order the Cd or be prepared for a long wait =:0

I am trying to install a printer I got with a hp computer.

It was working fine for the past 3 years until a few weeks ago I ran a system recovery (I had some nasty viruses on there I couldn't clean or delete). Ever since then the computer has the "Add New Hardware" icon in my system tray and I have not been able to make it work.

The Add New Hardware wizard runs fine but when it starts copying files it gives me the following message:

Setup cannot copy the file hpzstw05.exe.

Please ensure that the file path is correct and the file is not corrupt.Click to expand...

Just replace "hpzstw05.exe" with about 5 other types of files just like it ( by this I mean the computer cannot copy a number of files). I've used Windows Explorer to try to find the files in where they should be but I didn't find any of them.

I've heard a number of possibilities why. My uncle says my plug-and-play (or whatever you call it) isn't there anymore. I've also heard that it might be because I have damaged RAM. I'm not sure why though. My uncle says that when I used system recovery it erased some of my plugin files. He said I should have saved them to a disk.

Let's see, what else... I've tried continuing the Add New Hardware wizard without copying any of the files it needs but it didn't work... I've tried printing a test page... No, I don't have a CD for installin... Read more

I just purchased a new Epson CX9400F. I began to set up the printer on my Compaq thats running WinXP as specified and as soon as the software began loading I received a apdproxy.exe error message saying that the file mr310ifc.dll file was not found.I am attempting to network this new printer for my home but when I go to use it in my network both of the wireless computer say it cannot be accessed a file is missing. I assume it's the same file that is the only error I am getting. I am only mildly computer savy and have no idea how to fix it. Any suggestions?

Using home-built system running Windows XP, Service Pack 2, 512 RAM. Printer is HP PSC 1210v.

This printer worked fine until recently when it simply quit printing. I have opened it in Control Panel and gave it a print command. The print job appears in the queue and disappears within one- or two seconds; but, no printing takes place nor error messages.

I have checked its port and found it set for LPT1, which is incorrect. I reset its port to USB001 with no change in result. I also tried a different driver which HP says is universal and works with all HP DeskJets, the driver for the HP DeskJet 990c.

Still, no change.

A:Receiving an Error message ‘Printer is turned off’

Has this ever worked? If not you may need to install the printer driver on your computer, even though it's a network printer.

You can also try removing the adding the network printer again, see if that helps.

Is it your printer? If so go through the setup again, using a USB cable and the install CD.

Hi all,
I've been having ongoing issues with my Dell All-in-One Printer 944 and wanted to completely uninstall it with its driver and reload. First I deleted the printer, then when I go to try to uninstall the driver and its package, I get the following error message:

Failed to remove driver Dell Photo AIO Printer 944. The specified printer driver is currently in use.
Failed to remove package dlcdprc.inf. Driver package is in use.

Argh! It's driving me crazy b/c when I reboot the computer it says that the driver needs to be reinstalled. But yet when I try to uninstall it it says it's in use. I'm so confused and frustrated! Anyone out there have any advice for me?

First I deleted the printerClick to expand...

I don't know if that makes a difference, but you might want to try adding it back before uninstalling.

This is Dell's latest driver for the 944:

Read the installation instructions. When you run the file R147270.exe,
the first screen should have an 'Uninstall' button. Try that.
The installation instructions weren't complete. After you unzip the files(note where you unzip them to. You can change the default location, if you like), go to that folder and doubleclick, 'setup.exe'.

If that works, before you reinstall, "Did You Upgrade from XP"? If so, you must also remove the XP driver.

Printer is a Canon Pixma MP130 and I keep on getting this message:

Cannot communicate with the printer.
Turn Enable bi-directional support on in the printer's Properties dialog box.

I can't find the place to do it. Is it because I'm running Windows 7 instead of Vista?

A:printer bidirectional support error message

I don't have a functioning printer on my system, so I'm doing this from memory.

The purpose of bi-directional communication is so that the printer can send messages to the computer. If you keep an eye on your printer you don't need it.

This can be caused by drivers or by a problem with the cable. Did the printer used to work properly - and now it's giving the error message? If so, test the cable (by trying another).

