1003 ERROR_CAN_NOT_COMPLETE <--> No NTSTATUS matched
Is the spooler still running on the client? HP has an issue with older
print drivers which use a version of hpbmini.dll that happily check the OS
version and access violate when that version is 6 (it's not expected since
XP was OS version 5) and the spooler happily follows the failure into
oblivion. If this file is not version 16 or greater on XP, go to hp.com and
search vista hpbmini.dll.
