Configuring the Print Server through the Registry

Windows CE .NET

You can use the registry to configure various settings for your print server. For example, you can use the registry to create a print spooler file on a local hard drive to improve network printing performance.

The following example creates a print spooler file on a local hard drive to ensure better network printing performance, especially with older operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft Windows 98. The PrintSwapMax value specifies the maximum size, in bytes, of the swap file. The PrintSwapInc value specifies the size, in bytes, of each increment to the file's size.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Services\SMBServer]
  "PrintSwapFile"="\\Hard Disk\\Spooler.file"
  "PrintSwapMax"=dword:A00000
  "PrintSwapInc"=dword:5000
