PrintBrmUi.exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!


    Today we changed the IPaddresses on all printers.When we are not running Active Directory, this had to be changed manually on 120 +computers.
    I used C:\Windows\System32\PrintBrmUi.exe on my own computer to make a .printerExport file (Windows 7Ultimate)but on the client machines(Windows 7Home Premium) so I got the message that C:\Windows\System32\PrintBrmUi.exe not existed?

    Is not C:\Windows\System32\PrintBrmUi.exe  it installed in windows by default?

  • Hi

    Have you looked inside c\windows\system32\spool\tools ?

    You could also run a search from command prompt if you browse to the C: root and them run this command "Dir /s PrintBrmUI.exe"

    Kind Regards

  • Ok.. I did a search after PrintBrmUI.exe and found it in C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-p..ting-tools-printbrm_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_83c1925fa396acd5

  • Hi,

    PrintBrmUI.exe should be locate at inside C:\Windows\System32. If you want to find out this file, please try to open Start-> In search bar type PrintBrmUI.

    As you mentioned that you found it in Winsxs directory, you should understand that WinSxS folder stores the shared components of side-by-side applications, is Windows native assembly cache. So that’s why you can’t open it.

  • Hi,

    I would like suggest you try to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files.
