NETWORK PRINTER ( Access Denied ) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I AM RUNNING 8.1 on a laptop. When I try to print to a network printer name is SERVER, I receive the message Access Denied. I can print to another network printer and it works  ok.

    I changed the server name to SERVER_CME and it works ok. I guess SERVER is a reserved word starting with window 8. Does anyone know of a work around for this? I know this is not the correct site, sorry about that, I am 72 years old and sometimes I get lost.

  • I don't think that name should be a reserved name problem.

    I'd probably ask them over here.

    Hi,

    I am afraid that this is not the proper forum for this issue, since this forum is to discuss Visual Basic.

    I am moving your question to the moderator forum ("Where is the forum for..?").
    The owner of the forum will direct you to a right forum.

    The following forum may be helpful.

    Thanks for your understanding.
