Access 2003 runtime printing problem

    I have just delivered my latest system to the customer, and to my horror I
    find that, when installed at the customer's site, nothing prints! There are
    no error messages, the system simply carries on as though, as far as Access
    is concerned, the printing has completed successfully.

    This applies also to print preview, and occurs regardless of how the
    printing is initiated i.e. whether it's a form printed or previewed from the
    menu, or a report opened using DoCmd.OpenReport, same result: nothing!

    Page Setup from the menu also doesn't work: no errors, but no dialog box

    It's an ADP, installed with the Access 2003 runtime on Windows XP SP2
    workstations. I have tested the runtime install myself on a clean computer
    (i.e. with no Access version previously installed) and the printing is fine,
    i.e. the problem only occurs at the customer's site, it is not a "general"
    problem with the runtime.

    Other applications on the same computers can print just fine e.g. Word, Excel.

    Anyone seen anything like this before?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
