Printing as specific user doesn't work

at the moment we have a problem with Adobe Reader (latest version 11.0.07) on a Windows 7 Professional Domain-PC (x64).
If the user tries to print a document, nothing happens. The print-processing doesn't appear after clicking on "print". The print-job isn't going through the spooler, it doens't appear in the job list. Event log has no entrys about that.
We tried different printers and completely different documents. We reinstalled Adobe Reader using the Adobe Cleaner-Tool, deleted the AppData and Temp-Folders.
What we can say is that it is a user specific problem. When we log on as Administrator or User (non-Administrator) this problem doesn't appear.
What can we do? We'd be happy about help.
Best regards

is there any solution for my Problem?
Best regards

  • Print to pdf often doesn't work with multiple pages?

    When I try to print to pdf, it often doesn't work right.
    I can select, for example, multiple Excel worksheets to print. It looks fine with 4 pages in Preview, but when I select save as .pdf, it only prints 2 of the 4 pages, and it prints those in 2 separate documents rather than a single .pdf document with multiple pages.
    Is there a way to do this? Is this an Apple error or Microsoft error? Since it looks fine in Preview, my guess it is an Apple error?

    It sounds like this is the problem with the way Apple handles multiple orientations in a pdf document. You can use Acrobat to print the files - it handles multiple orientations correctly. There was a previous thread on this:

  • Printing PDDoc with AFExecuteThisScript() doesn't work after an upgrade from SDK 5 to SDK8

    I have made an upgrade of my plug-in which was developed with the Acrobat 5 SDK. I upgrade it to Acrobat 8 SDK and my print function doesn't work anymore.
    Actually I print my document using a javascript trusted function instead the function provided by the C++ library for internal reason.
    Here below is the code used to print my document :
    char szJavaPrint[6000];
    "pp = this.getPrintParams(); \r\n"
    // fill pp with parameters
    "pp.interactive = pp.constants.interactionLevel.silent; \r\n"
    "this.trustedPrint(this, pp);"
    PDDoc pdDoc = AVDocGetPDDoc(avDoc);
    AFExecuteThisScript(pdDoc, szJavaPrint, NULL);
    It was working with the Acrobat 5 SDK but the print seems to have no effect using the Acrobat 8 SDK. I know that there is a change between Acrobat 5 and 8 concerning the Character Set (currently I set the Character Set to "Not Set" in the Configuration Properties of the project) but I don't think that my problem comes from the Character Set.
    All ideas to resolve this problem are welcome.
    Kind regards,

    See what happens if you remove the "setting of interactive to silent"...
    There is a restriction on silent printing in Acrobat, but I would not have expected that to be passed into this method - but it could have been overlooked and be a bug.
    Also, I don't recall a trustedPrint() method in Acrobat JS - check the documentation for the correct name of this function...

  • Hallo! I have Pavillon 5 with internet key.My new printer all-in-one doesn't work in web mode.

    hi! my new web printer doesn't work in wireless mode. Pheraps is necessary a router? Thanks to everyone can help me! :-)

    Hello maggio63,
    You would definitely need to set up a network on a router with a modem for internet connection.
    Once this is setup, you can follow this link to enable ePrint.
    Although I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP.
    If I have resolved your issue, feel free to provide Kudos and make sure you mark this thread as solution provided.

  • Windows users doesn't work after migrating from old to new server!

    We have done a complete re-install on our XServe with OD. We have about 10 Windows users, and after the installation all their settings and mail are gone. All the "normal" files are there though.
    I'm not sure we have done it the right way though: We did a backup from the old server (a bootable copy with Super Duper), then we formatted and installed everything. We made new accounts (with different names if that's good to know) and copied the users home folders to the new location. The Mac clients seem to work good, but all the settings on the Windows clients are gone...
    Is there an easier way to this? We still have the workable copy from the old installation. There seems to be some kind of export/import way to do this, but I haven't got a clue how to do that...
    Please help!

