This is very quite urgent.
I have installed and configured a new Windows server 2008 STD 64bit and installed / configured terminal server. Initially all Windows XP computers that were logging on to the terminal server, their printers were not listed at all. I read about the problem, and came across that I was suppose to install service pack 3, and .NET framework 3.5 with SP1, make sure that Terminal server 6.1 is installed (Which comes standard with service pack 3)
All is well, I logged on to the terminal server, still the same problem. The initial XP computer has a 2200 HP LaserJet computer. I then went to Microsofts website to update the very old driver from 2200 series PCL to 2200 series PCL5 driver. Now when I log on to the terminal server the printer shows up. But when I attempt to print, the following error appears in the even viewer:
Log Name: System
Date: 2009/10/08 09:17:25 AM
Event ID: 6161
Task Category: None
The document Test Page, owned by user, failed to print on printer user (redirected 4). Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.
Data type: RAW. Size of the spool file in bytes: 134159. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \\TERMSERVER. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 5. Access is denied.
I am stuck, and dont know what to do. I came across an article that said it could be that the temp file that Windows was trying to create was being "access denied" because the user did not have privileges to do so, and another website that said the user needs to be able to have rights to the print spooler??? Surely this is not necessary?
Please help, Thank-you in advance!
