Sometimes things that seem so obvious aren’t. Earlier this week, I was trying to be cool and add a new network printer to a number of computers using a basic script. After a number of attempts at a test work station, I finally found a solution that I thought worked well. However, when attempting to remove some of my earlier failed attempts at adding the printer I encountered the following error ‘Printer connection cannot be removed. Operation could not be completed.’
What do you mean printer connection cannot be removed? I am the Administrator and therefore though shalt be removed.
Well apparently, the easiest way to resolve this problem is to:
- Disable your active network adapter or unplug the network cable
- Delete the printer that you were having trouble deleting
- Enable your active network adapter or reconnect the network cable
