Hi.

I added a TCP/IP printer port for a Savin 2515 on my Win2k3 server. I
decided to use IPP printing instead for this printer and now i cannot
delete the printer now that i have deleted its port.

The error it is returning doesn't tell me much....

"Printer cannot be removed. Operation cannot be completed."

Please help.

Thanks.

Try stopping the printer spooler and ensure there was nothing in the print
queue.
