Hi,

Just thought I would share this with the team. My network specialist has been
fighting a Spool32 network printing error for sometime now. This is on Win95,
Win98, and Win-Me OS's on the workstations.

Finally the fix seems to be to go into the Printer-Properties. Set the print to
print directly to the printer and set for RAW. Then in the Win.ini file add this
line to the top of it:
RUN=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Spool32.exe

In this way the spooler is loaded once upon bootup in a clean OS.

All our printing issues vanished with this workstation fix.
