After WPFV opens an image and I click on print it just hangs  and It gives me that run dll as an app error.  I have to end task on the TIF file. If I save the file and reopen, it prints as it should. I've been searching all day and can't find the fix.

Im using XP spk3 with Office 2007

Thanks for your time

Hi mycitizensIT
does this assist you
When you try to open a fax that is a TIFF file in Microsoft Office Document Imaging, the fax opens in the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer instead
This issue occurs because TIFF files are not associated with Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
Right-click the TIFF file that you want to open.
Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program.
In the Programs list, click Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box, and then click OK.

My issue is when I open a tiff file it opens in WPFV okay, but it will not print and hangs with the dll as app error. I have to go to task manager and end task on the tiff file. When I try your suggestion, my option to always use to open is greyed out. And I double checked to make sure I was using admin login.

Thank you

Microsoft Office Document Imaging may not be installed,  you dont get the print wizard ?.

my options for file associate were greyed out so I had to edit the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Value Name: NoFileAssociate
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: 0 or 1
0 = The user can add, delete, and change file type associations.
1 = The user cannot add, delete, or change file type associations.
