A family member has a really old printer... so old, that no x64 drivers are available for it. Unfortunately, they're adamant about using the device, since it can still print and is fairly cheap in toner usage and replacement.
I've manged to get the printer to work by installing VirtualBox with a 32b version of Windows 7 along with a Ghost Script printer which "copies" everything to the old printer and is network shared. Essentially the Windows 10 host system has a small 32-bit virtualized OS which can connect to the printer using proper drivers, and has a generic x64-compatible printer shared via a private network with the host.
Unfortunately it seems a recent security update to Windows 10 broke this completely. The shared printer, despite being detected as working would not print, throwing generic errors. When removed and added back I get a 0x00000709 error.
From what I read the issue is squarely with the recent "fix" to security vulnerabilities (KB5005565). Unfortunately, this "fix" seems less of a fix and more of a "disable everything, let people worry about stuff themselves". Yeah... not ideal.
So... I have an old, working printer hooked up to a 32-bit Windows 7 which then shares this printer (via some GS-magic) to the target device... except printer sharing seems to have been broken.
How can I get this to work again?
