  • Cannot remove printers

    Hi everyone. I have a printserver oon which i changed the printernames.

    When I want to delete the old printernames on the windows xp client systems it simply tells me that the printer doesn't exist on the server and therefore cannot delete it.

    I have 100 clients and the obsolete printers have to go. A scrypt will also not work. Is it possible to delete these in the registry? This way I could use group policy to delete the keys when a user loggs in. I already saw some keys but deleting these doesn't actually delete them from control panel-> printers. PLs help

    A script will also not work
    Why is that?
