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.

The issue is with the print spooler. If the operating system is XP then click on start >> run >> type services.msc >> the services window opens, now locate the print spooler and right click on it and select stop(if it is started) then again right click on it and then click on start. Now the spooler service will start, then try installing the all-in-one software.
