print spooler shockwave object issues

Q: print spooler shockwave object issues

I have a Lexmark Impact S305 Wireless Printer. Have had it working for about 3 months. I am running Windows 7 32 bit. Just started having spooler issues. Have removed the printer and reinstalled the driver and printer and still having same issue.

I can print one job, regardless of where it came from, word doc, pdf, etc. The second job does not print. There are always two things hung in the printers folder shockwave object and .shd file. After the first print job, I can stop the spooler, empty the contents of the printers folder, restart the spooler and still not print the second job. Of course when I do this, the object and files show back up in the printers folder.

My only way around this currently is to stop the spooler, clear the folder, restart the computer and the printer. Then I get the chance for one more job. I thought by reinstalling the printer and driver maybe I could fix it, however, its back to one and done. Not fun when I have two teenagers needing to print homework......

Any help would be appreciated!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I cannot force the start of print spooler in services or msconfig on WXP, so I cannot install my software for my printer. I have gone to Microsoft and nothing to help out to force the spooler to start.
Any ideas? Registry?

A:Error 3 cannot find specified path for print spooler!! Cant start Print Spooler.

Try this:

In the tree on the left choose Services (local)

On the right scroll down to Print spooler and double click

This morning my computer wasn't able to print. It didn't show that any printers were connected to the computer and when I tried to add a printer it says "Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running."

So I clicked Run > "Service.msc" to make sure the Print Spooler had started. It says it's started and it is set to start up automatically.

I have two printers here, one is a Canon MP460 and the other is a Brother HL-2170W and I uninstalled both of them from the registry of the computer and downloaded the drivers for both printers. The Brother printer drivers seemed to install just fine (I tried downloading the drivers and I also tried to install them from the disc) but I still cannot add the printer.

When I try to install the Canon printer drivers an error message pops up that says "Processing cannot be continued because the Print Spooler service has been stopped. Restart the computer to start the Print Spooler service and then try again."

I restarted and the same thing keeps happening, I've tried every solution I could think of and I've researched to try to find an answer, but I just can't figure out what the problem is.

After installing the latest batch up updates for XP SP3 the print spooler service is playing up and preventing people from printing.

It is a HP CLJ CP1215 USB printer that is shared.

I have followed steps on TechNet (You cannot print and you receive the error message "Spooler subsystem app has encountered a problem and needs to close") and for a while all seemed to be working but the issue has retuned a couple of hours later.

We have restarted both the PC and the printer more than once.

We have reinstalled the printer drivers.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi. Firstly, sorry if this is the wrong section, but I didn't really know where to put it.

Now this is my problem: Randomly, my laptop running (Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit) began behaving oddly. Control panel would crash whenever I tried to access it, I couldn't connect to any networks (wireless or hardwired) and my anti-virus wouldn't run.

After trying various things to no avail (everything ran fine in Safe mode) I tried a system restore. This was unsuccessful, not only leaving the same problem, but adding to it. Now whenever the computer booted it, after login the screen would go black and I'd have to Alt-Ctrl-Delete, end "explorer" and start it back up again.

After system restore failed, I decided it may be a service issue, so disabled almost everything and put the services back on 5 at a time. Using this method I found out the Print Spooler was the cause of these issues. Keeping that disabled everything runs fine. However I need to use my printer - thus the problem.


Does anyone have any knowledge of this, or why it would occur? Although it's not terrible that I can't print, it's quite inconvinient. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Anyone have any idea why I am having excessive IE7 shutdowns as a result of this add-on?

It's the Shockwave Flash Object ActiveX Control FlDbg10b.ocx by Adobe Systems, Inc - which of course is required to run anything shockwave/macromedia on the web (this includes a lot)

At least 4 or 5 times per day I get the message "Shockwave Flash Object FlDbg10b.ocx has encountered problems and needs to close." After clicking okay, IE7 shuts down. Very frustrating.

I recently did a complete fresh installation of XP, and all the software and updates required following. Decided to stick with IE7 instead of going IE8 just yet. Perhaps I should also mention that I installed along with it some brand new software - Abobe CS4 Web Premium Edition (needed this stuff for school) - Wondering if there's any conflict here.

Tried lots of trouble shooting to no avail and just hoping someone out there in tech land might have a clue. Thanks for any replies.

Hello

There is a problem in which Flash Player stops once during the operation of the business portal currently operating based on Flash Player, so please contact us.

As a result of the verification, it is confirmed that it is not related to Adobe's Flash Player and is related to the function of Shockwave Flash Object installed in Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11.

Therefore, I would like to know whether it is possible to delete and reinstall the Shockwave Flash Object function.
And I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade or downgrade only the version of the Shockwave Flash Object (or any other related function) while leaving the version of Internet Explorer.

Thank you.

