Printer does not show in list of Control Panel Printers


  • I am using Windows 7 RC 32 Bit. I have an HP Laserjet 4100 attached via an lpt port. Windows automatically recognized and installed a printer driver. I can find and print to this printer in my applications. However in the Control Panel "Devices and Printers" it does not show up. Any advice how to get Control Panel to show this printer?

  • Is your print spooler service started and set to automatic? Sometimes that actually prevents the printer from showing up for some reason.
