If you own a printer then I would like to introduce you to the new Ipp Printer Windows Management Application (WP) – (Integrated Platform for Windows). This application was designed by Microsoft in collaboration with HP to support printer and servers. The tool is meant to make it easier for the users to connect to and control the HP printer server. To take full advantage of this platform, you need to use a specific version of Windows – namely, Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2020. There are versions of Windows NT that run on both x86 and x64 architectures.
There are many different versions of printers in the market and users would want to take advantage of all these features including ink cartridges, ink jams, firmware updates, firmware backups and many more. Because of this, the latest versions of printers require Windows to access the management features and the network connection and connecting to printer server can prove to be a hassle. And that is where the Application fails to connect to the printer server. Most of the time you will notice a blue error message similar to the following:
The very reason why this error message is displayed is because the application did not find any printing related files on the host PC. So, to access the management features of printer you need to install the Wireless Print Driver on the host PC. Once the driver is installed you can then connect to the network using the Microsoft Ipp Printer Windows Management Application (WP) and start printing without the fear of the platform not connecting to the printer server.
