Test page failed to print, Unable to create a print job.
Posted by Florin Morar on 28 October 2009 05:28 PM
If You go to the Properties page of the printer and press the Print Test Page button, and get the following message: "Test page failed to print. Would you like to view the prin troubleshooter for assistance? Unable to create a print job"

Assuming that the printer is working properly:

go to start>printer or start>control pan> printers


then file printer server
click advanced
and lets check the spool folder
default is C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS
see if anything is stuck in here?
if no please create a folder on the desktop name spoolertest

now lets relocate the spool folder

should look something like this
C:\Documents and Settings\BigBadWolF\Desktop\spoolertest
