Fix Error 0x0000000d While Trying to Share Home Group Printer In Windows

The following article will help you to fix the Error 0x0000000d when trying to share or when trying to connect to a shared printer on a network.

The error 0x0000000d applies only to sharing printer and other such sharring issues in Windows.

Follow the below mentioned steps to see if it works for you. Not both will work for you, but I know few have succeeded using one of the two methods here.

Method 1

Even though Microsoft Knowledge base states that this only applies to Windows vista, I still recommend you to try it for Windows 7. In my opinion, its better to try this out as its from the developer of the Operating System.

I would suggest you to try the steps from the following link and see if that help.


Error message when you try to install a network printer on a Windows Vista-based computer: "Windows cannot connect to the printer Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000000d)" (Applicable to windows 7)

Method 2
I would suggest you to see the steps from the following link to see if the printer is installed accordingly.

Install a printer on a home network


If the above steps fail, I would suggest you to disable all the antivirus and then try to install the printer.

Important: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you’re done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks. Also make sure that you have not set any parental controls on the computer.

The above steps should probable work to solve the Error 0x0000000d that may occue when to try to Share Home Group Printer In Windows.
