Hi All,
We have this problem with printing pdf files from a webpage. There are links on a webpage to pdf files. It should be possible to print the pdf files directly by using "Print Target", but this option prints only a blank page with at the bottom the url printed.
This problem is discussed in MS KB article:;en-us;817454&spid=2073&sid=72

We still have the problems when we perform the actions as stated in this KB article .
It happens within IE6SP1 and IE6SP2.

We really  need this to work, can anyone help us out?

    I couldn't get it to work either.

    If you just want to print out lots of pdf files linked from a web page then you could try downloading them all to a folder then printing them.

    To download them all in one go, you could us any file downloading app (e.g. Go!Zilla ( or the DownThemAll extension in firefox. Either of these apps can be setup to download all .pdf files to a folder. Then select them all in Windows Explorer, right click them and select print.
