    Default Printer Ports disappearing on Network Win 8 machines

    Hi, boys and girls

    let's directly to the point. I have annoyed by my printer port for a few months. many times the printer ports disappear and they can't print when a user logs into any of our machines.
    If I restart it, it seems to fix it, or reboot sometimes it will fix it.

    I have loaded the newest drivers I can get for the printers and turned off the Print services under Windows 8 features. but there is no change about this situation. i never encountered the same problem in windows 7.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this? of course, if you can come up with the solutions is much better. many thanks in advance.

    hi guys,

    Windows 7 Pro 64 bit is still running on my computer adn hope this information might helps.

    The only way we were able to fix the problem was to move all the printers to a Windows 2008 R2 Server box. This resolved the compatibility issues with Windows 7. No matter what we tried, we could not get them to work properly in Win 7 coming from a Win2k3 server.
