Cannot print from Windows Live Mail in Windows 10

I have a client who upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 10.  Upon upgrade, he can no longer print emails from Windows Live Mail (v2009 and v2012).

Anyone else experience this?

Also note that it doesn't matter which printer.  Even a PDF printer doesn't  prompt for a filename.  Nothing ever arrives at the print queue at all.  Tried reinstalling print drivers, etc.

Thanks.

Try printing a test page, does that work? If not, try from another user profile - is the problem with every user?

Test page works.  In fact everything prints except for Windows Live Mail, and (as I recall) the photo gallery product that I believe is part of Windows Live Essentials.  All other programs print fine.

It's as if the print function is not sending anything to the print queue at all.  When a print is initiated in Windows Live Mail, the print queue remains empty at all times.

McKnife, already upgraded his Windows Live Essentials from 2009 to 2012 by downloading the 2012 version.  Confirmed that the WLMail that is now running is 2012, not 2009.

I'll be back on site tomorrow to try the other remedies.
Also upgrade your printer driver.

Coincidentally, a new update to Windows Live Essentials came out after my message, in which "enable  printing" suddenly was there as an option.
