Unable to print after installing MOSS 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work on Windows Server 2003. After installing MOSS 2007, applications such as Excel 2007, Outlook 2007 and Adobe Reader 9 failed to detect printers. I tried re-installing them, but it did not worked. Our technical support team says it is due to MOSS 2007. I am not sure what is the exact reason. How can this be fixed?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I'm a bit confused by your post.

    I presume that you have installed MOSS 2007 on a server running Windows Server 2003 and that you now are having problems with your client system running something else. In that case it would seem far-fetched to blame the problems you are having with MOSS 2007.

    The only possible explanation seems to be that you have installed MOSS 2007 on a client system running Windows Server 2003 and that you are now having problems doing these things with that client system. However surely MOSS 2007 is not a suitable addition to a normal client system even if it is running Windows Server.

    MOSS 2007 is a big system that should be installed on servers (typical serverS not server) running nothing else. If you have installed MOSS 2007 on your client PC, you should *in addition* get yourself a new client PC and use the old client PC only for MOSS 2007.

  • Thanks for your reply.

    It is a development system which has installed MOSS 2007 running Windows Server 2003.

    On uninstalling the MOSS 2007, affected applications started working, but on re-installing the MOSS 2007, problem re-occurred.

    Do you have any solution specific to my case.
