I can't add a printer to a domain controller or Windows Vista machines
Posted on 2007-07-20
I can't add a printer to a Domain Controller. It's Windows Server 2003 Enterprise; I'm trying to add an HP LaserJet 4350 by running "Setup.exe". The application launches, chugs for 20 seconds and then just disappears.
A similar failure happens on a Windows Vista workstation. In that case, it came up to the "Install Printer" screen, and THEN went away.
The same printer installs just fine on an XP machine, same network, same (network) printer.l
(On the server) In the Event Viewer, there is an Application Error, which says:
Event ID 1000
Faulting application _hpcdb.exe, version 126.96.36.199, faulting module _hpcdb.exe, version 188.8.131.52, fault address 0x00046604.
Event ID: 4097 (Dr. Watson)
The application, C:\DOCUME~1\dwight\LOCALS~1\Temp\_hpcdb.exe, generated an application error The error occurred on 07/20/2007 @ 15:36:10.781 The exception generated was c0000005 at address 00446604 (_hpcdb)
