    Further to Previous Thread re "Function Discovery Print Provider Dll s


    I have a Printer Epson Stylus S20 been standing for several years, as a printer it has a use for my son's laptop. to print his Repetitive lists, being severely autistic. A scanner would treble the quantity all the same, as a work of art, that would have mostly to be burnt eventually.
    Having down loaded the latest driver. I can see that the Inks read Full on colour and about 90% on Black and I have further stocks. I am expecting to encounter ink flow problems , but I cannot even change the inks but get the FDPP Dll message and Windows fails to find a solution.
    Nearly a year ago - The Forum considered this problem and solved for some.

    Nearly a year ago - The solution seemed to be supplied by hTconeM9user As below
    Try this fix- Hope it works

    Click Start, This I had done and into Cortana
    Search for cmd.exe Typed cmd.exe
    Click on Run as Administrator Run as Administrator?This gets permission screen Then administrator command prompt screen C:\windows\system32>
    Type C:\ This gets C:\ is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable file or batch file
    Typing just C: Press Enter.gets C:\windows\system32>
    Here I have stopped for the time being=============================================

    I can recognise this as MS dos we used about 30years ago
    Type CD\Windows\System32\Spool
    Press Enter.
    Type Cacls.exe PRINTERS /e /g users:C
    Press Enter.
    Restart the computer
    As there is a reference to System 32 and not presumably the 64bit reference can I:-
    Use the above on a W10 64bit PC, without affecting my existing Epson XP-412 Scanner printer? This transferred across when I bought the latest PC from W.7. to W.10.
    Or is there anything that refers to a 64bit instruction in the Command its \the system 32\ that worries me?
    Can I use a 32bit Printer on a 64 bit PC?

    I have gone a little further into the problem, It is possible that System 32 is a microsoft sin bin. however The relevant information is that Calcs.exe should be Icalcs.exe . see the copy of my attempt so far, made just in case I mess up my PC I will know just what I did.

    C:\windows\system32\spool>Cacls.exe PRINTERS /e/g users:C (should be Cacls) (CACLS) ..............................................exe-space-PRINTERS-space-/e/g-space-users:C
    NOTE: Cacls is now depreciated, please use Icacls. (icacLs)
    Displays or modifies access control lists(ACLS) of files
    CACLS filename [/T] [/M [/L] [/S[:SDDL]] [/E] [/C] [/G usererm] [/R user [...]] [/P usererm [... ]] [/D] user [...]]
    Filename Displays ACLs.
    /T Changes ACLs of specified files in the current directory and all subdirectories.
    /L Work on the symbolic Link itself versus the target
    /M Changes ACLs of volumes mounted to a directory
    /S Displays the SDDL string for the DACL.
    /S:SDDL Replaces the ACLs with those specificied in the SDDL string (not valid with /E, /G, /R, /P, or /D).
    /E Edit ACL instead of replacing it.
    /C Continue on access denied errors.
    /G usererm Grant specified user access rights. Perm can be
    R Read - W Write - C Change (Write) - F Full control
    /R user Revoke specified users access rights (only valid with /E).
    /P usererm Replace specified users access rights. Perm can be
    N None R Read - W Write C Change (write) F Full control
    /D user Deny specified user access. Wildcards can be used to specify more than one user in a command.
    You can specify more than one user in a command.
    Abbreviations: C I Container Inherit. The Ace will be inherited by directories.
    O I - Object Inherit. The Ace will be inherited by files. I O Inherit Only. The ACE does not apply
    to the current file/directory. I D- inherited. The ACE was inherited from the parent directorys ACL
    C:\Windows\System32\spool.
    I have done a restart and it's still the same message. I have given up on the project now and will get a replacement. Job Done already. Good luck to readers. I am defeated. by software. If you can crack the puzzle let me know. Out of interest to the website why have you put the Yuks emojies on the ()erm words. it was copied exactly from Windows Administrator warts and all. Have a colon on me as an emojie : in front of a perm
