- The Patch Tuesday releases are the genesis of all printing challenges encountered.
- Print connection issues are specific to servers, especially those in organizations and businesses.
- Microsoft has yet to find a fix for the highlighted challenge.
To this end, Windows updates always come with printer issues. There is no lasting solution to this problem yet.
After the release of Patch Tuesday a few weeks ago, Microsoft came out and gave a warning. It revolved around the known issue warnings on the support pages for updates KB5006674 and KBS5006670.
Microsoft highlights 0x000006e4 (RPC_S_CANNOT_SUPPORT), 0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL), and 0x00000709 (ERROR_INVALID_PRINTER_NAME) among the issues that users may experience after upgrading.
The Update KB5006674 causes many problems for Windows 11 users, however, Microsoft has announced that there are plans underway to address this whole situation. There are very few solutions to this problem, Microsoft has identified a plausible solution to this problem.
Users who update to Windows 11 may experience the following errors when trying to connect to a remote printer that shares a Windows print server:
- 0x000006e4 (RPC_S_CANNOT_SUPPORT)
- 0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL)
- 0x00000709 (ERROR_INVALID_PRINTER_NAME)
However, the printer connection issues highlighted are specific to print servers. Therefore, printers specifically designed for home use are not affected by this challenge. Printers used in businesses and organizations are most affected by this problem.
The many printing issues can be attributed to the same update, but they were resolved with later patch releases.
The KB5006670 update also affects Windows 10 users, thus subjecting them to the same issues. Microsoft has yet to find a plausible solution.
