I have Windows XP and I am trying to install a Brother MFC-240C printer. Half way through installation I get a 0x80040707 DLL function call crashed: BRADDPRT.checklocalport error.
When I access my print/fax option from the control panel, there is nothing there. If I select add printer, I get an operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running error.
I have went into services under the adminstrative panel and made sure the print spooler was set to automatic which it is, I also tried to start it on my own and I would get an Error: 1068 The dependency service or group failed to start.
I also received a spooler error a couple months ago when trying to install WinFax Pro.
I have had a brother printer on this PC a few months ago and it worked just fine.
Could someone please help me with this...
