Problem: Error 0x000006d1 when printing in Windows 8/10


You are getting error 0x000006d1 when connecting to a printer via Windows 8/10 or Windows server 2016. Connections via Windows 7 are without any error.


The following Registry Entry should fix the problem:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers]

Or you can just apply a GPO:
With GPEdit: Computerconfiguration / administrative templates (Administr. Vorlagen) / Printer
The Setting “Druckaufträge auf dem Server immer wiedergeben”/“Always render printer jobs on the server” -> deaktivate

If you set this on the system it should work after a restart with the printer.
