Print Management Console displays no printers after applying Windows Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 (KB2995388)

After installing optional Windows Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 (KB2995388) on a print server upgraded from Windows 2012 to Windows 2012 R2, the Print Management Console wouldn't display locally shared or remotely shared printers. Another print server
could see the printers on this server, but it couldn't see it's own. Removal of the patch resolved the issue.

Removal of the patch resolved the issue.
Thanks for sharing in the forum. Your time and efforts are highly appreciated.
On current situation, would you please let me confirm something more?
Please check if this update rollup package (KB2995388) install successfully.
Please run sfc /scannow command to scan all protected system files after installed this update.
If be possible, please re-install Print Server feature on the server after installed this update. Any find?
If any update, please feel free to let me know.
Hope this helps.
Best regards,
Justin Gu

  • Got Display driver via Windows Update for Windows 8.1 and try to use it for Windows Server 2012 R2

    Hi Everyone,
    the following driver cab is from Windows Update:!138&ithint=file,.cab&authkey=!APDi54-R1Ob5IWQ
    It includes this display driver:
    Intel(R) Q45/Q43 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)
    My problem is: I can't install this driver on Windows Server 2012 R2.
    I tried the following, nothing worked:
    a) pnputil -i -a
    b) Extract cab, update the device's driver in device manager, select "search for driver software in this location"
    c) copy the files in system32/, system32/drivers, syswow64/ from a Windows 8.1 system to a Windows Server 2012 R2 system
    Isn't it true that any Windows 8.1 driver should also work for Windows Server 2012 R2 (same os version)?
    Thanks for your replies.
    PS: I first posted my question here:

  • Customize Default Settings Printer Management Console

    Have published a Print Management Console to my help desk.  Excellent tool.  
    Need to enforce settings.  Right click Printers, select Add Printer want to only allow and force as default the setting "Add a TCP/IP or Web Services Printer be IP address or hostname", then once select "Next" want
    to force "Type of Device" with value of "TCP/IP Device" and have check box for "Auto detect the printer driver to use" deselected.  Would be nice to also have ability on the next screen, "Print Driver", to have
    "Use an existing printer driver on the computer" as the default option.

    Before going further, would you please provide more detailed information about your issue? It’s hard to provide you the troubleshooting idea with the limited information you posted.
    Thanks for your understanding.

  • After applying Security Update 2006-001 can't launch Office X apps

    I noticed that, after applying Security Update 2006-001, I can't launch Microsoft Word nor Excel nor Power Point (Office X, 10.1.6 updated). If I double click the app icon, select and try to open from File menu or try to launch it from the Dock, I get the message "The app has unexpectedly quit". This does not affect Entourage so far. I can open existing files double clicking on their icons and, once the app is running, create new files from menu bar. Repaired permissions, checked for corrupted preferences files or templates but to no avail.
    Can anybody help?

    DivX Doctor is a freeware I had downloaded a few days before applying Security Update 2006-01 ( It certainly was responsible for my problems with Office X apps because, as I said, they completely disappeared as soon as I got rid of it.
    I hadn't the memory problems you mentioned (I've applied also Security update 2006-02 without problems).

  • Can't change printer port on Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2

    1. Install "Lexmark X646e Class Driver" using a in-box print driver (i.e. one comes with the Windows installation base) .
    2. Go to "Printer properties" -> "Port"
    3. Select a custom monitor port, and the following error occurs in Event Viewer.
    An error occurred while configuring print queue 'Lexmark X646e Class Driver'. Printer driver 'Lexmark X646e Class Driver' may not be used in conjunction with a non-inbox port monitor.
    Same steps applied on Windows 8 and Server 2012, and not issues found. The restriction/limitation is newly added in Window 8.1 and Server 2012 R2. 
    Changing to a custom monitor port after printer driver installation is very important for us.
    How can we solve or workaround the above issue, so it can behave like Windows 8 and Server 2012? 

    What Port Monitor just so I can bubble this information to some others?
    Alan Morris Windows Printing Team
    Hi Alan:
    We developed a custom printing system, which involved the following configurations:
    1. Create a custom port monitor on server 2012 r2.
    2. Change an existing print queue to use this custom port monitor, and share this print queue.
    3. All workstations will print to this shared print queue on the server.
    The goal is to manage/monitor the print information in StartDocPort for all printing for instance.  This is what we've been doing for a long time.
    Now we upgraded our system from server 2012 to server 2012 R2, but we can't change the port monitor to our ones anymore.
    I've tried the Type3 printer driver, such as Brother Color Type3 Class Driver, unfortunately it didn't work if the installation is using "Add a printer", and select the driver from the list.   
    The only way to make it work is to install the printer driver using the one downloaded from the vendor's website, this will bypass Windows "Add a printer". 
    Is there any chance we can make this to behave like server 2012 or earlier? Modify registry keys?

  • Intel Matrix Storage Manager disables Windows Update and Windows Validation on Windows 7 64-bit

    I have a Lenovo ThinkPad R61 8918CTO on which I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit) on a new Seagate Momentus XT 750GB drive. The installation was trouble-free, as were all of the post-install Windows Updates.
    Then I installed ThinkVantage System Update 4.03 and used it to install most of the available Lenovo updates. Big mistake. I'll spare you a detailed account of the hours I wasted troubleshooting, rolling back to previous restore points, and doing more troubleshooting, but it turns out that installing Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver v. caused Windows Update and Windows Validation to fail.
    Symptoms: Windows Update control panel can't check for updates and reports that the Windows Update service isn't running when it actually is. Online Windows Validation fails and the standalone Windows Validation utility won't install. Microsoft programs that require a validated copy of Windows (e.g., Microsoft Security Essentials) won't install. 
    Solution: Roll back the driver for the relevant SATA controller to the previous driver.
    I've reinstalled ThinkVantage System Update 4.03 and hidden the proposed Intel Matrix Storage Manager update; since then, I've used it to complete my Lenovo updates without issue.
    I hope this post will help other people with this problem find the solution a lot faster than it took me!

