    Printer Not Found

    I have recently had a problem emerge with printing from IE 5.5. I often use Acrobat to print web pages from within IE, but now when I try to access the Print dialog, either through File | Print or CTRL+P, several seconds pass and then I get a message that "The printer was not found". As such, I can't print to any printer driver whatsoever.

    I am fully able to print from every other application I've tested to any printer driver I have installed. I am able to open web pages in Acrobat and go from there, but I like the speed of using the PDFWriter print driver. In case Acrobat was the problem, I reinstalled it (version 4.05) but that hasn't helped.

    I'm running IE 5.50.4134.0600IC on a Windows 98 machine. Does anyone have any ideas? TIA,

    I'm not sure that Acrobat 4.01? or the previous version had the same features, but you may try installing that to see if it'll work... that would be my first step..

    Hope that helps!

    Re: Printer Not Found

    I don't know that I can install that version - my CD has 4.05 on it and I didn't see a 4.01 download on the website. Is there somewhere else I should be looking? [img]/S/dizzy.gif[/img] It appears to me that the last version was 3.0, and you can't even by it at Adobe.com anymore (the only option is 4.0, which is currently 4.05). The Reader is available in 3.0, but not the full version. Any other suggestions?

    (Drk, I like your new sig graphic, by the way [img]/S/yep.gif[/img].)
