  • Print Spooler error 1068: the dependency service or group could start. __

    I tried - unsuccessfully - restart the print spooler on a box of XP with SP3.  I read the previous posts for this error and this box refuses to restart the service.

    Is there an easy way to fix this without reverting to a system reset?  Can I run a repair?  If so, it will fix the problem?  I tried to run a restore of the system to a previous date and who could not do anything for me either.

    When you attempt to start the Print Spooler Service, error 1068 means "the dependency service does not exist. the dependency service or group was able to start. »

    Depending on your environment and your type of printer installed, your Print Spooler Service will have other dependent services that must run before the Print Spooler Service starts.  If the dependent services do not work, you will see an error 1068 or a similar message on the dependent services when you try to start the Print Spooler Service.

    Some Lexmark printers add their own XP services and start the Print Spooler Service, lists them as dependencies and that is why these Lexmark Services must run before the print service spooler will begin.  It may be listed as the LexBce Server.

    You now or have you ever have all installed Lexmark printers?  If Yes, do you still use Lexmark printers?

    Depending on your printing environment, if you use another type of printer, you can have other Service listed tab in the Print Spooler Service dependencies.

    Use the Applet of Services XP to check the dependencies of print spooler and options.

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:

    services.msc

    Click OK to open the Services Applet.

    Locate the Print Spooler Service, right-click, choose Properties, and then look at the Dependencies tab.  Services listed there must run before the Print Spooler Service starts.  If they don't, you'll get an error 1068 or a similar message on the dependent services when you try to start the Print Spooler Service.

    You should always see the service remote procedure call (RPC) and maybe a few others depending on the type of printer that you have installed (Lexmark printers can add some dependency Services to your configuration of XP).  All dependent services must run before the Print Spooler Service starts.

    Dependent Services may vary according to the type of printer that you have installed.

    The RPC service is also required for many other things to work properly and is usually still running and the autostart value.

    If the RPC Service does not work and does not start automatically, you can have other problems, but start with the easy stuff first.

    Of the Services Applet, find the service remote procedure call (RPC) and if it does not, right-click and start it and set it to automatic.

    Then find and all the other print spooler dependency services listed in the Print Spooler Service Dependencies tab.  They will be lance automatically the next time you reboot your system (if that is your desire), set the startup type for these Services to automatic.

    When everything works as you want, restart and check your Services again to be sure that they start correctly and solve any addition
    questions.

    If the remote procedure call (RPC) service is not listed as a dependency for your Print Spooler Service, you must inform XP that the print spooler service depends on the RPC service.

    Click Start, run, and in the box type (including important space after the "equal" sign):

    dependent on the spooler of sc config = RPCSS

    Click OK to assign the RPC service for the print spooler service, and then make sure that the RPC Service is running and start your Print Spooler Service.

    If you still can not understand it, react with the items that you see the tab of the Print Spooler Service dependencies.

    Don't forget to restart and check that everything works correctly after each adjustment.

    Please note that using the above command will effectively remove all the current (and perhaps old) Print Spooler dependency assigned for the Print Spooler Service and assign it only dependent on the RPC Service.  It would be 'normal '.

    The dependence of CPP Service would be typical of most facilities, or after you have uninstalled all the time some printers (Lexmark), but your printer may have a few other dependencies.  If it still does not respond, we'll fix it!

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

    I need YOUR voice and the points for helpful answers and propose responses. I'm saving for a pony!

    Hello yan_dao69,

    I suggest that you try the methods below to solve the problem.

    Method 1:

    I suggest that you run the printer troubleshooter. This will automatically diagnose and fix printing problems:

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/open-the-printer-Troubleshooter

    Ideally, this would set the print spooler service issues.

    Method 2:

    I suggest that you disable the Antivirus software temporarily and verify if you are able to start the print spooler service. You can check the link that will give you information disable antivirus below:

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-in/Windows7/disable-antivirus-software

    Note: Please make sure that you enable the antivirus software after the test to keep your computer protected.

    Method 3:

    Check the dependency of the spooler services in the registry.

    a. Click Start, type regedit in the search box and press ENTER.

    b. look for, and then click the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Spooler

    c. right-click on spooler, click Export, save a backup file on your desktop.

    NOTE: If an unforeseen problem be encountered after changing the registry, please double-click on the file to restore the backup.

    d. in the details pane, if the DependOnService value shows values of RPCSS and other key, right-click DependOnService and then click on edit.

    e. in the value data box, delete the other keys and then click OK.

    f. exit the registry editor.

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    Have a laptop dell inspiron 1545 with vista (build 6002: service pack 2).  Have a wireless network at home.  laptop stopped connecting to the network 2 weeks ago.  When I try, I get a message "dependency service or group was able to start.  When I go to manage networks, there is no detected networks.  Cable internet access also does not work with this laptop. cards (minimap dell 1397 Wireless) wireless and ethernet say thet controller work correctly.  2 other laptops in the House are normally working on the network.  Reviewing service autoconfiguration WLAN and Wired AutoConfig and when I try to start the two ths get message... "Error 1747 the Authentication Service is unknown".  Another little thing, I noted... isatap.home don't works do not-message says to download the drivers- but not on net so cant)... don't know if this is related.

    can you help me?  Thank you, Aodhanm.

    I just wanted to post that I used the

    netsh winsock reset

    command to fix this same error 1747 known when you try to manually start the WLAN
    on a Windows 7 Pro computer.

    After a restart it worked fine.

  • No firewall or Internet, Windows Firewall errors: "0x8007042c" and "error 1068: the dependency service or group could start.

    Problem started when the McAfee Firewall shuts off and I could not turn it back on.  Also I can't activate Windows error 0x8007042c firewall.  Also no Internet access due to firewall restrictions.  Tried to manually turn the Windows Firewall service (as an administrator), but now get error 1068: the dependency service or group could start.  Strangely, the McAfee Firewall seems to be OK again?

    McAfee and click OK in the same sentence? Hmmm... Take a look at this site for some good information and instructions for the removal of malicious software.

    Actually try updating your driver: (use a wire or download on another computer and transfer via)
    removable media)

    Control Panel - network - write down of the brand and the model of the Wifi - double click top - tab of the driver - write
    version - click the driver update (cannot do something that MS is far behind the pilots of certification). Then
    Right click on the Wifi device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - it will refresh the driver stack.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    Download - SAVE - go where you put it - right click – RUN AS ADMIN.

    You can download several at once however restart after the installation of each of them.

    After watching the system manufacturer, you can check the manufacturer of the device an even newer version. (The
    manufacturer of system become your backup policies).

    Repeat for network (NIC) card and is a good time to get the other updated drivers as Vista like
    updated drivers.

    I would also turn off auto update for the drivers. If the updates Windows suggests a just HIDE as they
    are almost always old, and you can search drivers manually as needed.
