Manually Uninstalling the Printer Drivers

 

If the printer driver needs to be uninstalled, it should be uninstalled from Control Panel > Add/Remove programs, or programmatically as outlined in the Uninstall Dll() section.

 

However in certain cases one may need to uninstall the printer driver manually from the system. This section outlines the steps necessary to uninstall Black Ice Printer Drivers.

 

·                                 Remove Black Ice printer from the Printers

Delete files from the spool folder

 

The following example will demonstrate how to uninstall manually the ColorPlus printer driver completely. In some cases it is possible that some files or registry entries mentioned in this document cannot be found on the computer because they are already removed by a failed uninstall attempt or damage to the file system or registry.

 

The process is similar to all other printer drivers and operating systems. Special notes will indicate if the steps differ on different types of printer drivers (Monochrome, PDF etc.) on 64 bit or on terminal servers.

 

Removing the printer

On XP and 2003: Go to Start > Printers and Faxes, right-click the Black Ice printer, and select Delete.

On Windows 10/8/7 and 2016/2012/2008: Go to Start(Settings on Windows 10 / 8/2012/2016)/Devices and Printers on Windows 7, right-click the Black Ice printer and select “Remove this device”.

The OEM printer names can be one of the following, depending on which driver you installed:

 

Black Ice TIFF

    Manually Uninstalling the X1 Printer Drivers

     

    If the printer driver needs to be uninstalled, it should be uninstalled from Control Panel > Add/Remove programs, or programmatically as outlined in the Uninstall Dll() section.

     

    However in certain cases one may need to uninstall the printer driver manually from the system. This section outlines the steps necessary to uninstall Black Ice Printer Drivers.

     

    ·                                 Remove Black Ice printer from the Printers

    Delete files from the spool folder

     

    The following example will demonstrate how to uninstall manually the ColorPlus X1 printer driver.

    The process is similar to all other printer drivers and operating systems. Special notes will indicate if the steps differ on different types of printer drivers (Monochrome, PDF etc.) on 64 bit or on terminal Servers.

     

    Removing the printer

    On XP and 2003: Go to Start > Printers and Faxes, right-click the Black Ice printer, and select Delete.

    On Windows 10/8/7 and 2016/2012/2008: Go to Start(Settings on Windows 10, 8/2012/2016)/Devices and Printers on Windows 7, right-click the Black Ice printer and select “Remove this device”.

    The OEM printer names can be one of the following, depending on which driver you installed:

     

    Black Ice TIFF X1

    Black Ice TIFF X1(Demo)

    Black Ice TIFF X1 Server

    Black Ice TIFF X1 Server (Demo)

     

    Black Ice ColorPlus X1

    Black Ice ColorPlus X1 (Demo)

    Black Ice ColorPlus X1 Server

    Black Ice ColorPlus X1 Server (Demo)

     

    Black Ice PDF X1

    Black Ice PDF X1 (Demo)

    Black Ice PDF X1 Server

    Black Ice PDF X1 Server (Demo)

    Restart the spooler.

     

    Start > Run… or Start>Search program and files in Windows 7

    Type cmd (Command prompt must be run in Administrator mode in Windows 7 or later)

     

    Type net stop spooler and hit enter 

    Type net start spooler and hit enter

    If you get an “Access denied” message reboot the computer, and try it again.

     

    Removing the driver and port from the Print Server

    Printer Driver port names are the following:

    Printer Driver Name

    Port name

    ColorPlus X1

    IcePortAUR

    ColorPlus X1 Server

    IcePortTSAUR

    PDF X1

    IcePortPUR

    PDF X1 Server

    IcePortTSPUR

    Monochrome X1

    IcePortMUR

    Monochrome X1 Server

    IcePortTSMUR

     

    In case of Printer Driver Demo installation the end of the port name is ‘D’ instead of ‘R’. For example ‘IcePortAUD’ is the port name of ColorPlus Demo printer diver.

     On XP and 2003

    1.    Go to Start->Printers and Faxes.

    2.    Right-click on an empty area, select “Server Properties”.

    On Windows 10/8/7 and 2016/2012/2008:

    1.    Go to Start (Go to Settings on Windows 10, 8/2012/2016)->Devices and Printers.

    2.    Select a printer. Print Server properties button will appear on the menu bar. Click on “Print Server Properties”.

    3.    Go to the port tab and delete the Iceport (An access denied warning might come up. Hit OK, the when the registry keys are deleted in the next step, and the spooler is restarted the port will be deleted)
