  6. I'm assuming the spooler service is not running. You'll need to get the
    spooler service running before the UI commands to the service can succeed.

    When I trying to start it from command line whit this command "net start
    spooler" it says "The requested service has already been started" and in
    administrative tools I trying to start spooler service by double click on
    "services" but in "print Spooler Properties" window I saw: "Service status:
    Started".
    I did all things in your previous post but add printer still no working. I
    need it, it's very important for me how i can resolve this problem?

  8. what print drivers are installed?

    Use Printmanagement.msc to perform print related functions (Not available
    on Basic).


    Since the spooler is started, are the printers shared from another machine
    or are the previously installed printers local to your machine (either USB,
    LPT, or TCP Port)?

  10. Look for Print Management under the Administrative Tools. It is part of the
    Ultimate release.
