One of our machines has lost the Microsoft Print to PDF and Microsoft XPS Document Writer. I have tried the following remedies to fix this issues but nothing seems to work:
Reinstall Microsoft Print to PDF using “Windows Features” (fails with 0x7 code if print spooler is active, completes if print spooler is stopped)
Microsoft Print to PDF
Microsoft XPS Document Writer
Reinstall Microsoft Print to PDF Using Devices and Printers, Add Printer (fails with element not found error when selecting driver and next)
Reinstall Microsoft Print to PDF Using DISM
repair install windows keeping apps & files
tried running sfc /scannow & all dsim tools
Any other ideas on how to resolve this issue or do I just need to format the disk and reinstall from scratch?
PS: Windows 10 Pro is the latest 20H2 version from Oct 2020. Not sure when these printers disappeared. They aren't used too often on this system.
