Default Vlite Vista, No print spooler, no printers! - 12-18-2008, 04:09 PM

I vlited my Vista Ultimate didn't do much more than deleting the drivers and slipstreaming SP1 I even kept a few things I wouldn't have because my first and second tries left me without a network and sharing control panel. I was even able to get it to a decent 3.5 gb load after first setup. Now I realize I have no Print Spooler or the ability to add a printer. I don't know if this was from removing all the printer drivers or something else.

I was able to hack the print spooler service into services, but now I still cannot add a printer and the spooler crashes every so often.

Has anybody else experienced this issue.

Thanks in Advance.

I haven't experience this issue, but have had some issues with Vlite.. I took out the Microsoft Jet DB stuff.. which it turns out some of the programs I use need.. and even though I've registered the correct DLL's, Vista doesn't see JET as being registered on mini, so I have to rebuild my Vlite image with it included and reinstall.

You might have to do the same
