Error 0X0000000d with network printer installation

Solution with Windows Vista:
  • Run a command prompt and type the following: net use LPT2: \\servername\printer
  • This sets up a behind-the-scenes connection to the printer.
  • Go through the add printer wizard, choose to add a local printer, and choose port LPT2.

Solution with Windows 7:
  • Go to start and type in "cmd" in the search box.
  •  Right click on cmd and select “Run as Administrator”.
  • Type this command net use LPT# \\server\printer /persistent:yes (Substitute #, server, printer as appropriate for your network.)
  • Add your printer locally using the LPT# port. If your laptop has no parallel cable then use LPT1.
