  • W7-64 (00371-OEM-9102011-63214) fails to print from only excel (2007) and adobe reader 9.x All other programs work (print) fine

    I am using a HP business inkjet (1000) on a network. The driver is compatible with W7-64

    All wxp machines print these documents fine.

    What happens is this: The printscreen is displayed; after clicking on print the spooler starts and than .... nothing.

    Can anybody help out?

  • Please remove the printer from Program and Features then Devices and Printers. After removing, please install the printer with the following steps.

    1. Click Start, click Control Panel and double click Devices and Printers.
    2. Click Add a Printer.
    3. Select "Add a local printer".
    4. Select "Create a new port". Choose "Local Port" as the type of the port.
    5. In the box "Enter a port name", type the address as the following format.
     
    \\<IP address of the host computer>\<The Share Name of the printer>
     
    If the printer is a network printer that has its own IP address, please enter