    We didn't reintegrate smb.conf, but set the new server up just like the old one. We did however compare these files to see that the vital parts (netlogon, shares and so on, and of course basic settings) were correct.
    We also copied the user files and profiles and made them identical on the new server, except for placing them under the new usernames.
    Regarding the Local Settings folder, it doesn't exist on the old server, that's one of the weird things. We've checked the profile for a user on the client machine, and it is a roaming profile. That's why we're a bit puzzled as to why the login works and all files are there, but the user preferences and Outlook doesn't work.
    I know I've read somewhere that the Local Settings aren't replicated like the other files in a roaming profile, but I haven't finished checking up on that. I wouldn't expect anything else than that Windows takes care of Outlook e-mail for a roaming profile as well though; I mean, the user must be able to read his/her mail from any computer in the domain, what else would the purpose of a roaming profile be?
    Except for the weird thing about us not being able to find the user preferences or Outlook files for the client amongst the files on the server, I feel we're missing something; Apparently Windows isn't as straight forward as one would expect (not sure why I did expect anything, come to think of it).
    We're going to give it a new go next weekend. Except for doing further research we're thinking of copying /etc/smb.conf and the files in /var/samba and /var/db/samba to the new server, along with exporting and importing the old user accounts to the new server, and then see if everything works as expected.
    If so, we'll see if we can change the account names in a nice way, it's really desired to do so.
    If not, we really need to do some more research, but if I'm not mistaking, the Samba-related files I just mentioned are the ones that pretty much make up the Windows Services in OS X, isn't that so?

  • Mount -o users doesn't work as intended, why not?

    I'm trying to modify some of the udev rules in the Arch wiki to work better for my setup. So I have this as /etc/udev/rules.d/11-media-by-label-auto-mount.rules:
    BUS!=usb, KERNEL!="sd[a-z]*", GOTO="media_by_label_auto_mount_end"
    # Import FS infos
    IMPORT{program}="/sbin/blkid -o udev -p %N"
    # Get a label if present, otherwise specify one
    ENV{ID_FS_LABEL}!="", ENV{dir_name}="%E{ID_FS_LABEL}"
    ENV{ID_FS_LABEL}=="", ENV{dir_name}="usbhd-%k"
    # Global mount options
    ACTION=="add", ENV{mount_options}="noatime,users"
    # Filesystem-specific mount options
    ACTION=="add", ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="vfat|ntfs", ENV{mount_options}="$env{mount_options},utf8,gid=100,umask=002"
    # Mount the device
    ACTION=="add", RUN+="/bin/mkdir -p /media/%E{dir_name}", RUN+="/bin/mount -o $env{mount_options} /dev/%k /media/%E{dir_name}"
    # Clean up after removal
    ACTION=="remove", ENV{dir_name}!="", RUN+="/bin/umount -l /media/%E{dir_name}", RUN+="/bin/rmdir /media/%E{dir_name}"
    # Exit
    And it mounts usb sticks just fine. Problem is, I still get a permission denied error when trying to unmount them, despite using the "users" mount option, which is supposed to let *any* user unmount the device.
    So I tried mounting the stick manually with the users option...
    # mount -o users /dev/sdb /mnt
    And still got the error on trying to unmount it:
    $ umount /dev/sdb
    umount: /dev/sdb is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
    So it looks like the users option is not working the way the fstab man page says it should. What am I doing wrong here?
    Edit: the users mount option works fine for CDs. Is there a way to make it work for USB sticks, or am I just stuck?

    Thanks... Kind of strange, that. Is there a way to use pmount and give unmount permissions for all users, so that I don't have to do the silly mount-as-a-specific-user thing?
    Edit: Oh N/M, just unmounting with pumount works great. Thanks!

  • HP 3310 and wireless printing from Tiger - It doesn't work

    I went through it with HP Support team but they are too bad to help me out.. I'm just hoping that I can find a solution here.
    Basically I just bought this fantastic printer, using the USB cable it works perfectly.
    If i try to use the built-in wireless connectivity, then I have some problems. If I try to print a test page from the HP printer utility then after few minutes the test page prints. But not right away like it does connecting the computer to the printer using a USB cable.
    However if I try to print a page, any page from any application, then it doesn't work, it says Starting printing... and then it goes to Idle.
    I have no idea what to do, I've tried to reinstall every single HP program but nothing.
    I'm hoping on your solutions! Thanks!

    i solved my problem ages ago... you just need to download the updated drivers and software from the hp website.. don't install from the cd.. and all works fine

  • The print function on websites doesn't work in Firefox.

