This past week there has been some issues printing to a shared printer. This seems to be caused by an update that was pushed out by Microsoft around the middle of September. The most common error seen is 0x0000011b (Unable to Connect to Printer)

To resolve this, you will need to go to Control Panel > Program and Features > View Installed Updates on the machine that is sharing the printer. Next, find the KB by typing KB500 in the search on the top right, then right click and uninstall the update. Below are the KB numbers that you need:

  • KB5005030 - Windows Server 2019
  • KB5005573 - Windows Server 2016
  • KB5005613, KB5005627 - Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1
  • KB5005563 - Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 (who has an Extended Security Updates subscription for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2)
If the machine sharing the printer is a Windows 10 machine, then please look at this thread for the KB #
