    Can I turn off photo printing wizard (XP Pro)

    I think this may be a possible solution to my problem of printing attachments.
    Every time I try and print an image (from outlook attachment), the photo printing wizard appears, waiting for user intervention. Sooooo annoying.
    I have even changed file association of tif files to paint.exe instead of shimgvw.exe in order to try and get the Paint app to print it (because in MSPaint, when you select print....it prints). But, when try to right mouse print from explorer, the photo print wizard pops up.
    Please, anyone got any ideas?

    Whilst we are there, does anyone know what the options "% 1, % 2, % 3, % 4" are in the printto association?

    TIA
    Alan,

    The previous thread in Outlook relating to this issue can be found here: <post#=399564>post 399564</post#>

    Alan - I'll lock the other thread and add a pointer to here to prevent diverging or duplicate answers popping up.

    Thanks Leif,
    I got sidetracked (not uncommon in IT Depts I'm sure) whilst going to see how to enter the shortcut myself.

    1. My company has Net SatisFAXtion e-fax services, installed as a shared mailbox through Exchange. The default viewer for TIFs on my installation is the MS Document Imaging app, "MSPVIEW.EXE". Have you tried using it as your viewer?

    2. Can someone remind me where in Outlook 2003 the <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> option to "print attachments with message" is? I can't for the life of me find it, and I wanted to see if MSPVIEW would do what you are asking for.

    Thanks John,
    I was beginning to lose faith in this.
    print attachments is check box when you go to print a mail.
    Gotta say we haven't tried MSPVIEW.exe
    We are currently testing out an ActiveX control (image viewer) which, when installed on a form allows us to change the image source to the attachment (which has been temp downloaded to a temp folder).
    This is so far working although early testing at the moment.
    Thanks

    Thanks to you for the reminder about where to find "Print attachments with e-mail" I finally got to test a fax with the MS Image Viewer. Alas, it did not seamlessly print. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15> I'd like to hear more about the ActiveX viewer thingy if you get it working.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by charlotte on 11-Nov-04 13:28. to activate link)</P>John,
    Events overtook me and I am only recently able to come back here.
    Anyhows, the site with the image viewer is here:-
    http://www.viscomsoft.com/products/imageviewercppro/
    and so far it appears to be working reasonably well, although one user is saying that it doesn't always print all images (me thinks user errror)
