To start print spooler service, go to start > run > services.msc then press enter. scroll down the list to find print spooler, then right-click then click on start. You need to have it automatically start in the future, so you have to right-click > properties > startup type > change to automatic. Then try reinstalling your printer if necessary.

How can I get my spooler to work again?


Hi,

please follow the below steps

Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running.

1. Press Window key + R to open the Run dialog Start and type services.msc and click OK.

2. Double-click the Printer Spooler service, and then change the startup type to Automatic. This sets the Spooler service to start automatically when you restart the computer. Click OK.

3. Restart the computer and try to install the printer again.

If that doesn't work, the problem could be related to corrupted printer drivers that are installed on the computer.

Try uninstalling all printer software from the computer reboot and make afresh installaiotn of the drivers. This also include PDF writer or faxing software as well.

My window xp2 is not installing window installer 3.1 help me


Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable supports Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 or later, Windows XP, Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 contains Windows Installer 3.1 and therefore can't be installed or upgraded by this redistributable.

Read the above, Windows Installer 3.1 already in in SP2. Why do you need to install it?

Virtual Printer Deleted after Windows Update....I Can't printing MDI from internet page ((( Help please ... Office 2003 SP2 Had Before This MDI Printer very Good


Hi,

First step, ( May be your print spooler service is not running )

1. See if you are able to find no printers at all in "printer and faxes" on control panel.
2. If not - go to start->run -> type "services.msc" and hit enter. Locate "Print spooler" service. See if that service is running on not. You might see "Started" in front of that means working. You can right click "print spooler" and restart once and check "printer and faxes" on control panel. If not follow step 2.

step 2:

You can reinstall the MDI printer by doing custom installation of Microsoft Office 2003. To do that follow below instructions
1. Go to Start->Run->Type "appwiz.cpl" and hit enter. This will open up Add Remove program wizard for you.
2. Now locate MS Office installation and click on "Change"
3. Check mark "add or remove feature" and click "next".
4. On the botton of the installation window check mark "choose advanced customization of application" and click "next"
5. Under "Microsoft office" expand "+" sign of "office tools"
6. Locate the object "Microsoft office document imaging". Click the icon and select "not available" and click on "update". This will uninstall the MDI drive.
7. Repeat the steps from point 2 and locate the object "Microsoft office document imaging" click the icon and select "run from my computer" and click on update.

Above steps will re-install the MDI drivers and you can find the virtual printer going to printer and faxes on control panel.

Print Spooler service is not running. I tried to start the Print spooler service but it it shows ' local computer cannot open service'.I am the administrator. Kindly suggest.


It sounds like a firewall issue or a driver issue - check through the settings on your firewall and see if print spooler service has been blocked. then remove and reinstall the printer driver on the administrator machine, and re-network the printer - goto "my network places", select "add printer" and follow the instructions in the wizard that opens Please post back with some more details of your network - there could be another hardware issue that is causing a clash. Hope this helps :)
