There was a problem retrieving printer information for this object.

I have a printer that is hookup using LPT1 and is shared. I can print
the report when changing to a network printer. I have deleted,
reinstalled, changed drivers, left that printer installed and added
another local printer with different driver, changed share name and
still can't print to the local printer. Any ideas?

Can you print a test page to the local printer?
Can you print from other Apps to the local printer?

Finally got it to work. Went into the properties of the printer and
the paper source was "unspecifie d". Set it to letter and the other to
plain.

Does anyone know how I can write a program to retrieve information about printers. Not the print queues but the physical hardware printer. I want to retrieve info such as pages printed. If anyone has a sample program or can point me in the right direction that would be great.

Having recently upgraded to Access 2002 at work, we have encountered the error message "Problem retrieving printer information for this object". Looking back through earlier posts, it appears that this is a common problem with Access 2002, but that no definitive solution has been posted.

Does anyone know how I can print a fully rendered .aspx to the server's printer? I know that, if I wanted to print to the client's printer it would be easy (ie. use javascript's window.print()).

In this brief tutorial I'll describe how you retrieve information from an Active Directory through the OLE-DB extension. While it is possible to use the LDAP extension to achieve the same goal, as you will see using Microsoft's OLE-DB provider is much easier. You will need to download and install the OLE-DB extension. Here's the location once again: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=171247&package_id=198554. See my...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
