Hello

VISTA compared to XP PRO has a limit on 12 files at a time for printing

Any way to overcome this?

What I am looking to do is select a whack load of files and print to my PDF maker

According to the comments from both Superb Tech and Modal, it says:


"http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2022295/

The following registry value may be modified to choose the number of files that may be selected while maintaining the context menu options.

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
Name : MultipleInvokePromptMinimum
Type : DWORD
Range: 1 - 128 (decimal)
Default : 15 (decimal)

A value of 128 is interpreted as "unlimited"."

Change the MultipleInvokePromptMinimum's value to 128 and try to print again.