    This happened after installing a new advanced format drive with 4k-byte sectors, I'd guess.  If the storage driver doesn't report the physical sector size to Windows, update fails.
    I just ran across this myself (again) putting Win 7 on a T400.
    I don't know why this is still going on.  It may be that the update lists for older machines still have pre-AF-drive drivers listed.
    FYI, another fix is going to the Intel site and installing the latest Matrix Storage Manager AHCI driver.  This may be more desirable than rolling back to an older driver in some cases.

    Hi K,
    Thank you for you reply and sorry if the information was a bit too truncated. well here goes.
    I am using a MacBook Pro (3.1) 17 inch, 2.4GHz processor, 2 GB ram. I edit video using Final Cut Studio 2. i am having a problem with Final Cut Pro 6 after downloading the latest update (6.0.3). Before I downloaded the update I used to be able to export my movies on the Quicktime option of FCP (not compressor or Quicktime conversion) giving me the option to view the the movie while in an FCP Project. The viewer used to scale the exported video to 16.9 (720 by 576 anamorphic), it no longer does this, instead playing it in 4.3. I have tried exporting both from the time line and the canvas but the viewer will only preview in 4.3. As I want to see it in 16.9 because that is what the movie was made in, captured and edited in. The original settings have not changed but there seems to be this annoying problem.
    I hope that is enough detail

    Hi mcclausky, you may need to manually remove a policy setting from the registry. You also should scan for malware that might have created this problem.
    This article lists scanning and cleaning tools other Firefox users have found helpful: [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware]].
    To check your Windows registry for policy settings that might affect Firefox or other programs, I suggest consulting a Windows forum or Microsoft's forums. For example:

  • After installed SP1 for SQL Server 2012, can no longer export to csv

    After installing SP1 today via Windows Update, I am no longer able to export data to csv using the SQL Server Import and Export wizard. I get the following error message:
    "Column information for the source and the destination data could not be retrieved, or the data types of source columns were not mapped correctly to those available on the destination provider."
    "Column "col1": Source data type "200" was not found in the data type mapping file."...
    (The above line repeats for each column)
    The work-around I have to do is to manually map each column in the "Edit Mappings..." option from the "Configure Flat File Destination" page of the wizard. This is an extreme inconvenience to have to have to edit the mappings and change
    each column to "string [DT_STR]" type from "byte stream [DT_BYTES]" type each time I want to export to csv. I did not have to do this before installing SP1; it worked perfectly for months with hundreds of exports prior to this update and
    no need to modify mapping.

    I am running Windows 7 64-bit, SQL Server 2012 Express edition. Again, just yesterday from Windows Update, I installed SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (KB2674319), followed by Update Rollup for SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (KB2793634). This situation was
    not occurring before these updates were installed, and I noticed it immediately after they were installed (and of course I restarted my computer after the updates).
    In SSMS I just now created a test DB and table to provide a step-by-step with screenshots.
    Here is the code I ran to create the test DB and table:
    USE testDB;
    CREATE TABLE testTable
    id int,
    lname varchar(50),
    fname varchar(50),
    address varchar(50),
    city varchar(50),
    state char(2),
    dob date
    (1,'Smith','Bob','123 Main St.','Los Angeles','CA','20080212'),
    (2,'Doe','John','555 Rainbow Ln.','Chicago','IL','19580530'),
    (3,'Jones','Jane','999 Somewhere Pl.','Washington','DC','19651201'),
    (4,'Jackson','George','111 Hello Cir.','Dallas','TX','20010718');
    SELECT * FROM testTable;
    Results look good:
    id    lname    fname    address    city    state    dob
    1    Smith    Bob    123 Main St.    Los Angeles    CA    2008-02-12
    2    Doe    John    555 Rainbow Ln.    Chicago    IL    1958-05-30
    3    Jones    Jane    999 Somewhere Pl.    Washington    DC    1965-12-01
    4    Jackson    George    111 Hello Cir.    Dallas    TX    2001-07-18
    In Object Explorer, I right-click on the [testDB] database, choose "Tasks", then "Export Data..." and the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard appears. I click Next to leave all settings as-is on the "Choose a Data Source" page, then on the "Choose a Destination"
    page, under the "Destination" drop-down I choose "Flat File Destination" then browse to the desktop and name the file "table_export.csv" then click Next. On the "Specify Table Copy or Query" page I choose "Write a query to specify the data to transfer" then
    click Next. I type the following SQL statement:
    SELECT * FROM testTable;
    When clicking the "Parse" button I get the message "This SQL statement is valid."
    On to the next page, "Configure Flat File Destination" I try leaving the defaults then click Next. This is where I am getting the error message (see screenshot below):
    Then going to the "Edit Mappings..." option on the "Configure Flat File Destination" page, I see that all columns which were defined as varchar in the table are showing as type "byte stream [DT_BYTES]", size "0", the state column which is defined as char(2)
    shows correctly however with type "string [DT_STR]", size "2" (see screenshow below):
    So what I have to do is change the type for the lname, fname, address and city columns to "string [DT_STR]", then I am able to proceed with the export successfully. Again, this just started happening after installing these updates. As you can imagine, this
    is very frustrating, as I do a lot of exports from many tables, with a lot more columns than this test table.
    Thanks for your help.
