Fix: Operation Could Not Be Completed Error 0x00000bc4 No Printers Were Found
If you try to add a network printer in Windows from a print server, you may receive an error message. Check if you can browse to the printer by IP address (\\10.x.x.x\10.x.x.x.) instead of a UNC name (\\printserver\printer). If you can browse by IP address and not the UNC path, offload the print rendering to the client.
- On the print server, stop the print spooler service.
- Next, delete the following registry key.
- Reboot the server.
