Error code Win32 returned by the print processor: 2147500037. Unspecified error

I see that this error code has been resolved.   I have a few questions on this topic tho.  Loop here, is where the fun begins.  If i see this exact problem in my hosted cloud envorioment.  The printers are installed locally and are drawn on the network when the user logs in the hosted environment. The user connecting to a full desktop, which is a Windows 2008 R2 server server.  They only receive this problem when printing via the cloud. that uses the same printer drivers installed on the local PC.  On-site printing has the success rate of 100%.

Here are the mistakes I see:

Https://, belonged to craig_REM, document failed to print on printer HP LaserJet P2050 Series PCL6 (from CRAIG) in session 18. Try printing the document again, or restart the print spooler.

Data type: NT EMF 1,008. Spool file size in bytes: 589824. Number of bytes printed: 540384. Total number of pages in the document: 2. number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \\VS-XA35. Error code Win32 returned by the print processor: 2147500037. Unspecified error

Where I am confused, is that I have no driver installed on the server.  they are all drawn in front of the user login local machine solange.  With printing works fine locally.  Uninstalling the drivers will make them any good?  or where should I be looking next?

  • Impossible to install Brother printer (even with the latest drivers for windows 7). I suspect it's other print network drivers. During installation, the Brother software reports "the operation cannot be completed (error 0 x 00000706).» The print processor

    I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7
    When I try to add the printer manually, I can't select all ports.

    Plug the printer causes Windows to try to install a driver, but it fails.

    I suspect it was due to my University Pharos printing system. (It worked when I updated from Vista). After that I installed Win7 and started having all these problems, I was unable to uninstall due to errors of RPC ports. So I deleted manually and deleted all the registry entries.

    Installation of a Brother printer still does not work.

    Is anyway to reset all the settings of the printer? Wipe the slate clean? To restore all network ports?
    Thank you!

    Edit: I read other entries... My Printer Spooler kept crashing before and I had to restart via services.msc
    Also ran sfc/scannow without error
    Edit: I have since deleted all other printers listed in the management of printing, restarted, but still there is no listed ports.

    OK, I found the solution. It turned out that all my print processors and ports have been replaced by the Pharos system (used by my University to charge for printing) DLLS. After the upgrade from Vista to Windows 7, it did not work.

    They have become like this:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Print Processors\winprint]
    «Pilot '=' "PSS08B07."» DLL.
    «C:\\Windows\\system32\\spool\\PRTPROCS\\W32X86\\PSS08B07 "=" PSDriverPath "."» DLL.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\USB Monitor]
    «Pilot '=' "C:\\Windows\\system32\\PSS08B05."» DLL.
    «C:\\Windows\\system32\\PSS08B05 "=" PSDriverPath "."» DLL.



    Manually, I changed ALL the print processors, drivers and ports in CurrentControlSet, CurrentControlSet1, CurrentControlSet2 to their original values and deleted the Pharos irritating ones.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Print Processors\winprint]


    restarted and it worked!
    Too bad, the troubleshooting of Microsoft tool could not detect it.

  • LaserJet P3010: Cannot install the printer. The print processor does not exist

    I have a LaserJet P3010 Series PCL 6. It gives me the following error when I try and add it to our print server: "unable to install the printer. The print processor does not exist. "Regardless of what kind of IP config I use, the test page I always manually print has for everything, even with the manual entry of IP. It is brand new, fresh out of the box, and I installed a few of them before. There seems to be 2 sets of link one of them lights flashes green (even without a CAT cable) and the other shows not all colors. (I think that's the main, judging by its location). I know that the cable is good, but also over all cable infrastructure. Should I have a defective printer? Or did I miss something...

    Problem solved. Use another port.

  • 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.

  • Cannot install the printer. The print processor is not (winprint)

    According to the scenario:

    DC1 in site 1 runs Windows Server 2012 Standard, printing and Document services are installed. Many printers are installed and work.

    DC2 in site 2 is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit, printing and Document services are installed. I want to install printers that users in this site must be able to print with.

    Same printer exist in both sites. In Site 1 on DC1, I was able to properly install the driver, add the port and installed the printer.

    I took the same driver DC2 and installed. I created the Port with the IP address of the printer but when I finish the Add Printer Wizard I get an error message saying: cannot install the printer. There is no winprint print processor.

    I was looking in many forums and before you ask, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Print Processors\winprint key does not exist on two domain controllers (tried to create thispost), but makes no difference.

    The winprint.dll file does not exist in the C:\Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\w32x86 directory on any of the machines, but is located under C:\Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\x64 on the two machines.

    There seems to be no difference in configuration between these two machines, but as I mentioned abov, on DC1, I'm able to add the printer, and I'm not on DC2.

    Is there anything I can do to get the job to the printer on DC2?

    (And for those who ask why install on a domain controller, there is no member server in this site).

    With the latest Lightroom CC on a Windows 7 with the latest updates, all of a sudden the printer profile in the print job / the color of the right side of the print Module management framework is therefore more pre-filled with the last printer profile I used. It is always empty when I re-enter the print Module.

  • Printer processor no longer on my computer

    I have Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 series, and the PRINT PROCESSOR does not exist so my Kodak printer will no longer work with her.  How can I get the processor of the printer on my computer?  It works perfectly until a month ago, then the printer has stopped working with my computer.  Kodak has been contacted and took control of my computer, and then could not solve the problem and reminded earlier.  With control even once, Kodak showed me that the error led to a printer on Ms missing processor.

    I have automated updates of Windows, so I don't understand how this 'left' my computer element.  Ms. wants $99 back on my computer... but there must be a simpler solution.  Any suggestions?  Thank you

    The computer has service pack 3.  The error says"cannot install the printer.  The print processor does not exist"... does this help?

    Not really.  I had this error before.

    There is a Microsoft KB Article that address this issue: but I'm a little suspicious of the applicability of this article because (a) you probably have a printer standard consumer (which is unlikely to have a "custom print processor"), (b) If your printer requires a "custom print processor", then Kodak should have known on this subject and what is provided , and (c) your system apparently works OK without the hotfix mentioned in the article.

    Although I can't guarantee it will solve your problem, I suggest that you clean your printer drivers by following the instructions here-->

    Before you start to follow Bruce, open Control Panel > add or remove programs and remove anything related to your printer.  Restart the computer.

    Then follow the steps of Bruce 1-5.  Restart the computer.  As Bruce wrote, these measures should be sufficient, but if you want to be great depth, download and run cleanspl.exe OR follow steps 6-14 (in step 9, do not start the spooler or you will probably not be able to delete the files in the later stages; the spooler is restarted in step 14).

    When you are finished, reinstall the printer as if you were doing so for the first time.  Do not connect the printer to your computer until you are prompted to do so by the software.  You should probably go on the Kodak website and download the latest software for your printer package; Otherwise, use the CD that comes with it.
