Dear Experts,
I have problem in printing the document.When i try to print any thing message comes like:

"There was an error printing the document  to usb_lexmarkx125.Do you want to retry or cancel the job ?"

I contact lexmark tech support and he told me to go to start menu -> run -> regedt32.when i did that he was looking for "HKEY_LOCAL_Machine" on top left corner but i only have "HKEY_CURRENT_USER".He was saying something wrong with my windows 2000.If anybody can guide me on this issue i would be greatly appreciate your time and help.

Thanks.

Go to the menu item labeled Window and see if "HKEY_LOCAL_Machine on local machine" is listed. If so click on that.

Hi bhavesh55,
I believe what may be happening to you is that your system has maximized the window, so all you see is the KKEY_CURRENT_USER window. HAve you tried minimizing the inner window and looking for the other windows?
If that doesn't work, you could try the older registry editor,
Start> Run > regedit
Then browse using the folders list on the left.

Hope this helps!

:o)

Problem with using regedit is in Win2000 you can't set permissions with it. I suspect that is what the Lexmark techs were trying to help bhavesh55 do. :)

BTW hi Bartender_1

OK, now that the hijacking is complete....

The summit's in Redmond, Washington (at the MS campus). MS pays for everything but flights...my company offered to pay, but my wife's due to have a baby tomorrow! Prioirities! Ha!
