We have been having an issue for the past 2 months where on all 4 of our Windows Server 2019 RDSH, the Microsoft Print to PDF feature stopped working along with other built in printers. At first we could not locate the issue, but some time later, after uninstalling the Windows updates, the feature started to work again.
Some things we have done...
-Uninstalled the printer and tried to reinstall. We are always presented with "Unable to install, Element not found".
-When clicking on the properties of the PDF printer, it mentions that the driver is not installed (although we believe it is). When going through the wizard to install the driver, we get the same error listed above.
-Performed a full reset and fresh windows install on the server. This works, until the Windows updates are installed, which breaks the printer again.
It almost seems like whatever is in this update is breaking any/all of the Type 4 printer drivers.
Does anyone know a fix for this issue? We would like to have the updates installed to stay up to date and safe, but the PDF printer is a must have.
