Cannot install the printer. The print processor does not exist.

Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit.  I am able to install HP LaserJet printers but no virtual printer.  I can not load the XPS from Windows printer or Print to OneNote.  I also tried to load more than one PDF printer and none of them work.  The error I keep gettig to "cannot install the printer.  The print processor does not exist. »

Any ideas would be appreciated.

My laptop has been reloaded from a picture, and I was not able to start the print spooler at all. I have studied the issue and cleaned files and registry entries and was able to print on real printers, but not virtual. That's when I asked the question.

Finished reimage the computer again, and once again, I could not start the print service. We discovered that the image that the laptop was built from was actually a VMWare virtual machine, so we started to look in that direction.   We had to delete the following entry in the registry and rebooting, how the print spooler began to work very well.

[Print HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\ThinPrint for VMWare Port Monitor]

You wanted to post this in case someone else ran into a similar problem.

This is what worked for me.

I copy the files from the print processor from another machine to work with the same architecture as the one who has the problem (x 86 or x 64).

Step 1: Stop the print spooler service.

Step 2: Copy all the files and folders on the system to work under C:\Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\x64.

Step 3: Make a backup of the system files listed in the C:\Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\x64 problem.

Step 4: Paste the files that you copy from the system of work in the case of the United Nations, the problem system.

Step 5: Start the print spooler service.

Try to connect or install your net printer and it should work now.

I hope this work for all of you.

If the load circuit does not have the laptop is running on a charged battery or the power cable, but won't charge the battery.  The fact that the machine failed to load two new and old battery suggests the charging circuit has failed.

  • I get a message saying "the specified service does not exist as an installed service."

    Hi, im having problems with windows vista where whenever I try to update my system (security, java, adobe) or I right click on the sound icon in the toolbar of my screen (and open) section, I get the message saying that the specified service does not exist as an installed service. SO, I searched online and which did not help. Oh and by the way, when I get the options after I have right click on the sound icon, I can't click on the mixer. IM using a dell inspiron 531 and it works on windows vista and is very slow, almost never answers (only restores the games that I have on it) and has an athlon processor. What should I do? Thank you, Shawn White. P.S. that's in the good topic?
