The Printing Process


The Printing Process

The local printing process happens as follows:

  1. The user prints from within an application.
  2. The application contacts the GDI.
  3. The GDI contacts the print driver for printer-specific information, renders the job, and delivers the job to the print spooler.
  4. The client-side of the spooler contacts the server-side spooler.
  5. The server-side spooler contacts the print router.
  6. The print router sends the print job to the local print provider.
  7. The local print provider polls the print processors to find one that can process the type of data that is contained in the print job and then sends the job to the appropriate print processor.
  8. The print processor contacts the GDI to further render the job if required to make it print properly.
  9. The print processor sends the job to the page separator processor, where a separator page is added if required.
  10. The print job is then sent to the appropriate port monitor, which ultimately delivers the job to the printer.

In local printing, the client server and print server are the same computer. Printing processes differentiate between client-side and server-side components, regardless of whether printing is local or remote.

The remote printing process is same as the local printing process, except for the need to forward the print job across the network to the print server in the middle of the process. The following steps outline the remote printing process:

  1. The user prints from within an application.
  2. The application contacts the GDI.
  3. The GDI contacts the print driver for printer-specific information, renders the job, and delivers the job to the print spooler.
  4. The client-side of the spooler contacts the server-side spooler.
  5. The server-side spooler contacts the print router.
  6. The print router locates a remote print provider that can forward the job to the appropriate print server and transfers the job to the remote print provider.
  7. The remote print provider forwards the job across the network to the remote print server, where the local print provider receives it.
  8. The local print provider polls the print processors to find one that can process the type of data that is contained in the print job and sends the job to the appropriate print processor.
  9. The print processor contacts the GDI to further render the job if required to make it print properly.
  10. The print processor sends the job to the page separator processor, in which a separator page is added if required.
  11. The job is then sent to the appropriate port monitor, which ultimately delivers the job to the printer.

The Add Printer Wizard does not detect Bluetooth or wireless printer in Windows Vista.

Windows Vista provides fast and easy to use, share, and manage information on your computer. It also provides the Add Printer Wizard tool to add the network, wireless, or Bluetooth printer which is directly connected to your computer. Sometimes, the Add Printer Wizard does not detect Bluetooth or wireless printer.

To resolve the problem:

  1. Make sure that the Bluetooth adapter is plugged into the computer and turned on.
  2. Make sure that the Bluetooth printer is also turned on.
  3. Remove the connection to Bluetooth printer, and then try again to detect it using the Add Printer Wizard.

Cannot Use Network Printer If Your Password Is Not Saved

This problem can occur if you did not check the Remember my password check box when you initially provided your credentials to connect to the printer. The spooler will not prompt you to provide alternate credentials again. When authentication fails with the credentials you used to log on, an error is generated

To work around this problem, click to select the Remember my password check box when you initially connect to the printer so the credential manager will save the proper user name and password to connect to the resource. If you have already set up the printer, delete the printer, and then reconnect to it to receive the prompt again
