FMS -> Runtime Error 217 (No Default Printer Selected) -> Solution & Question
I have read previous threads about issues with FMS and the runtime error 217 which is related to no default printer being selected.
I've been tackling it for a week or so now and I seem to of found a solution however not my most favorite, I was wondering if anyone else has a better solution to the problem.
When looking into what was happening with the FMS it only seemed to agree with manual assignment of the printer, this straight away becomes a problem in a domain environment with network printers.
I attempted to use a command line to swap the printer to another and back again, this however still resulted in the runtime error.
So Instead I played about with our Group Policy, I moved the printer from a computer policy to a user policy and assigned it to the people who use FMS with that printer.
The issue is resolved from doing this however, this seems a little bit of a mess to me the less GPO's the better in my opinion.
Is there any other way of solving this?
