      I’m using Windows Server 2008 since a couple of days on my laptop. I currently have a problem with printer on network printers.

      Installation of the printer via \ipadressprinters works, but when trying to print the test page, I receive the error
      “test page failed to print. would you like to view the print troubleshooter for assistence? operation could not be completed (error 0x0000000d)”
      Also print another document fails (“your file could not be printed due to an error”).

      I’ve already tried to disable the firewall, but that didn’t solve the problem.

      Anyone having the same problem? Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

      Kind regards,

        Hello hdaerden,

        Never heard of this problem before, but here a link that might help you: Microsoft Technet: windows cannot connect to the printer.error 0x0000000d

        Or try to add the printer via the commandline by executing the command:

        net use lpt# \serverprinter /persistent:yes

        for example:

        net use lpt2 \compaqpchpdeskjet /persistent:yes

        Where lpt2 is a printer port that physically doesn’t exist on your pc.

        Hope this helps you a bit! 🙂
