(Q) Windows: Error 482 when printing from Banner
There are known issues with network printer paths. Paths containing spaces and other "unusual" characters (excluding " _ ") may cause this error. Please check the network path for the printer from within the Windows Control Panel. To ascertain whether this is an issue, try capturing a port and re-directing that port to the required network path. This will enable the Microsoft Visual BASIC run-time to print to LPTx: but then allow the operating system to re-direct the output to the desired printer on the network.

This is usually due to one of two reasons, but both can be fixed in the same way. The following steps are required when the Banner registry entries have become damaged or settings are outside the 'normal' values. These steps should only be performed by a user familiar with the Windows Registry.
