Windows Server 2008 Services and user permissions error: Invalid Printer Specified

P: 1
Hi All,
here is our situation we have Windows Server 2008 Standard OS (64 bit) and logged in as an administrator and we have installed a windows service service with another account which belongs to Administrator group.
So OS is running under and administrator group and the windows service running on a different user which is in administrator group.
Shortly what this windows service does is using Crystal Reports template and sening to a network printer. During this process we get the error message "Invalid Printer Spcecified". When we remove the template
just try to send it to the printer, this time we get error message "invalid handle". When we reboot/restart the server, it work both ways however we want to be successfully without rebooting/restarting the server.
Note: the printer driver is OK.
Shortly is there any way to accomplish without rebooting the server. We used some tools like PSEXEC but did not help.
Remember if we reboot everything ok .
Thanks and regards,
Selami Ozlu
