Windows 7 error 0x000003e3 connecting to printers at server
Posted on 2010-08-18
We're just getting our first Win7 machine on the network and I'm experiencing an error that I can't seem to find much useful information on. Here's the setup....
Server: Windows 2008 R2 x64 with both x64 and x86 drivers installed
Client: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (clean install with no AV or firewall - yet)
Printer: Toshiba eStudio 4520c (color copier) with latest drivers
The printer drivers work fine from the server, and install fine on XP clients. However, trying to connect to the printer from this windows 7 machine give the 0x000003e3 error when trying to download drivers.
I have already tried manually adding the same x64 driver directly to the windows 7 client via print management, but it still asks to download the drivers from the server then throws the error.
It's very frustrating that there is so little information on this error code. Any help is greatly appreciated as I can't deploy this machine until the printers work.
