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

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

RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators

Value DWORD  0

 

You can delete it after adding the printer
