    How do you map a netware printer to LPT1? Used to be able to do this with NT and 98.
  • 2. Font size is different from user to user
    I have an in-house VB6 application that I built using Crystal Reports ActiveX control to print labels. The label report being printed is on a network share so that every user prints the same report. This also means that the font should not change. It is always "Times New Roman". However, I have two users who, when they print the labels from their machines, the font size is larger than expected and the text in the label is truncated. Others can print to the same printers with no problems. These two users are the only people who have graphic design-type applications installed, like Adobe PageMaker. Does anyone have any idea why the font size would be different? Is there anything I can check to find out why they are having this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • 5. Connections to Shared Printer on W2K Pro
    I have several users who print to a shared printer on a W2K Professional workstation, however, I have recently started receiving the following message: "Windows cannot connect to teh printer, No more connections can be ade to thsi remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept." I have never read of a limitations to connections to a shared resource and believe this to be caused from something else. Anybody have any ideas? TIA

I work as a I.S. Tech.  We has Windows 2000 Server as our 
OS for the PDC.  I am wondering if there is a way to have 
certain computers on property to automatically install 
printers when someone new logs onto the computer.  Of 
course all computers here are in Active Directory.

Not all driver files have ben tested by Microsoft.  You 
may find that the driver you are attempting to install 
works just fine.  If you install it and it still does not 
work properly, I would check the manufacturer's and/or 
Microsoft's web site for more information about obtaining 
the latest driver files for your printer.

Depends on the printer interface.

If it's USB you probably have to install the software BEFORE you connect 
the printer.

So, what are you trying to install?

3.Unable to install printer which was installed before

I had HP photosmart installed on my XP Pro machine for a long time - 
recently it was uninstalled (not sure human mistake or putter acts up) - 
anyhow now when I am trying to install the printer (using the updated driver 
and installation for XP from HP), it propmts fro RPC server not available -  
If I try to just do a simple Add hardware it prompts that this device is 
working properly and it is not even in device manager -  when try to do the

To add to this - lately on start up it has been starting RPCSS and would

5.Can't Install Printer after installing Windows XP SP2

I need help from whoever can help. I have been to many different forums, on 
all different companies to get help. So I am turning to you all in hopes you 
have experiences this problem or know how to fix it. 

First off I have Dell Dimension 8100. My hard drive crashed and I had to 
replace the whole thing. I purchased a retail full version of Windows XP SP2 
and installed it my new hard drive. Ever since then I can not install any 
printer on the computer.

Details of what I did and my problem.
-Hard Drive crashed, purchased and installed a new one
-Installed a full version Windows XP SP2 (new purchase, since before I only 
had an upgrade)
-Tried to install USB printer (tried multiple printers), when I plug in the 
printer it recongnizes the type of printer, then it shows copying the files 
to install the driver, then at the end it closes and says "there was a 
problem installing your printer, it may not work properly"
-The printer does not show up in the control panel under printers
-Downloaded the latest drivers for both printers to ensure I had the latest 
-Still same problem
-Uprgaded BIOS Version to XP2, the latest version
-Still same problem
-Did an Upgrade (repair) of Windows XP SP2 hoping that would solve it.

So any ideas?
