I feel like an idiot. Well, I found in the i386\System32 directory a expanded version of spoolsv.exe, so I copied that and it worked...almost.
Now when I go to add the printer, it simply says "Operation could not be completed."
Then, as I just noticed, it seems as soon as I shut the services/printer window down, the service shuts off.
The service is set to automatic. Run as local system account, and on first or second failure, restart itself.
My guess is something doesn't want this service to run and is shutting it down. But how could I know?