The print spooler chokes on both of my Windows 10 machines when trying to deal with certain pdf files. For instance when I tried to print https://thebasscase.files.wordpress....01/so-what.pdf via my browser (Chrome), it printed the first 6 pages, but the printer showed an error when it came to the seventh page. When I then tried to create another job just to print the seventh page, it just hung around in the print spool and nothing happened at the printer. I tried this several times on two machines. It was also impossible either to cancel the job in the print queue manager or to stop the spooler in the services manager in order to manually clear the print queue, which meant that the only way I could clear the queue was to restart the machine. I got the same behaviour whether I was printing to my physical printer or to the MS pdf printer. I also got the same behaviour when I tried to print from a different browser (Edge). This is not the first time I have had a problem with an unprintable file like this in Windows 10. Is there a solution?

Hi,

I would suggest you can try doing System Restore to a date when your system was working fine. If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer performs as expected, then Uninstall and reinstall the printer Driver and check the functionality of the printer.

If you are using windows 7 you can connect your USB printer by following few easy steps mentioned below:Plug in the printer, and ensure that it's turned off. Also, set up the printer with ink and paper and all that other good stuff, according to the directions that came with the printer.
Connect a USB cable to the printer and to your laptop.
Turn on the printer.
Since you're using a USB printer it installs software for you on its own. After the printer has been set up and recognized by Windows, you can either print or save some energy and turn the printer off.


If you're having trouble adding your printer, open the Control Panel and double-click the Printers or Printers and Faxes icon to display the list of printers available to your computer. The Add a Printer or Add Printer task can be clicked to run the Add Printer Wizard, which helps you complete the printer setup task.

You can even refer to the HP support URL mentioned for further troubleshooting: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-topics/printer-installation/printer-usb-troubleshooting.html

I'm running XP Professional. Junk print jobs keep showing up on my Brother MFC 7840-W printer. When viewed in the print queue, the file has no name, but shows a size of 87 bytes.

The printer is installed on my computer. My computer is set up as a print server. I am still able to scan, make copies, and fax from the printer, and fax remotely from my computer. I have restored my system multiple times. I had AVG anti-virus on this machine installed a while before this started happening. I tried installing McAfee Security. The Tech Support at McAfee said there is no virus on my machine and that I should contact the printer manufacturer. Tech Support at Brother said to delete and reinstall the printer drivers. I have deleted and reinstalled the printer drivers multiple times.

I do not want to reinstall XP Pro because it may mess up the setup of an important business application which is no longer supported by the software creator.

Welcome to TSG...What make and model is your machine? Which version and service pack is your Windows O/S? Make and model of the printer might be helpful as well.

Go to services again-double click the spooler service, click the 'dependencies' tab, and see if there are other services besides RPC which your print spooler requires. Some lexmark printers, for instance, require that a service called Lexbccs (not sure about the spelling) must also be running for the spooler service to start.

I have a fairly new PC computer running Win 8 64bit. Initial setup went off without a hitch. Wireless printers and such all worked fine.


Now, I select "print" from Microsoft Word, or Notepad, or any program for that matter, nothing happens, i.e. no print que, no printer page, nada. My control panel shows several printers installed. I have tried to delete all printers to start from scratch, however, the printer icons pop back up as quickly as I delete them.

I tried to install a newly purchased printer, but a message was returned stating, "no printer spooler service running" or something to that effect. I then opened the service page and turned the print spooler "on' in automatic mode. Nothing changed. It still returns a message about "Print Spooler not running", even though it is turned on in the services page!

I might add that this computer is part of a home sharing network with two other desktop PCs. They both perform flawlessly, interfacing wirelessly with the two HP printers on-line. The other desktops are running win 7 64bit.

I am truly out of airspeed and ideas. Thank you for your help.

Ok here's my situation. We have a Windows 2003 Print Server sharing 133 printers with approx. 300 users. We have 4 Terminal Servers hosting about half of all of our users, which all connect to printers on the print server. We're experiencing extremly slow spooling on some printers on some larger documents (larger meaning 50MB). Other printers receiving print jobs from the thin clients via the Terminal Servers, get stuck in que. We end up having to restart the print spooler, printer or deleting the job. We have recently upgraded our memory (to 4gb) but with no success. The CPU's do not max out at the time of the problems. There are no unusual errors in the event log. Our C drive has 28GB of free space.
I had set up the server to reboot and auto-login weekly thinking that might help, which it has minimally. We're still experiencing problems with this and I'm all out of ideas. I wouldn't mark this as urgent, but the CEO's new secretary was trying to print a page from a .pdf and it took extremely long. She made sure everyone knew about it.

My problem seems to be so universal with Windows that I'm sure this request has been answered somewhere on this forum. I just don't know what to call it ?

