Thank you! Working like a charm.
Initial command results in success
Second command returns
[SC] StartService FAILED 2:
The system cannot find the file specified
Any ideas (by the way, the Firewall sees the AirPrint and it shows as auto started service dependant upon Bonjour)
Print to pdf
Anybody tried using any virtual printers like PDF creator or bullzip with AirPrint?
I have explained the problem here in this thread on the iPad forum
Have anybody succeeded in printing to PDF in windows at all?
This is a classic error message: not enough privileges
you are running the cmd.exe command prompt under the identity of a user who does not has the right to create a service.
Before typing the sc.exe commands, you need to open a command prompt with higher privileges.
This can be achieved by typing runas /user:[USER_WITH_HIGHERPRIVILEGES] cmd.exe
You will then be prompted for the user password.
Or, if you are running Windows Vista or 7, you can type cmd.exe right on the top of the Start icon, and then right-click on cmd.exe and select "Run as an administrator".
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the input. I have verified that the service does start when the PC is rebooted. My issue is that the printer isn't actually recognized by my iPhone and iPad unless I manually start the airprint.exe file, which then opens the cmd prompt and shows the IP connection log, etc., as I print. Without that program open, my printer doesn't show up. I don't believe I did anything wrong in setup, as I tried both the quick install and manual methods.
I was curious if I could "autostart" airprint.exe when my PC restarts, so I don't forget to start it manually. That's where I thought a script would be nice... Not sure if that's the answer or not.
can someone plese tell me how to remove airprint form my windows vista 64bit? each time i try to delete the AirPrint folder it says i need some permission to delete it... what permission? am the administrator and i dont have a password on the laptop...
works great Thank You
Thanks realeric for posting a solution to printing from iPad. This worked perfectly first time with my Windows XP PC and Brother printer. Unfortunately, as per tbolt's post, it has been getting less and less reliable and now most of the time the iPad doesn't find any printers. I have tried all the usual things (restarting both the PC and the iPad) and have also made sure the AirPrint service is started and the Bonjour service is running. WiFi network is fine also.
Any ideas as to why it could have stopped working or gone very intermittent? Is there an update to the AirPrint service exe available that might improve it?
Perhaps you need to stop the process first. Open task manager, go to process tab, look for AirPrint.exe, stop process.
Not working on a Domain (Work)
I have installed and started the service, can see the printers, but cannot get past the login screen on the iPad.
I am trying to use this at work, within a Domain. I have tried using my username/pswd, Guest, AirPrint and who knows how many other combinations. Every time I get 'invalid password...'.
Has anyone gotten this to work within a Domain ? If so, please let us know how.
The only way I've been able to get it to work on a domain is to put any users who need AirPrint capability in the Print Operators group on the domain. Not ideal, but I haven't found any other workaround.
Bummer. Thanks. I was trying to slip in under the wire.
I've sent a request to the network guy, but I suspect he will be unhappy. Oh well...
Our network guy obliged, and I am now a member of the print operators group.
Still no luck using my ID/pswd.
The message I get when trying to sign is says: Password required for "Dell Laser Printer xxxx @ mycomputername.co-name.local".
How exactly are you guys specifying your credentials?
I was specifying my username in DOMAIN\username format, and it was working for me. Try that. If your own computer is hosting the printer, it may be a good idea to restart the computer first (so the computer can refresh domain settings and realize that your user is a Print Operator).
Tried all of the above and then some, but still dead in the water. Our network guy will look into it, but it is at the bottom of his 'to do' list. He's just doing me a favor.
BTW, works fine at home on my iMac.

Sr guys i have big time trouble to make it work!
When i enter those two lines in the "cmd" i receive:
[sc]create service failed 1073:
[sc]start service failed 1056:
If i start airprint.exe i receive in the dos:
Listening for connections on 0.0.0.0:631...
Unable to remove "C:\DOCUME~1\DANILO~1.000\IMPOST~1\Temp\/cupslite/cupslite" - N
o such file or directory
XpdfPrint library version = 3.02.33
Dont't know what to do....
I have a canon MP600 wired via usb to a HP wifi laptop.
OS is windows 7.
I have, by using a PDF creator called CutePDF. It installs a "printer" driver you can use to send any document a converts it to PDF. The issue I had initially was that when printing from Windows the application asks for a name and destination folder for the PDF. But when I tried from the iPad it was not asking me for anything even though it was telling me the file got printed. Then I figured out the software was putting the new PDF file in the \Windows\Temp\cupslite folder with a number as a the name, which increases by one everytime you print a new file.
I created a shorcut to that folder and, voila, I can convert files from the iPad into PDF then bring them back to the iPad.
Just don't forget to share the CutePDF "printer" the same as with any other. My system is a Win7 x32 but I guess this should work with any other OS.
I hope this helps. Cheers.
Try deleting those quotes and retyping them. Rich text styled quotes dont work.
thanks for this!
