    Adding Microsoft Office Document Image Writer Printer back after being removed.

    I have got 2 solutions for the issue discussed in the title:

    The first solution is to type the below into a command prompt window with admin priviledges:

    cscript c:\windows\system32\prnmngr.vbs -a -p "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer" -m "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer Driver" - r "Microsoft Document Imaging Writer Port:"

    The Second solution is written below in details:
    1. First of all you need to close all running applications. If you got any Office application that is running, then the driver will not be installed properly.
    2. After that you need to go to the "Control Panel" and "Add or Remove Programs".
    3. Now you have to click on"Microsoft Office 2003" and then click on "Change".
    4. After that you need to check "Add or Remove Features" and click "Next".
    5. Now check on the bottom of the page check "Choose advanced customization of applications." and click "Next".
    6. After that check under Microsoft Office click on the + sign in front of "Office Tools"
    7. Now you have to find "Microsoft Office Document Imaging", click the icon and select "Not Available".
    8. After that you need to click on "Update". This will uninstall the MODI driver.
    9. You can try to repeat steps 1 to 6 to go back to the same location you were before.
    10. Now you have to find the object "Microsoft Office Document Imaging", click the icon and select "Run from My Computer".
    11. All you need to do is just click on "Update" and all will be done.

    There is also a 3rd solution for this issue that I have found:
    1. First of all go to Control panel - Printer and fax
    2. After that you need to add Printer - select local printer attached (Unselect detect Plug N Play)
    3. Now check in the port option select Microsoft Document Image Printer Writer Port
    4. After that you need to select and install a generic manufacturer and use text only printer.
    5. Now you can try to right-click on the generic text/only printer driver and select properties.
    6. After that you need to click on ports and select "soft Office Document Imaging Driver Port".
    7. Now you have to click on the advanced tab and change the driver to Microsoft Office Document Image Writer.
    8. Lastly you need to click on apply and press OK.
