    document failed to pirnt pop up box (win xp sp2)

    I am using a Script to print several hundred graphs to a networked (peer-to-peer) printer. I can stuff them in the queue faster than they print. As a result I get a continuing series of "This Document failed to Print" pop up boxes even all of the print jobs will complete successfully. While not terminally annoying, I would like to shut off the messages. Is there a way to do this?
    Thanks.

    I'm not sure if this would work, but may be worth a try:

    Printer > Properties > Ports > Configure Port...
    and set the Timeout to some higher figure than the default (I think) of 90 seconds.

    Perhaps put a delay in your script after each print which is ever-so-slightly longer than it takes to print one page?
    (And remember to make sure the paper tray is full before starting!).

    It also might be worth seeing whether that error message is covered by this Prevent Printer Popups tip...
