Error 0x00000709 is common for different printer on Windows most especially when you upgrade the system. What this error does is that user will not be able to make the printer a default printer and even when you tried to turn the printer to default printer the error message box appear with the comment operation could not be completed error 0x00000709.

This error is very uncorrectable easily even when you delete all the printer on the system, you will still not be able to make the printer a default printer. For me I even try to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver is still the same error.

Now the solution

  1. Go to Start on the search space which on the left corner of the desktop Type “regedit”   after typing Click on Enter key, then a Registry Editor window will pop up.
  2. Next, click “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” in the left hand pane of the Windows registry editor.
  3. Click on “Software” followed by “Microsoft” under the Microsoft look for Windows NT
  4. Click on “Windows NT”.
  5. Click on “CurrentVersion” inside “CurrentVersion”
  6. Click on “Windows”. 
    • Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows

  7. On the right hand you will see “Device”.  Double click on the Device and type the name of the printer in the value data space.
  8. Click okay.
  9. Restart the system                                                                                                                                                                                                                       You can now select the printer as the default printer. I think with this you can solve the problem and for more information comment below.
