Office 2007/Parallels 11 now creates Postscript file before printing. Why?

Office 2007/Parallels 11 now creates Postscript file before printing.

Since upgrading to Parallels 11 (or later?), Office 2007/Parallels 11 now 'creates' Postscript file before printing.

Using Print/Quick Print in Word/Publisher/Outlook 2007, now returns 'Converting Postscript File...' and then new Print dialog window (which also resets copies counter to 1).

How can I prevent this extra procedure? Why does in occur?

Hi.

I found this link and thought I'd pass it along in case it is the issue.  As the KB says, have you downloaded the Apple Bonjour for
Windows?  The KB says there is an option to select generic or postscript, and some other recommended things during setup.

I guess that may not be it.

While unable to find a tech support number, I searched their forums for "postscript"  and reading some, it appears Parallels only uses Postscript and you will have to go through that possibly.  Since I'm not a Parallels owner, I would recommend you participate in the forum to clarify this.  If you try to print a postscript file with incompatible driver or printer, you will get the gibberish described in some of the posts.

How to prevent...

You'd have to obtain or write a non-postscript printer driver for P11.

Why does it...

driver is only for postscript.


That's my take anyway.  I could of course be wrong.  :-)