    I want to print information from a certain website by selecting the Print View button. That works. But when I select the Print function, nothing happens. In other words, Firefox has stopped printing from websites. Other print functions (such as Word 2007) work just fine.

    Same problem, could not print web page. Deleted HP Smart Web Print program. Print function worked after removal. Firefox 4 Beta 8

  • LaserJet software/driver issues. Print and Scan Doctor doesn't work on scanning function of MFP.

    Upon using the diagnostic utility HPPSdr. exe, only the select an action "Fix Printing" shows up and not the "Fix Scanning" option. Our printer is the LaserJet 3050 connected via usb running under Windows Vista32 on a HP dv8408us laptop. The scanning driver is HP imaging There have been numerous problems with this scanning software/driver package which have been well illustrated on the HP forums. An update is sorely needed. All that HP customers really expect when we buy a product is that we get the functionality that we paid for and that we get support for the software and hardware for a reasonable length of time, I think that 5-7 years after the final production date of the product, at least, is reasonable. In the case of the 3050, the scanning has never worked right since day 1 because the scans are too light with signatures and time stamps showing up poorly. With the pnp driver installed it it almost impossible to scan in receipts, etc. The communication software Toolbox FX is needed to use the scan button on the machine, and since there are so many problems with this package with respect to system resource usage and connectivity, we can't use it and we don't get the walk up use of the scan button that we paid for originally. As Microsoft has updated the Windows OS, HP has failed to keep pace and we lose functionality of our equipment over time.  The diagnostic utilities have supposedly been updated several times and the scanning portion of the MFP still doesn't show. Surely the wide base of installation of this product could justify the expense of some engineering time for an update to the software and drivers. If HP hopes to turn itself around, a commitment needs to be made towards engineering products that really work in the environments that its customers use them, or else HP will merely be regarded as marketing company that is only concerned with selling the next thing without respect to customer retention.

    Thank you for your response,
         There have been problems with the software and drivers for the LaserJet MFP/AIO machines which have been well illustrated by many users on here for several years. What is shocking is the unwillingness of HP to address these issues at an engineering and design level. This is the level in your organization that these problems need to be addressed at, not at the marketing and customer service level. The software/driver package has never really worked right ever since the 3050 - 3392 series was introduced back in 2006. The scanning drivers in the pnp drivers don't work, and never have, because of frequent communication problems. Someone never bothered to check if a blue ink signature would scan. I and several others have reported on these issues. What I have discoverd, through much trial and error, is that the full software package upon installation with only basic drivers installed using the check boxes in the menu, actually installs differently than the pnp driver. Who would have thought this? So now the machine scans OK. 
         My PC really appreciates not having the ToolboxFX installed. ToolBoxFX Error messages and crashes have been well documented on here. This is an application that puts an unnecessary drain on system resources. The only problem is that now the use of the Scan button on the machine is taken away so I don't get the walk up use of the scan button that we paid for in the original design. Why is the scan button function tied to the defective ToolboxFX software? 
         As far as printing goes, after carefully deleting the original print drivers, I use the PCL 5 and PCL6 UPD drivers. They work a lot better than the original print drivers ever did. But what about scanning? The scan driver on the 3050 dates all the way back to 7 2007. Scanning is an integral part of the functioning of most offices nowadays, but it is an afterthought at HP.  Why would a driver, software or diagnostic package only address half of the capabilities of a machine?
         When I went on the vacation recently, I tried to use my PCL 5 and PCL 6 drivers on my relatives 2009 OfficeJet 7310 and it wouldn't work at all. I had to spend 2 hours with multiple failed attempts to install the full 7310 package on my PC. Installation problems and repeated attempts are a constant theme with HP software. The very term Universal Print Driver is misleading because it won't work on many of the HP products out there. The product listing for the UPD, I only recently discovered on here, with help, because it was so buried on the UPD information page. 
         The LaserJet 3050 at $300 from Staples wasn't the most expensive printer out there, but it wasn't the least either. It is actually a pretty nice piece of hardware. I have invested over $1,500 in marked up toner since I've had this machine. HP needs to do better for us. 

