    What happened to the Printer Migration Tool?


    I just re-built a win 10 Home PC that was nearly at version 1909. (corruption was the reason for the re-build).

    I used the PrintBrmUi.exe tool to backup the printer settings, but after a clean re-install of 10 Home 1909, this tool is now missing. The file is supposed to be in system32. The tool is also missing from Control Panel/Administrative Tools.

    This printer has many many settings, and it will be a PITA to set it all up again.

    Anyone know of a way to get it back, or is this just another example of Microsoft being helpful?

    Cheers,
    Brodie

    Hi Rodrigo,

    I am sorry to know that you are having issues with Printer.

    What and all steps have you tried so far?

    Restart the computer and check.

    Also, check for Windows updates.

    I suggest you to run the Printer Troubleshooter and check if it helps.


    • In Search window type Troubleshooting and click on it to open it.

    • Click on Hardware and Sound.

    • Then click on Printer to run the troubleshooter. Follow onscreen steps.
