Question about PC Desktops

Since I purchased a new laptop running Vista, I can no longer print PDF files. Everything else prints perfectly. I assume the problem lies with Vista, but with no response from Microsoft do you have any ideas please? Rosemary

    I am using Adobe Acrobat 8 to open pdf files. Nothing happens when I hit Print except for box that says no can do, printer inaccessable or words to that effect. I have tried all printer options available.

    Thanks heaps Joed911. Your suggestion fixed my problem. I downloaded Foxit and I was able to print my pdf file immediately. After weeks of frustration I can now get on with my work. Thanks again.

This sounds interesting.
Does nothing happen or does the print job sit there not being printed?
When you try to print the pdf have you checked to make sure it is going to the correct printer and not something like the Microsoft XPS Document Writer?
Can you open a pdf on this system to view it? If so, do you know what program you are using?

How to convert a web page to a .PDF in Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2008/2003/2000...


In a previous tip I taught you how to print to a PDF. Converting a web page to a .pdf can be done the exact same way.


Step 1: Download and install this free program
http://www.dopdf.com/

Step 2: All internet browsers print the same basic way so just go to the tool bar of your browser and click File>Print -When the print window opens make sure dopdf is in the pull down box

Step 3: Click Print, DoPDF will open and you can select where you would like to save the .pdf to.

That is it. You have now turned your web page into a PDF file.

Hope you enjoy this and all my other great tips!

By the way did you get microsoft office with your new PC, if so you can download a "word plugin" from microsoft which will allow you save to PDF, there are also several "freeware" converters that can be downloaded. most install as a "PDF printer" you just print the file to the PDF printer rather than your default, then they give you an option to "resave" as a PDF
