I'm not able to display the printer properties for any of the printers installed on the machine (local or server). So I tried to reinstall the printer and no luck.
The machine is a Windows XP w/ SP2 machine. When I try to install the printer I get completely through the Add printer Wizard and after the drivers copy over I receive the following error "Unable to install printer. The operation could no be completed."
The print spooler service is started and i've tried removing all of the drivers via Properties > Server Properties and removing all of the installed drivers.
I'm trying to install a local HP LaserJet 4250tn printer via an IP port. I can't install ANY printers.
The other weird thing is that the machine is showing a printer installed from the print server and when I simply try to print from Internet Explorer from File > Print, the printer shows up in the printers box but I receive a message stating that before I can print I need to install a printer.
I'm at a total loss... Can't find any good info online...
