See if there is any spooler.exe running in your task manager. Press ctrl, alt + delete to go there. If you see the process, click to highlight then end it. Then restart your computer and the printer itself. Then try to initiate a print again once everything is loaded.
Please let me know if this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.
Unfortunately on their website it isn't listed as supported by windows 7. Also when a new operating system comes out there is always a lot of issues in the beginning. I have seen quite a few windows 7 problems of this nature. My first question would be did you run the setup in compatibility mode for windows vista? This would be the first thing to try. Thank you, Lee
go back to your services where you start the print spooler. open the dependency tab. there it will tell you what other services the print spooler needs to have running. check them and if any are disabled change them to auto and restart them. reboot and you should be OK.
Restart the Print Spooler: start-> run-> type services.msc-> scroll down to the print spooler service n hit start. Verify that that the Print Spooler service, and all the services that it depends on, are correctly installed and running.
Open the Services Management Console (click Start, Run and enter services.msc).
Double-click the Print Spooler service to open its Properties window.
On the General tab, check that Startup type is Automatic.
Select the Dependencies tab.
Note all of the dependent services listed, then close the Print Spooler Properties window.
Repeat the above steps for the dependent services noted.
If any of the dependent services are missing or cannot be started, try uninstalling all installed printer drivers and then reinstalling them. If this method cannot be completed or does not resolve the problem, try Method 2. Method 2 Remove all Print Spooler service dependencies other than the Remote Procedure Call service.
Click Start, Run and enter sc config spooler depend= RPCSS (there must be a space after "=" but not before it.)
By removing the other dependencies the Print Spooler service should be able to run, but the printer functionality may be affected, and it may be necessary to reinstall the printer drivers. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
