The connection to our printers allows us to physically capture everything we do on our computers, this ranges from text to graphics and other objects, but in some cases when trying to establish the connection with the printer we find the error 0x00000bc4 with the legend " No printer found." This prevents working with our files and one of the causes of the error is when a third-party printer driver or service has a direct impact on the use of our printer..
