JSI Tip 1771. Adding a shared local printer generates: Operation Could Not Be Completed?

The subject message usually indicates that the Server service is not started.

Use Control Panel / Services / Server / Startup / Automatic / OK.

After configuring the Server service to start up automatically, click Start. If it fails to start, and/or issues an error message, reapply your latest service pack. If that doesn't fix the problem, see tip 1368, and all linked tips.
