Microsoft Publication Service Device Host

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have an odd question. What is the Microsoft Publication Service? This appeared on my Vista computer last night, when I tried to connect to a Windows 7 computer.

I have successfully connected to the Windows 7 computer before, and this "Device Host" hasn't appeared.

Thank you, Andre.

I've seen that link before, but it doesn't really answer my question... I don't know why the Service "randomly" appeared.

EDIT: I turned the Function Discovery Resource Publication service off and that seems to have fixed the problem. The "device host" no longer appears in my network folder.

I am surprised that there isn't more material on this.
