Welcome to the MSDN Forum.
How many printers are installed in that machine? And what is the code for change the default printer? Please provide more details such as this.
On the other hand, if there are serveral printers in the machine, you can try to reinstall them all again. Or reinstall the OS and add the printers.
I hope this well be helpful.

Miilions of apologizes for late reach due to some problems, and thanks for your welcome...
Code is below to change default printer (we are using-Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.dll NET v9)
DeviceLine = PrinterName & "," & DriverName & "," & PrinterPort
Call WriteProfileString("windows", "Device", DeviceLine)
Call SendMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, WM_WININICHANGE, 0, "windows")
this results with a message PRINTER ERROR 0.
What is strange other users are not facing this problem in the same network-same printer (may be due different OS or versions of OS).
Thanks a lot.
