Ellie Mae Encompass: Printer Not Activated, error code -20

When Printing Custom Forms, It Fails To Print with "Printer Not Activated"

While printing custom forms from Encompass, all of a sudden it stops being able to print forms and shows "Printer Not Activated, error code -20" It may have worked fine last week, but now it does not.  The solution is to create a windows registry key as follows.
Printer Not Activated
Printer Not Activated.

Call Stack Error
Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup

Final Error Dialog
Form Failure Report

The Solution

Create A registry entry as follows using regedit.exe
Windows Registry
use regedit.exe to get this key made

Set the permissions.

That's all it takes.

Many Thanks