FYI - 6' USB printer cables run about $30 (US) at electronics stores, about $15 (US) at discount stores, and a couple of dollars online.

Is the printer certified as Windows 7 compatible? Did you download Windows 7 drivers from the Canon website to install? Here's the link:

Hey everyone, let me get the basics out of the way:
The printer is a Kodak ESP 5200 series
Both computers are Custom Rigs less than a year old
Printer is connected to PC01 Win7 Ultimate 32bit via USB
PC01 Specs:
MoBo: MSi MS-7592
Processor: Pentium Dual Core E5700 @3.00GHz
RAM 4.00 GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x86

PC02 (specs are listed to the left) is a Win7 Ultimate x64 and is trying to connect to the printer.
Firewall on both PC's are off, and both PC's use identical log on creds and are in an identical workgroup.

I go through the usual routine of adding a network printer, PC02 sees the printer as I type in the printers location \\PC01\Kodak ESP 5200
It looks for drivers, then looks through Windows Update for drivers, then I get "Cannot Connect to Printer" with the above error code.

I can RDP into either PC from either PC so I know the creds are correct.... what am I missing here? its not this hard to add a printer at work with a beat up Server 2003 printer server!!! There's gotta be something stupid I am forgetting... Any help is appreciated! thank you!

I am trying to help an elderly neighbour who is having problems.

He bought a Kodak C315 printer in September last year and used it without a problem for 5 months but then it stopped working giving no error message.

I deleted the printer, ran the kodak clear software and then reinstalled it which appeared to be a complete success. Windows said everything installed OK including drivers and it's ready with a green tick. Windows also shows it as a correctly installed printer but if you ask for printer properties it says printer driver not installed and we can't print or scan anything.

If you click on update device driver and choose the Kodak driver directory the printer model is listed but then on attempting to install the driver windows says it encountered a problem, "No driver selected for the device information set or element"? Tried everything including the latest software with drivers from the kodak website which windows and the kodak software say install correctly and everything working OK. But it will not print or scan and windows just keeps saying drivers not installed when asking for printer properties despite both the Kodak software and Windows saying the printer was installed successfully and is ready.

He is running Windows 7 ultimate 32bit.

There are no other problems on his PC apart from the printer.

Installing a USB printer can sometimes be bit tricky second time round if you don't first uninstall it's driver, turn off the printer & disconnect it's usb cable from the PC so you are then at the correct stage to re-install just as if you were installing it for the first time as per Kodak's installation instructions. I do know many people have slipped up there when trying to re-install a USB device. They didn't start out with a "clean sheet" and with the device turned off and disconnected.

I don't know what else to suggest if you already did everything properly, other than ditching the Kodak and buying a Canon (the only printer brand that I would have in my office den).

Try a dedicated printserver like the Netgear PS110 which takes up to 2 printers (parallel cables). The printserver itself connects to your hub/switch/router, as is your laptop and other PCs.
This way, the printer will always be available as soon as you reconnect your laptop, due to the driver that is installed on the laptop (and other PCs) for this printserver.

We've got upwards of 400 workstations running Windows XP SP2. They also have the Novell Client 4.91 SP4 and network printers are managed through NDPS. Several months ago 20 new printers (IBM Infoprint 1532) were deployed across our LAN. Today I was told that the following changes need to be made by February: 1) In the printer driver properties, Enable the Duplexer 2) Under printing preferences, set Duplexing as the default. I was told that we techs need to physically touch each workstation to implement these changes. I've got a few ideas kicking around but I'd like to hear suggestions on the best way to automate this process to the greatest extent possible or at least be as efficient as possible.

The tray is pushed all the way in and actually I never even use it. Ever! So I'm not sure why it randomly pops up? In the past, I would reset the printer by unplugging the power and letting it set for a couple of hours. Then it would work...until now. I have had this problem for over a week and have tried everything I can think of! I have...

