When trying to print to a networked printer (for example: \\server\myprinter) through an ASP or ASP.NET application, the following error message appears:
"The printer could not be found in the current security context".
Your local printers are operating correctly but the error message persists even after following the steps in Microsoft's knowledge base article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;184291.
- Set up your IIS Web Application to run under a domain account that has the network printer installed.
- Configure the Windows Service(s) relevant to your application to run under that domain account. This has the affect of loading the printer information at run-time. If you are using the Report Application Server SDK, change the properties of the RAS Service; if you use the Business Objects Enterprise SDK, change the properties of the Page Server and Cache Server if viewing on demand, or the Job Server if scheduling.
