I have a rather poor quality CAD program that creats 100MByte print jobs if
the drawing contains text. This really slows down printing. Is there a way
to allocate more resources to the print spooler (or ?) that might help speed
it up?

If you don't need to play with CAD while it's printing, you can turn
spooling off.

Right click My Computer > Manage > expand Services and Applications > click
Services > goto Print Spooler > double click and press stop and mess with
the options.

It'll just cause CAD to directly print to the printer without having to save
anything.

Just a thought,

bob

    If you have plenty of RAM installed, you may want to move the spool
    directory to a RAM-Disk. Control Panel > Printers > File menu > Server
    Properties > Advanced tab > Spool Folder.

      Try raising its priority via Task Manager (ctrl-alt-delete)

      Right-click Spooler.exe > Set Priority > High
