Im at a complete loss on how to fix this.

Cannot print to local or network printers, however can print to software printers like pdf and flashpaper and the
microsoft xps.

Have tried deleting bud files, reinstalling print spooler. Cant find anything on google.

It has happened on 5 - 6 computers, error message contains "failed to print".

began happening last week after the huge lot of windows updates.

Any ideas?

So this problem is only with printing .bud files, or only with Quicken?
Is that why you deleted the .bud files? In that case, you might try
Quicken online support. If you get this error with any software, it
could be an XP problem.. In that case, look at this Google Groups
search results:

You can narrow the search more by adding "Quicken" if this problem is
only in that program.

This problem has nothing to do with quicken. It is anything printing to a local or network printer with the exception of software printers like adobe pdf and flashpaper. Please
refer to original post.

And you dont print .bud files!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bud files are binary printer description files which are used to increase spooler efficiency for the respective printer drivers.

Then you should have given that description of .bud files rather than
direct the query by Gordon to a Google search that mentioned Quicken
BackUp Disks prominently in three of the first six posts.

Sorry I assumed people knew what they were talking about here.
And the first result in google says what bud files are.
Maybe I should have been more clear, but when I posted I thought i was clear enough.


Anyway I fixed this today:


It obviously occurs as a result of last weeks windows updates.

Seems to be a conflict in hp stuff.
Reinstalling drivers will not work.

I got it working by
stopping the spooler

and deleting the printing processors (those other than the virtual/software printers). Removing the drivers will not remove the print processors.

and then restarting the spooler

Also remove the drivers is recommended too followed by reinstalling, though the problem is specifically related to the print processors - in my case specifically HP.

Thanks for the report, and I'm glad you worked it out.
