0x0000006 Error when added network printer

A fix if you come across these error messages when adding a network printer. You may receive an error that says, “Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation failed with error 0x00000006.”
0x00000006
If you try again you may get an error that says, “Windows cannot connect to the printer. no printers were found.”
no printers
To resolve this issue open regedit & browse to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Providers. Just to be safe make a backup of the Client Side Rendering Print Providers key. Then delete the Client Side Rendering Print Providers key. Close regedit. Go to Services and restart the Print Spooler service. Now try adding the printer again & you should not get an error.
