Using a Brother MFC7340 laser printer Microsoft Word 2010 will not print envelopes.
The envelope feeds through the printer but is blank.This started after we upgraded to Windows 7 Pro from XP Pro and Office 2010 from Office 2002 (XP). Envelope printing worked well before the upgrade. Equipment is all the same, only software has changed.

It may be the printer is not compatible with newer software.

1. Can you get a newer Brother print driver for Windows 7?  I recall having an issue with Brother drivers when I moved to Vista a while back.

2. Print an envelope on a blank page (leave the envelope out). What does it print? and where does it go on the page?

Check the settings for the manual paper feed, instead of automatic, choose the # 10 envelope, you may also need to change the default paper type as well. Once these are changed try printing again. Are the drivers for the printer installed locally on each machine, or are the drivers on a print server? If they are on a print server maybe you need to update the drivers.
