Problem printing PDF files
Posted on 2010-08-24
Recently developed a problem printing PDF files. In past was able to print PDF files off internet (Firefox) or print PDF attachment to emails (Outlook 2007) - Running Vista Home Premium 32.
When attempt to print, instead of going to printer dialog computer opens dialog to save document - error message comes on about script hanging up (assume that is the printing script)- after comply with dialog and save pdf document the print dialog comes up but hangs up the computer for several minutes. The PDF file DOES eventually print.
I believe I MAY have seen flash of reference to PDF Create software during this process - have PDF Create 4, PDF Creator 4 and OmniPage 15 - all originally Scansoft software but now Nuance software - possible interference between software with some recent update of windows... Nuance site will not give assistance as out of support period. Printer default set to Fuji Xerox Docuprint 203A and everything else prints OK.
Have NOT tried to uninstall Monipage or PDF Create or PDF Converter as they were an on-line download from 2007 (when upgraded to Omnipage 15 came as a package) and suspect no longer have on-line access to the vista compatible version.
Would like to be able to print PDF files without having to save the documents - and then without hanging up computer for several minutes before print goes through. If necessary will sacrifice (uninstall) Scansoft software but would like to avoid that step unless necessary.
