Why can't I print from Excel 2003 in a W2K3 Terminal Server, but can within other MS Office Applications?
Posted on 2011-10-25
I have an issue where when a standard user (not an administrator), they receive an error message from within MS Excel 2003 that there are no Printers installed, and then goes on to explain how to setup a printer.
I am able to print as a standard user from every other application on this Terminal Server. The server itself has the Office 2003 standard suite installed, as well as some in-house applications which are MS Access Databases as well, with some scripting in the background to put icons on desktops etc. I am able to print within Excel and other applications on the remaining servers that are part of the cluster, and each server in the cluster is identical. They were created from a template within VMWare and so on and so forth.
The server itself is part of a Terminal Server Farm, so is in a clustered environment.
The OS on this box is "Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2" Standard Edition
Would anyone know how to fix this? I have tried repairing the office suite on this box using add/remove programs, as well as trying to repair Excel 2003 within the app itself, but to no avail.
Any suggestions on how to fix this are welcome!
