Re: Another computer is using the printer

I've looked through a numer of 'solutions' to this problem, on this website and also on Microsoft and other places, non have yet provided a definitive solution. Canon should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this issue to go unresolved for so long. I for one, will never be buying Canon again.

Re: Another computer is using the printer

Open elevated cmd prompt (as administrator)

copy & paste as below

 

1 enter:      <net stop spooler>

 

2 enter:        <del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\* /Q>

 

3 enter         <net start spooler>

 

should work on all printers.

Re: Another computer is using the printer

I tried this fix multiple times and it still gave me the "Another computer is using this printer." message.
I was really hoping that was the magic bullet.
