Error message "Before you can print, you need to select a printer" on Win7 x64 RRS feed

  • Frage

  • I installed a clean Win7 x64 on a new machine. Then I installed all updates and deleted all printers. Then I installed my HP network printer through new local standard TCP/IP-Port. Properties etc. can be opened, test page print OK. Then I start my .NET Framework 2.0 application and try to print from it but error message "Before you can print, you need to select a printer" appears. Then I open IE8 and goto File -> Print... The printer is shown and print button active. In this dialog I press cancel and then I switch back to my .NET Framework 2.0 application and press print again - now it works.

    I already added the .NET FW 2.0 program to Firewall Exceptions, started it as admin, cleaned the temp folder. What can I do to print without opening the print dialog from IE for the first time?

    Thanks in advance,

    André
