    I jumped the gun while installing a connection to my HP LaserJet 1200
    attached to a TCP/IP print server. I have the printer working now, but I
    get an error deleting printer when I try to get rid of the driver instance
    associated with the incorrect Standard TCP/IP Port. Can't delete the port
    (says resource is in use) and I can't delet the driver. Restart does not
    help. Anyone got a clue on wheter there's a registry entry that can be
    whackeed to get rid of it. I can live with it, but like lots of us, I'm a
    stickler, and I'd be happiest with it gone.

    Any clues would be welcome.

    Duhpppp... Easy answer - delete pending print job, resource in use is freed
    up, deletion procedes normally. Nothing like fighting the programmed
    behavior.

  3. I'd suggest you try that stuff running Windows in "safe mode".
