  • Can't install any print drivers on a Windows 2000 Server

    Hello All,

    I am having a problem with a Windows 2000 SP4 Server configured as a DC in which if I want to add a new driver not before installed on the server it gives me an error.

    Procedure:

    Open Printers folder
    Click File, Server Properties
    Select the Drivers tab of the Server properties
    Select Add

    Browse to select the driver and click OK to install.
    The installation seems to go ahead just before completing and then I get an error dialog box with Title.

    Add Printer Driver Wizard

    with message;

    Unable to install "Driver Name", Windows 2000, Intel driver. Operation could not be completed.

    I have tried this with many different drivers and still no luck.
    I have re-service packed the server and also cleaned the spooler with cleanspl.exe.

    Any advise would be MUCH appreciated!!

    Thanks,
    Marco

    Make sure driver signing is not set to block unsigned drivers.

      Hi,

      Thanks for the reply but I changed the driver signing to warn but it still doesn't install the driver.

      Any further ideas would be much appreciated.

      Regards.
