    Error 0x000003eb connecting to shared printer on a different domai

    Hello,

    I'm getting an error 0x000003eb when trying to connect to a printer that is
    connected and shared on a computer that is located on a different domain.
    My laptop is part of a domain also, just not the domain that has the printer.

    The printer is on a Windows XP Professional workstation. It's a HP LaserJet
    4050.

    My laptop is Windows Vista Ultimate with every single patch installed.

    Exact error message is:
    Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed
    (error 0x000003eb).

    Any help would be appreciated... I've tried all the usual things that I
    could think of, even messing with the UAC.

    I am able to do a net view \\netBIOS_Name and a dir \\netBIOS_Name\Print$

    Bradley

    E:\>winerror 0x000003eb
    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.

    I'm receiving the same error message, similar situation but the
    printer is different. This one is a Toshiba e-STUDIO45 network copier
    configured to print over a network via a print server (all connected
    using IP). It sounds like "No NTSTATUS matched" relates to the driver
    not being happy when it checks the version of Windows, is that a
    correct statement?

    Thanks in advance,

    Lee Emmert

    No it just means the driver caused the spooler service to terminate on the
    client. There a bunch of drivers that can perform this function.
