I'm running WinXP Pro SP2 and an HP Deskjet HP930C printer.
When printing with admin permissions printing is fine. However, when logged in as a restricted user, there are 2 problems:
- With spooling disabled (print dicrectly to printer), the program from which I submit the print job will hang for about a minute before printing starts.
- With spooling enabled there is no printng at all: the print job just apperars in the printer screen for a short while and then vanishes, but no printing takes place. (Print Spooler service is set as automatic and if I check the service its status is 'started' indeed.)
Saw many items on the Internet about spooler issues in the context of XP but none of them seem to apply to my problem. Because of problem (1) I don't expect this to be a spooler issue anyway. I couldn't find any other printing related services in the list of services.
Anybody any ideas?
