Windows Server 2003 Web Edition and Printer Sharing

    When I try to share my Laser Jet Printer in Windows
    Server 2003 Web Edition I get a message that comes up
    saying "Printer settings could not be saved. Remote
    connedtions to the Print Spooler are blocked by a policy
    set on your machine."

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this? I have been trying
    now for days and I can't seem to find an answer. I have
    looking in Local Security Settings and I can't find
    anything there at all..

    Thanks =)

  2. The Print Spooler Service in not installed in the Web
    Edition of Windows Server 2003. I'm not sure if it is
    possible to install just that service. I tried for two
    weeks and gave up. I installed Windows Server 2003 Small
    Business Edition. I bought Web Edition thinking that it
    would be a low cost Home Networking Server, but without
    Printer Sharing, it is useless as a stand alone server.
    It appear to me made for setting up Web Farms.

    I have been searching for a tip on how to install Print
    Services, but have not found it yet.