  • FireSIGHT FirePOWER controlling traffic based on AD users doesn't work

  • CUPS printing to remote server doesn't work under Leopard

    So i have an ubuntu system running cups 1.2.8 as a print server. i have an epson stylus colour 760 plugged in and configured and working.
    i also had a macmini running tiger printing to it fine via ipp. now it didn't occur to me that something as simple (and important) as printing would be severely broken under Leopard. basically, after the upgrade, i can't print at all to the remote cups server.
    the symptoms are that the job queue will pause; even after clicking on 'resume', it will start the progress bar, and then after 100%, it will just pause again.

  • Changed network name and now e-print e-mail address doesn't work

    I have a 6500A Plus Deskjet.  I have an hpconnected account and changed my e-print e-mail address to something I would remember.  Then I changed the name of my network.  I have to get a new claim code ..... I enter it and when I try to choose my e-print addrss, it says that it is already been taken.  I was on the hp site within a half an hour of changing my network name.

    Hi rfmal1,
    Thank you for joining the HP Support Forums.  I understand that you needed to set up the ePrint feature of your Officejet 6500A after changing the name of your network.
    Your previous ePrint email address will not be available, once an ePrint email address has been used it is no longer available to be claimed again. I am sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.

  • Network printing with time capsule doesn't work with OS X Lion

    I have a canon printer which will print when it is set up and connected to my imac.  However when it is set up and connected to time capsule it will not print.  It thinks it has completed the job but it hasn't.
    I think that this may have something to do with OS X Lion.
    The printer is just new, I bought it as the old one was playing up - I had been unable to get the old one which was connected via the time capsule to print since installing OS X Lion but never put two and two together - I just assumed the the printer had eventually died!  So I bought a new one!  It seems to set up OK as it is recognised as being attached to the timecapsule but there is no out put.
    Does anyone have any ideas as how to sort this out?

    Solved (apparently): After reinstalling, iTunes 10.5 beta 3 appears to work.

  • WPC - MIME object in web article with anonymous user doesn't work correctly

    Hi all,
    we have a problem with the Web Page Composer (NW07 SP14 + Patch 01) and contents for anonymous users.
    We have define a site with the following elements: article (with text and jpg), paragraph (with text and pdf link) and a jpg image. All texts and the "standalone" jpg (not used in article/paragraph) are displayed correctly. The jpg in the article and the pdf link does not work correctly ("broken" link, PDF link requires a login name ?).
    The direct image in the website has the following link:
    (short url is turned off for error search...)
    The jpg in the article has the following link (this is the same jpg as the previous picture bild01.jpg):
    And the PDF link is:
    For anonymous users the last two urls are not reachable. These urls require a login (the first link not). The links work correctly with a registered user, not with an anonymous user.
    Does anybody have an idea? Is there someone who had this problem before and solved it?
    Many thanks in advance.

  • SmartForms printing  on ZEBRA S4M doesn't work!

    I heard that we can use SmartForms to design label. We would prefer to use SmartForms instead of Bar-One if possible.
    I've read the following OSS notes very carefully :
    750772 - Information on the ZPL-2 printer driver for SF
    750002 - SmartForms: Support Zebra label printer (ZPL2)
    We are using Zebra S4M printer.
    Basis installed the Zebra S4M driver. I did a print configuration test and it works well, so I suppose the printer has been installed correctly.

    Hi Alexander,
    I have a question. I have designed my smartform with a style which is a label. I am able to get the data from the application program.  I should print it on a zebra printer. I can see the print preview too.
    When I give a print in the spool requests it shows me <b>Completed</b>.
    In the printer it is not printing . should I go for ZPL language and do that or is there any other way...
    Please help me out..
    with regards,
