: I was sdriven to despair by this error that crippled the printing ubsystem and anything else related to it.
: I am repeating the solution suggested by FanTasteYou. This worked like a charm.
: Thank You FanTasteYou, whoever you are.
: ---------------------------
: I don't know the reason for this problem, but i know a working solution to solve your mistake :
: - You have to delete all aborted Printerjobs in the Directory \WinNT\System32\spool\Printers. (I DID THIS)
: - Delete all Printer-Files in the Directory \WinNT\System32\spool\w32x86 - (I COULDN"T FIND DIRECTORY!)
: - Delete all DLL-Files in the Directory \WinNT\System32\spool\prtprocs\w32x86, but not the Windows-DLL "sfmpsprt.dll" - this is the original Printer-DLL coming with Windows-Setup.
: (System wouldn't let me delete file xjprint.dll (got error message that file is in use). However, I could move this file out into the desktop - which I did.
: There were two other files - blproces.dll, blprocess.dll.del : I moved these two files out to the desktop as well)

: After this, you have to reboot Windows and you can reinstall your Printerdriver.

: System just worked fine after reboot. Strangely, this procedure did not affect the two Network Printers I have installed as well - it took out the Xerox DeskJet printer - the culprit!).


I have attempted to do this, but each file that needs to be deleted is not on the system. So not sure what i need to do next. thanks randy
