942 DELL PRINTER WILL NOT PRINT FROM PROGRAM

I WORK IN A PROGRAM THAT IS CALLED COMPOSER FOR SIGN APPLICATIONS. I CANNOT PRINT FROM THIS PROGRAM. I CAN FROM ILLUSTROR OR PHOTO SHOP OR EVEN MY EMAILS. I GET THE MESSAGE EACH TIME I TRY. "THE PREFERENCED PAPER PRINTER IS EITHER UNAVAILABLE OR ITS PREFERRED SETTINGS INVALID. I HAVE CHECKED AND RECHECKED THE SETTINGS AND CANNOT FIND THE PROBLEM. I HAVE REINSTALLED THE PROGRAM BOTH FOR THE PRINTER AND COMPOSER. ANY SUGGESTIONS THAT I MIGHT TRY WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
