Print Spooler stops on TS / Citrix

If your print spooler on your TS / Citrix server stops all the time
you are probably having problem with a printer driver.
Start with trying to remove tha last printer driver that you installed on the server.
Go to Printers and Faxes and choose Server Properties and the Drivers tabb remove the last driver
that you added to your system.
But if the spooler stops right away after you have started it you have a problem doing it
that way.

Then you need to download and install the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools from
http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en
After you have installed it you need to run Spooler Cleaner utility (cleanspl.exe)

After you are done cleaning restart your server.
Then it’s time to start installing the drivers again.
Check with your printer manufactor if thay have any drivers that are supported in TS / Citrix.
Good Luck!
