JSI Tip 1521. Missing registry data can prevent browsing and connecting to a networked print server.

Use Regedt32 to navigate to:


The right hand pane should list an Order value name, a type REG_MULTI_SZ entry,
which should contain a first line of LanMan Print Services (other lines are possible).

Double click the Providers key. A LanMan Print Services sub-key should exist with at least:

 Value Name   Type   String value 
 DisplayName   REG_SZ   LanMan Print Services 
 Name   REG_SZ   Win32spl.dll 

Shutdown and restart the print server.
