    • Uninstall PaperCut Mobility Print

    • Uninstall PaperCut Print Deploy by going to the PaperCut Print Deploy appiication folder (C:\Program Files\PaperCut Print Deploy for Windows and \Applications\PaperCut Print Deploy on macOS) and run the uninstall.command

  4. If job pauses in queue for authentication, click resume and enter UMS credentials when prompted

    • If credentials were stored, ensure to re-save with new password

  5. Reboot the computer, then test print
  6. If Windows 11 and the UMS-BYOD-FindMe doesn't show up in Printers & Scanners after install or disappears after the computer restarts, see UMS-BYOD-FindMe queue does not show in Printers and Scanners on Windows computer after installation of BYOD Printing
  7. If on ChromeOS and it was previously working using the Mobility Print App, see Mobility Print App Migration Guide.
  8. If after completing all the troubleshooting steps, the user still cannot print, then attach the following logs to the ticket:
    • Windows 
      • C:\Program Files\PaperCut Mobility Print Client\data\logs\mobility-print-client.log
      • C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\PaperCutMobilityPrintClient (zip up the entire folder)
    • macOS
      • \Applications\PaperCut Mobility Print Client\data\logs\pc-mobility-print-client.log


INFO: While waiting for a resolution, the user may be able to go to and use Webprint to print instead.
