When I use a printer created with printui.dll e.g. rundll32 printui.dll, PrintUIEntry /ga /n \\servername\quename The queue is created, test pages work and all applications were seeming to print until I set that printer as the default printer. Whe I do this Access will not open any reports. If hower I creat a printer manually and make it a local port with name \\servername\quename .... all seems to be roses. Has anyone come up against this problem? I need to basically find a way to fix this or find a way to create a local port the way I manually did with the wizard. Any help/suggestions greatly appreciated.