2. Cleaned it out with compressed air (made for printers)
3. Unplugged the power and let it sit for over 24 hours
4. Checked to see if anything is stuck inside or missing. It runs through it's cycles fine, although it's a little noisier than it usually is, not much just a little. (But it might just be louder because my face is shoved inside the printer to see what's wrong )
5. Tried to reset it using a sequence code to get to the "System Configuration Menu" I cleared out the Hardware failure status

However, when I select the double-sided print option I get a print error message after re-inserting the odd number pages to print the other side of the paper and then click 'continue'.

Could I resolve this by connecting the printer both direct to the desktop using USB AND leaving it connected via the wireless TP Link print server? This would enable me to print double-sided from my desktop (as I did before when the printer was only connected via the USB desktop port).

Does anybody knows how to do this on this system (Micros 9700 POS ver. 2.8.56). Printer model are Epson TM-220B with Ethernet IV Connect-it modules.

Hi Guys

i just made some changes to msconfig and made so that a few programs dont start automatically on startup, to speed up my computer a bit, but now when i start my computer it comes up with a message saying:

"you have used the system configuration utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

the system configuration utility is currently in diagnostic or selective startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts.

Choose the normal Startup mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system configuration utility.

[]don't show this message or launch the system configuration utility when windows start:"

What do i do? because i don't want to revert back to my old settings, because it'll slow my computer down again, but then i don't know if i want my computer to be running in a funny mode. does anyone know what this means or what i should do?

Thanks heaps!

I've reset my Asus laptop and now every time I turn it on it comes up with:
"A configuration change was requested to clear this computer's TPM (Trusted Platform Module)
WARNING: Clearing erases information stored on the TPM. You will lose all created keys and access to data encrypted by these keys.
Press F12 or Volume Up to clear the TPM Press ESC or Volume Down to reject the change request and continue"

I don't know much about this so I'm too scared to press F12, if I do will it cause problems? Any help would be appreciated, many thanks.

I downloaded an upgrade of the Adobe Acrobat, but everytime I go into it a message comes up "You cannot currently view Adobe PDF files from within your web browser due to a configuration problem. Would you like Acrobat to fix the configuration?" I click yes and then I can view them. What is that all about? Everytime the message comes up and I would think if it was fixed the first time, it wouldn't have to be fixed again.

I am having a problem with adding a network printer to WIN2K computers on a Novell network. The computer sees the printer just fine but it gives the message "Could Not Communicate with Printer" when trying to add it. It is only one printer that is giving problems and other operating systems (XP for example) do not have this problem. I can add the printer by using the IP address of the printer, but this is more of a patch than an actually fix. The computers with the problem are all Compaq Evo P4s running WIN2K. The printer is an HP5Si.
Any ideas what the problem might be?

A:Could not communicate with printer message when adding printer

Welcome to TSG!!

Since you can set the printer up using the ip address, it sounds like the name is not resolved.

What happens when you ping the printer name?

I recently set up a HP Officejet J6450 All-in-one printer with built-in wireless 802.11 b/g. I was under the same impression like the person who posted similar message to another forum. I already know how to share a printer wirelessly via XP or Vista but having to use another PC as a print server. I thought the new all-in-one can break away from that with its built-in wireless. Any idea how I can make it happen?

Thankyou! Thankyou! Perrylea

If you are reading this, your solution helped me reinstall my printer. I was getting the print spooler app error message in Vista, as you were, and this is what I did upon following the advice in your blog. You definately helped me with a frustrating problem, and now I would like to help others with the same problem.

1. I went to Device Manager and clicked on View -> Show Hidden
Devices. Selected System Devices. And Uninstalled both the UMBus
Enumerator as well as the UMBus Root Bus Enumerator.

2. Rebooted.

3. Downloaded the drivers for my printer (Dell A960)

4. Installed the drivers for my printer from the download.

5. Printer worked.

This is this readers digest condensed version of Perrylea's solution.

My trusty old Canon printer S400 finally has decided to act up and quit on me after several years. I am getting an Error 5700 when I attempt to print to it. I can not locate what this error means.

If someone knows, I'd appreciate it.

A:Canon printer error 5700 on S400 printer

I don`t know what the error means, but have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the printer?

Check the cables for damage and connection.

If this doesn`t work then maybe a new printer is in order.

Regards Howard