What continues to plague me with MS-Windows print spooler is trying to delete a print that has already been spooled out. You go down to the task bar / open active printers / highlight the print you want deleted / Windows says it's in the process of deleteing the file.... and then just stops ! Ten minutes latter, Windows is still trying to delete the print. (And naturally, you can't print anything else in the mean time.)

Shutting off the printer doesn't help. Nor does rebooting or shutting of the computer. The pesky SOB is still there preventing anything else from being sent to the printer. And you just can't get rid of it. The only thing that's ever worked for me, was to make PrimoPDF my default printer and go in and delete the HP5500. Believe me, uninstalling and reinstalling is faster than the endless wait on the spooler as it "tries" to delete the print.

I've run into this on so many computer / printer combos I've lost count. If memory serves me correctly, this has been a problem ever since Windows 3.0 !

Any ideas of how to get rid of an unwanted print hung up in the spool ??

Thanks

The problem I have is I am trying to create a printer object which according to the msdn library can be configured like a form but it either doesnít explain or I am completely missing how to create the print object. Please donít laugh I am a hardware tech in a software world. Also if anyone has a link to a site where I could find some decent tutorials or screen shots would appreciate it.
 

A:Vb6 print object

Dim MyPrintVar as Printer

This is how you can create a printer object.

To configure it during coding type MyprintVar. and you will have a list of properties and methods.

You may not even need to create an object. You can directly access it with printer.

For example
Printer.print "This will get printed on the paper" will print these words to your default printer. Check out the properties and methods in the way I suggested. You can control the printer pretty efficiently thru this object.

When I boot up XP my printers won't show up and I can't add any. It says my print spooler isn't running. Sometimes when I reboot a couple of times they show up and all is fine. How can I manually turn on the print spooler when I get this message so my printers will show up? One is attached directly to my computer and the others are on the network.

A:Print Spooler

Is Print Spooler started in Services. Go to Start>Run, type Services.msc.
You also mention that you have a network, are you using SP2? Make sure Print Sharing is enabled , see if this article will help http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1596.

Im running Windows XP and my HP printer has stopped working. I get an error message regarding the print spooler not working. I go to the 'PRINTERS" folder and it shows that the re is no printer installed. Im wondering if I did something to cause this. I use the free version of Abexo Registry Cleaner as well as Zoftspy SE (purchased version) which I use daily. I have used Ad aware but I've deleted it.
A short time ago I did have a Trojan (ad installer?) but my NAV deleted it. I still get messages from NAV that attempts to hijack were blocked by the NAV firewall.
Also, the System restore wont work, whether I turn it off and restart it......not at all.
Please help if you can.

Respect, Hubbuddy.

Hello and welcome to TSG!!

Can you start the service? Is it set to start automatically? Or is something preventing it from starting? Does it start and immediately stop again?

A:print spooler

what happens when you try and start the print spooler - what message do you get ?
then right click on the service
then from the menu choose properties and now check the dependencies.

for each dependency entry - Check each of one of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running/starting.

Welcome to TSG!

Print Spooler requires that the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service be running.

Start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service and set the Startup Type to Automatic

Somehow the print spooler option on my computer is turned off. Also the Lexbce, both are dependent on each other. They were working at one time. Contacted Lexmark printer and they sent me directions to do exactly what I've already tried. That is, gone to Adm. Tools, service, found what I needed and tried to turn it on. No luck. Can anyone give me instructions on how to do this. I'm running windows XP.

hi sundance39, Welcome to TSG !!
Assuming you have administrator rights, Go to start, settings, Controlpanel, admin tools, services. Find Print Spooler, Right click it, select properties. Look in center for box click on down arrow select Automatic. Reboot see if it loads.

Hi there

I currently have have Vista Business,
and since i installed it my print spooler
has worked fine.

Recently I needed to add a printer and it said
" Windows can't open Add Printer, The
the local print spooler service is not running.
Please restart the spooler or restart the
machine"

After reading, I though it was a small error
and restarted, but still did not work, i also
tried to manually start it in services
and made sure it is set to start automatically.
Its other dependant services are all functioning.

I am needing to install a
Roland SP 540 V

If you could please help me please

Thnks in advanced
 

A:Print Spooler - PLEASE HELP

I had that error before. Try this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216221 to clean up the service to see if maybe it's just backlogging everything.

If not, try reinstalling the service.

I hope this is a redicusly rudimental question. My Dell will not do anything print related stating,"print spooler service is not running". How do I make that "spooler" run?

A:Print Spooler

Hi there,

If you go to start > click on "Run" type in "services.msc" and click ok.

You can find "Print Spooler" in here, can click on it once and go to start spooler just to the left.

Any problems let us know.

then go to a tab that says "processes" you will have a list of items below. just scroll down and tell me if you can see an item named "spoolsv.exe"
