simple fix: network printer error 0x00000709

This is a pretty simple fix for Network printer error 0x00000709.

1) Add a printer manually using a local port (LPT1) and load your printer driver.

       Add a Printer
       The printer that I want isn't listed
       Add a local printer...
       Use an existing port (pick one... I use LPT1)
       Have Disk

          Pick printer driver
                Remember to load the correct x32 or x64 driver.
       Type a printer name
       Share printer if you want
