Printing job in FIFO



  • 1. printer share name don't refresh
    when modify printer share name, the new share name is not modified as i unshare and aplly. Next i share with new printer share name and the refresh is automatic. It's normal ?
  • 2. very slow printing
    we have a big network in many cities . we have a sage application in the server . if any one in brnaches like to print using that application , it will take along time to do that ?
  • 3. possible spoolsv.exe problem
    Symptom: Only when printing a Word document, instead of getting the print dialog box, the title bar and application button on the status bar flash steadily. If I click twice on the application button on the staus bar, I will get the print dialog box and can then print. This happens in ALL word documents. I have done a repair - did not change anything. I uninstalled Word and reinstalled - no change. This was happening on an older HD that had been upgraded from ME to 2k. HP said that was the problem! We bought a new HD and put on a clean install of Win 2000 Pro and all new applications installed. We are using the same printers. Does this sound more like a spoolsv problem or something caused by the printer. HP Pavilion 900mHz with 526MB RAM HP PSC 500 printer on LPT1 This computer is on a peer-to-peer network and no other computers are experiencing this problems.
  • 4. unable to add a printer to Win2K server
    I unable to add any printers to win2k server. When I click on Add Printer, I get a message "...., the print subsystem is unavailable" I look at the printer spooler service and it is STOPPED. I restart it and the same thing happens again and the service STOPPS again. I have SP3 installed.
  • 5. HP 4050tn in 2000 AD environment
    I have installed an HP LJ4050 as a shared printer on my Windows 2000 server with AD. My XP and win2k workstations work fine when installing the drivers. But, I am having trouble adding additional drivers for my 98 and NT 4.0 clients. I have download the appropriate drivers for each OS, but have had no success. I didn't have any problems adding additional drivers to my HP LJ III, of course the drivers for this printer were already on my win2k server disk. Any ideas? Thanks, Rod

Printing job in FIFO

How it is possible to configure a print queue so all jobs 
are printed in their submited order ?

Thanks in advance.

1.Print job in queue gets port from next print job

Hi, this happens with printer connected to non-existent LPT1 port or TCP/IP 
1) Send first print job, when calling StartDoc set DOCINFO lpszOutput to 
NULL, it sits in front of queue, no problem.
2) Send second print job, same as first job, it sits behind first job in 
queue, no problem.
3) Send third print job, but this time when calling StartDoc set DOCINFO 
lpszOutput to a file path. The file is new and it is on either ProgramData or 
a network drive which gives permission to create. The second print job 
magically gets the 3rd print jobs file in it's port, as shown when viewing 
the print queue. Futhermore, third print job hangs waiting for EndDoc.

2.Print Job Respools in the middle of a Large Print job

I have a particular user that cannot print a full print 
job from a PDF document.  It is 220 pages, and is 15.1 MB 
when spooled.

About half way through printing (thereabouts) it will 
pause, then restart the print job from the beginning.

Any ideas?

3.Which print queue settings guarantee printing in FIFO order

I am trying to keep my sanity,  and yet still be able to print effectively.

My application must generate output to  remote printer in a specific 
sequence.  Thankfully, I can control which documents are printed and in what 
order, but have run afoul of the print spooler, which prints them out of 

In order of difficulty: is there a setting that guarantees a document 
printed at 1:00 will print after a document queued at 12:59:59, regardless of 
size or complexity?

Is there a tool that will print documents (RTF, Word, HTML, MHTML, etc) in 
this way?

Can you help?

Stuart extra empty print job for each print job

Hi all,

I have a remote site which has this very consistent problem:
they can print on their WASP lable printer fine (it runs off of one of
the PCs),
but when trying to print to their local printer (an HP 2600n, through
a TCP/IP port),
they keep getting an extra print jobs:
- which are empty
- first one can't be deleted
- first one stalls the PC's printer queue and the printer itself

Restarting the spooler clears the problematic first empty print job,
but my long suffering network users don't get access to windows they end up rebooting their PC instead.

The local printers can't be reached directly from the terminal server,
as this would require investing in a VPN endpoint. They are not
getting a windows 2008 server neither (to run a TS gateway).

Since the label printer works fine, I reckon the HP2600n should too.
HP support is coming up blank so far.

Anybody else out there came across this empty print job problem?
