Windows 7 64 Home
Error Code 315, Spooler Operation Failed

I'm getting this error, but I can still print locally and from the network. I have googled this forum and have not found a solution. Seems like a lot of people have this error, if there a fix yet?

Thanks for the reply, that really does not tell me how to troubleshoot this issue. I tried changing "Computer Browser" to start automaticaly, but that did not work. The driver was automatically installed by windows and there is no new driver. This is a common error, there must be a fix out there for this by now, but I cannot find one that works.

I checked everything in that article and found everything in order. Other computers can print to my computer so I do not understand why I am getting this error. Also file sharing works too. I have tried to troubleshoot this in the past without any success. I have solved all the errors on this machine but this one. There has to be a fix for this by now. Doesn't anyone have an fix for this?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Solved Error 315, PrintService Failed to share network printer

After much much frustration and dead ends, I found a simple registry fix that works for my Lexmark printer. The solution seems to be a Windows XP fix (as it refers to regedt32). However, it works for Windows 7 Home premium as well. While I cannot guarantee success with other printer brands, it certainly is worth a try. See Lexmark print spoolers conflicting with Windows The solution is to make the Print Spooler service dependent on the Server service, so it will not start until after the Server service is started. 1. Click Start, and then click Run. 2. In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK. 3. Locate and click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Spooler 4. Click Add Value on the Edit menu. 5. Type DependOnService in the Value Name box. 6. Click REG_MULTI_SZ in the Data Type box, and then click OK. 7. Type LanmanServer in the Data box, and then click OK. 8. Click Exit on the Registry menu to quit Registry Editor. 9. Restart your computer. For steps 4 through 7: If the "DependOnService" value already exists and has an entry, you can add another by double-clicking the value and entering it on a new line for LanmanServer.
