Print Driver Host For 32bit Applications Has Stopped Working


Hi. To resolve the issue of Print driver host for 32bit applications has stopped working, first click on tools, program preferences, program options and then mark the option to keep the editor running in the background always. Then, restart the machine. Alternatively, select the start menu and type services.msc in the search box and select enter. Next, click on the printer spooler twice and then select stop followed by OK. Then, select start and in the search box type the command for displaying the spool printers and then press enter. If at all there are any files present in this folder, delete them. Then, again click on start, type services.MSC and click on enter. This should be followed by a click on the printer spooler option from the list of services twice. Next, click on start and select automatic and click on OK.


The third way can first uninstall the printers if there are any installed on the PC by clicking on start, devices and printers, find the printer, right-click on it and then select the option to remove it. Next, install the printer back on by selecting the option to add the printer in the devices and printers window which appears. From the window, select the option to add a local printer and then create a new port by selecting a TCP/IP port from the menu.

Type the hostname and IP address of the printer and then click on next. To gather a list of printer drivers from MS after they have been updated, select the Windows update option and then find the printer from the list to continue with the installation process.

Hope we helped.
