Network Printers In Powerpoint
We have a problem with powerpoint. When you load the program, if you then go to print as soon as you click print its pops up a warning box to say no printers are installed and so you cannot even get to the print screen where you select which printer and hit "ok" to print.
There are 2 network printers installed but powerpoint will only recognise that they are there if i go into the printers and set the other printer to default then suddenly you click print in powerpioint and it now knows there are 2 printers and then you can print.
I dont think this has been an issue before because that stupid XPS printer has always been lingering but we removed it from a new build.
Has anyone come accross this before or knows what is going on here?

I answered a very similar question yesterday. Hope this helps you too.

If you stop the print spooler service, delete all the files out of the print spooler folder ( not the drivers ) unless you want to delete the drivers and restart the print spooler and start again im assuming that does more or less the same thing ( except on the ms kb ) they are stating to also delete some registry keys so am guessing the cleanspl exe is a lot faster and easier although it will also wipe out the printers / drivers etc and reset to defaults

You're right cleanspl exe does a lot more than just delete printers, but all of what you mentioned. You can also do many machines remotely which is handy.
