Learn how to fix, when you receive "There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper" error while adding printer in Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Server.

When you add printer to Windows, certain factors remain involved in the process. One of those factors is the availability of dependency services which should be working at the background so that you can finish adding the printer.

We faced this problem recently on a Windows 10 Pro running machine. In this case, we failed to add a printer due to following error message:

Windows can’t open Add Printer.
