Specifies the maximum number of print provider names that can be stored in the printer name cache.
The spooler stores the names of print providers in the printer name cache and uses this cache to locate the appropriate print provider. This prevents the spooler from needing to search through all print providers installed on the system.
Windows 2000 does not add this entry to the registry. You can add it by editing the registry or by using a program that edits the registry.
