'Test Page' Print OK From Vista to Network Printer; But Nothing Else Will Print...
Posted on 2007-03-23
Scenario: Printing issue on Vista Ultimate.
The setup is described below
Printer Samsung ML-1750 on a Netgear PS110 Print server's port 1
Win Server 2K3 (server name svr1) are connected to the printer and sharing it within the domain (called ptr1). win2k3 printer driver is v1.07.
when I try to add a new network printer on the vista using \\svr1\ptr1, it was added no problem. And the test page was printed perfectly. vista printer driver is v3.01.
I thoguht I got it working; but... when I try to print a word doc. MS-Word says cannot connect to the printer.
When I try to print a web page, I got "Unspecified Error" from URL "res://ieframe.dll/preview.dlg" in IE7.
What can I do to fix this problem? The part I don't understand is the 'print test page' is sent from Vista, but why nothing else can print?
