Re: print spool error 1068
A 1068 is a service dependency error. Print Spooler can't start because it thinks a service it depends on is not running.
click Start, then click run. Type in "services.msc" without the " " marks
Go into services and check its
dependencies, it should just be the RPC service, which you shouldn't be
able to stop, check that RPC is running
Double click print
spooler and click the dependencies tab. See if there are any other
dependencies set besides rpc. If so you will want to find them in
services and make sure they are set to automatic and are running (will
probably need to start them).
Then try to start "Print Spooler" service, should work. May need to reinstall printer drivers then.

Spool.svc is not running. Make the service active and try again. Printer Properties cannot be displayed. The print spooler service is not running. Printer cannot be removed. The print spooler service is not running. Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup. (When clicking Add Printer) Operation could not be completed.

SPOOL.SVC is an operating system function which carries files through the operating system
for printing. It must be STARTED (active) to be able to print or access
any printer's functions. This file usually starts automatically with
Windows, however operating system issues may cause it to become

If errors occur and the service cannot be started, there is another issue within the operating system itself.
HI, right click on my computer -> select manage -> one should be
services and something (or something like that) open that and go to
services -> find the printer spool service and right click on it
-> click on properties -> in the printer spool service properites
click the "Start" button and also under a drop down menu change it from
"Disabled" to "Automatic".... This is what you did right ?
Log in to Administrator account and try it there. If that doesn't work then install a fresh copy of Windows Xp. It should work now. Thank you.
hi! Print Spooler is actually a service for your Operating system- Try this
Click on start and click on run in the open box type in services.msc and your services local window should open, scroll down and look for print spooler, highlight it and do a right click and on the dropdown menu left click on stop and it will go to a process of stopping the service and then right click back and click on start. if you get an error message about print spooling or spooler, then that means you have a problem with the operating system. call or go to microsoft help and support online in that case. and RPC server unavailable error has something to do with a network printer. but i believe you setup the printer locally.
There are several ways to resolve printer spooler error, probably because there are many variations of this error. The error caused by faulty software can be resolved by deleting all the information found in the directory. Thereafter, navigate to the Control Panel, click on Administrative Tools and then services icon. Find the service labeled Print Spooler, highlight it and restart the process. If that doesn’t work, the program might be corrupted. Click on start, then Run. Search for the document labeled services.msc, and this will trigger the opening of another window. On this window, scroll down and click “Print Spooler”. Check its setting and turn on automatic mode. Click Okay, and restart the machine. If you’re lucky, this might be all you have to do. Still doesn’t work? Navigate to the Add/Remove Programs screen of the Control Panel. Find the all the software responsible for making the printer run including the drivers, and uninstall them. Be sure to be thorough about it, or the problem may not be solved. Download the latest copy of your printer’s software from the manufacturer and reinstall it. get more information for printer spooler error .Hope this helps you.
