You can change the default printer spool directory for all printers or the printer spool directory for specific printers. To change the default printer spool directory for all printers add the following value:



* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers


* Value Name: DefaultSpoolDirectory


* Data Type: REG_SZ


* String: full path to printer spool directory



To change the default printer spool directory for specific printers add the following value:



* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\


* Value Name: SpoolDirectory


* Data Type: REG_SZ


* String: full path to printer spool directory



You must make sure that the path specified actually exists. If it does not exist, Windows NT uses the default spool directory.
