At work there is a need to print a cover/separator page for every print job.  In the past this has been as simple as configuring the print driver to use a separator page pointed at a PCL.sep file.  This always wroked great with Windows XP Pro.  Now I am trying to do this after upgrading to Vista Business and the separator page will not print out.  I have the latest HP 4200PS driver installed and the printers firmware is up to date.  I am using a 4200tn printer.  

Any thoughts?

what are you specifying the seperator file on the properties of the printer locally?

I configured an XP machine with a separator page and this also does not print a cover page.  What could have changed on the 4200tn printer to cause this?

IanTh, I did not understand your question.

PCL.sep is a separator file designed for use with a PCL5 driver.

With a PostScript (PS) driver), use the simple pscript.sep file, or the more complex sysprint.sep or sysprtj.sep files (I can't remember the difference between these, sorry).
