Using the Add Printer Wizard
The error message “Access is denied” happens while trying to print from a Windows Vista-based PC to a PC running Windows XP. Sometimes a printer needs to be added, but is not displayed in the Add Printer Wizard. The solution is simple; if the Wizard cannot detect a printer, then install it manually. When the Add Printer Wizard is used to connect a new printer, users might get the error message “Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running”. This error happens because the spooler service might have stopped or hasn’t started.
Add Printer Wizard does not detect a printer
This issue happens with an already installed printer or a new printer to be installed. Check whether the printer is switched on or not. If not, the printer is to be switched on. If the printer is switched on, check if the networking cable is properly plugged. Plug the networking cables properly if required. For a Bluetooth printer, check whether the mode set in it, makes the device accessible to all. If the printer is set to the invisible mode, make it visible. If the problem persists, it means the problem is with the computer software or hardware.
