UMS-BYOD-FindMe queue does not show in Printers and Scanners on Windows computer after installation of BYOD Printing

After a Windows Update or computer restart the UMS-BYOD-FindMe queue is no longer available to select to print to and does not show in the list in Printers & Scanners. The UMS-BYOD-FindMe queue may not show after initial installation either.

Detailed Information 

There appears to be an issue with Windows that occurs if the computer hostname is greater than 15 characters, the Print Spooler service frequently fails to load the dll used to create the port, inetpp.dll, on a system restart. We were able to see in System that the Windows operating system is truncating the computer hostname after 15 characters.
