  • Add SYSGEN_USB_PRINTER in the catalog item of your OSDesign.Then build the new OS,before downloading verify printer related registry entries are there in the reginit.ini file.

  • You can check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\Active to see if the driver is loaded.

  • Hi Mrudula,

    As Prabhu mentioned you have to check whether it is there are not in the reginit.ini file. This file can be found by following method

    1. Go to build menu click on Open Release Directory in Build Window

    2. A CMD prompt pops up

    3. type start., It opens your OS Design folder

    4. Search for reginit.ini

    I believe after adding SYSGEN_USB_PRINTER, you did either Sysgen or Clean Sysgen

    Is your Target supports USB Host Mode?

    Thank You & Regards,

  • One of the most common reasons that a printer doesn't show up in Windows CE (assuming that the driver is included in the OS) is that the printer is not a PCL compatible printer.   It is not safe to assume that all HP printers are PCL printers, they are not.

  • Dear sir

    Now I am getting this.

    In Windows CE 6.0 CEPC image, I selected usb printer driver from the
    catalog.  Also added sysgen_printing and sysgen_pcl variables to
    configuration environment.

    On attaching HP Laser p1007Laser Printer, I find it attached to LPT1
    port.  When I try to print from the Wordpad, the following devices
    appear under available devices:
    1. HP P1007LaserJet
    2. PCL InkJet
    3. PCL Laser

    Whatever device I select, and LPT under port number, the dialog of
    "now printing the document" appears for few seconds and then
    disappears.  Nothing is really printed.
