Hp officejet pro won't print pdf files

In order to print PDF file format grab CutePDF.
  • Visit . Click "Free Download." A box will appear asking, "Do you want to run or save this file?" Answer with "Save." The download will begin. Download Ghostscript (see link in Resources). Look for "You Can Get the Free GPL Ghostscript 8.15 Here" sentence and click "Here." This download is required for the CutePDF program. Save the GPL Ghostscript file to your desktop.
  • Double click the "CuteWriter" icon on your desktop once your downloads are complete. Click "Next" on the Setup - CutePDF Writer screen. Click "I Accept the Agreement" on the License Agreement screen. Click "Install." The CutePDF setup will run. Click "No" to the CutePDF Writer Setup box that appears next that asks "Would You Like to Download the Converter?" You have already downloaded the converter. Once the setup is complete, a Readme.htm file will appear in your Internet browser. Read this file or print it.
  • Double click the "Converter" icon on your desktop (it will have a black "G" as its icon). Click "Setup" on the right side of the WinZip Self-Extractor converter.exe box. Another box will appear and then disappear. The setup is complete, and CutePDF is ready for use. CutePDF installs itself as a printer, and this allows any Windows program to create a PDF.
  • Open any Windows application like Microsoft Word or Excel. Open any document you would like to convert to a PDF file.

  • Click File > Print. Select "CutePDF Writer" from the Name List in the printer box. Click "Properties." Choose your "Layout" and decided how you want your page to print. Click "Paper / Quality" and "Color."
  • Click Advanced > Page Size. Click "Print Quality" and change the DPI. The bigger the DPI, the larger the file size of the PDF will be. If you are creating a PDF to be emailed, choose 72 DPI or 144 DPI. If you are printing this PDF, choose 300 or 600 DPI. If sending the file to a commercial printer, choose 600 or 1,200 DPI. For most applications, just adjust the DPI setting and leave the other settings alone.

  • Click OK > OK > OK. A "Save As" box will appear. Enter a filename for your PDF file and select the directory you would like to save the file to. Click "Save." Your PDF is done.

    How do I fix a drm problem in windows media player 11

    DRM, which specifies whether tracks copied from CDs in Windows Media Audio (WMA) format are protected files. A license, which helps protect the copyrights of artists by preventing unauthorized distribution, is required to play protected files.
    If you're trying to play your copy-protected files on a new computer, you can migrate your protected music from one computer to another by doing the following:
    Windows Media Player 7.1 or later
    Try to play the copy-protected file again.
    In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
    Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
    Windows Media Player 7
    Download the Personal License Update Wizard for Windows Media Player ( follow the instructions.
    Try to play the copy-protected file again.
    In the message that appears, click the More Information button.
    Follow the instructions for migrating your licenses.
    A license can be migrated ten times. After this limit is reached, you will receive an error when you try to migrate the license again (for more information, see the Windows Media Player FAQ). When this occurs, you will need to rip the file from the CD again.
    note.gif Note If you still have the CD in your possession, you can rip the tracks from the CD again, but with copy protection turned off.
