How to remove local printer ports?
I created a local port by accident, and it's clashing with another port that
Vista installed.
I need to remove it, but I seem to be locked out of removing it...any ideas
on how to remove it?

Re: How to remove local printer ports?
Launch printmanagement.msc

Navigate to the local machine Ports area

Delete the other port first, then delete the Local Port

Now add the other port back.

What is the other port Monitor name?

there is no printmanagment.msc
I looked in the system32 directory, that file (or anything anywhere near similar) does not exist in Windows Vista (well at least not in the home premium version)
