What should a dependency service or institution be and how do I set it up?

    Why do I get an error 2 when trying to print?

    The system cannot find the entire specified file. Error 2 means that the specified file was not found. In the case of the print spooler service, the exact “file specified” is probably the missing file: c:windowssystem32spoolsv.exe

    Hi SimoneJ,

    Try replacing the spoolsv.exe file, which may be located in C:windowssystem32, with C:WINDOWSServicePackFilesi386.

    Running the print spooler from the print service (Start->Run->services.msc->Print Spooler).

    I hope this helps.
