Devices and printers error from clean install

#1
My devices an printers gives this error each time I launch it

Faulting application name: DeviceDisplayObjectProvider.exe, version: 6.1.7000.0, time stamp: 0x4943197e
Faulting module name: DeviceDisplayObjectProvider.exe, version: 6.1.7000.0, time stamp: 0x4943197e
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000113ac
Faulting process id: 0xa94
Faulting application start time: 0x01c974ed34fc087d
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\system32\DeviceDisplayObjectProvider.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\DeviceDisplayObjectProvider.exe
Report Id: 755bfe4b-e0e0-11dd-91a5-00301bb532c8

The window comes up but nothing is listed. It did let me install a pinter that does work but the printer does not display, only when you go to print in an application then it shows up. Any help would be great.

are you sure you got a valid copy? no torrent and nothing?

What happens if you uninstall the printer?
 


#3
Nope it is from MSDN! build 7000 All patched up

I will have to figure out how to uninstall the printer as it does not show up when the Devices and Printers crashes. The crash did occur Before I installed the printer though, the very first time I launched devices and printers right after the clean install.

indeed you will need to uninstall and reinstall the printer. It sounds like a driver was installed incorrectly and needs to be reinstalled.

Update

removed the HP laserjet 4m+ printer but I still can not launch Devices and Printers with out getting the above error every time :( I got the above error before even installing the printer must be somthing else I might just try reinstallling and make sure nothing is plugged into any USB ports during the install and see if that makes a difference.

I have got the same problem. When I launch the device and printer I get an error Device Display Object Provider Has Stopped Functioning.

Also I could not safely remove hardware for my USB drive.

Anyone can help???

Same here it cant start. Green bar goes for ever and nothing happens. I can only access add device, add printer by clicking on "hardware and sound" in the address bar

Even though you got the ISO from MS are you sure the way you burnt the imagefile was ok ?
You mention even b4 you installed the printer so maybe the problem lies with the img file ?

Sirs,

I think I found a good solution.
I've tried everything, from reinstalling drivers to the bluetooth service trick, and nothing seemed to work for me.
So, after some research, I found a ie8-rereg.cmd that solved the problem. It seems that you need to re-register ole32.dll to solve the "Devices and Printers" and the "explorer double-click/new window" issue.

This file contains the following lines:

P.S: Copy the blue content to ie8-rereg.txt, rename to ie8-rereg.cmd, right-click on it and "Run as Administrator" - restart your machine and voilà !!
