Printer function address error

By jsarinana ·
I put up a new NT file and print server. I setup a printer to share out to our Domain users. I added this network printer to a Windows 2000 and a NT 4.0 clients and it worked fine. I later changed the port on this network printer. Now the NT client has no problem using this network printer. My problem is the Windows 2000 client get's a "Function address 0x7800167c caused a protection fault. (Exception code 0xc0000005) some or all property page(S) may not be displayed" I logged in as a diff. user on this Windows 2000 client and added the network printer and it works fine. The problem is only on this Windows 2000 computer using the same client login name which is is the owner of this Windows 2000 computer

Sounds like a rights issue or local profile corruption. I would try to first compare if the user account that is having problems has the same rights as the user account that is not. Second, delete the local profile on the win2000 client and try login in again. Windows will recreate that local profile but settings will not be saved. Make sure that the domain user acounts have enough rights under the local computer to change ports etc. I hope this helps

You need to login as the previous users with the printer that was installed, and remove and re-add the printer. The drivers and mapping of the drivers has changed and it is trying to printer to a non-existing printer.
