0x00000bcb Error Adding Network Printer Share Windows

If you have attempted to add a network printer by double clicking on the sharename name \\server\PrinterShareName, and you’re  getting 0x00000bcb error, it’s because of new new Windows Security Update.

Add the following registry key to the PC having the issue (not server).

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Printers\PointAndPrint

RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators

Value DWORD  0

 

You can delete it after adding the printer
