Add Printer Wizard starts to hang after installation of Dell/Lexmark printer
After you install Windows software provided with a Dell or
Lexmark printer, you cannot add more printers, because
Add Printer Wizard hangs.
Enabled LexBce Server service, with
%SystemRoot%\system32\LEXBCES.EXE residing in memory.
[WARNING! THE FOLLOWING WILL EDIT YOUR REGISTRY.
ALWAYS BACKUP REGISTRY BEFORE EDITING IT.]
Login with an account with administrative privileges.
Create a text file any_name.REG containing the following:
----- Copy seven lines below -----
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
----- End of copy -----
Double-click on this file and answer "Yes" to the prompt.
You may delete the file after that. Restart the computer.
This will let Printer Spooler service start without LexBce
Server service and will disable the latter.
If later you need to restore LexBce Server service, open
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services, LexBce
Server, and change Startup type to Automatic.
