Office 2013 with Lexmark printer - Cannot change printer settings

I have a Lexmark x4650 and I can open the printer settings within all of the Office 2013 applications (Windows 7 64-bit). But after I change the settings to what I want, I cannot exit the printer settings dialog. If I click OK, nothing happens. If I click
Cancel, nothing happens. If I click the X in the upper right of the window, nothing happens. The only way to close the printer settings dialog is to force the Office application to close through the Windows task manager. I've tried re-installing both Office
and the Lexmark print driver/applications with no success. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anyone have a solution?

We need to narrow down the issue, to see if the root cause is on Office side or Printer side. Please try below steps for troubleshooting:
1. Try obtaining an updated printer driver from the printer's manufacturer. And update your PC, restart and try again.
2. Try to select another printer in Printer
drop-down list in any Office application, and try again to see if we have the same issue.
Printing is primarily controlled by settings in Microsoft Windows:
3. Please try to print a file outside the Office application, say a .pdf file to determine whether your printer setup in Windows is correct or using the Windows Printing
Hope this can help you. Thanks.

  • Administrator cannot change printer properties on "Advanced" tab from "Devices and Printers" on Windows Server 2012 R2

    Hello, dear Colleagues.
    User with administrators rights cannot change printer properties on "Advanced" tab from "Devices and Printers" on Windows Server 2012 R2. 
    If to launch "Devices and Printers" on server, all printer properties on "Advanced" tab are inactive (see screen below). 
    But I can change it manually with "Print Management". Features become active.
    The main purpose - to uncheck "Enable advanced printing features"  with powershell
    $erroractionpreference = "continue"
    $colPrinters = Get-Wmiobject -Class win32_printer -computername print_server -Filter "Name like 'printer1' or Name like 'printer2' or Name like 'printer3' or Name like 'printer4' or Name like 'printer5' or Name like 'printer6'" # get printers on server and filter with names

    Can you help me with that? Look like somethings with rights.
    Thank you.

    Hello, Alan
    Thanks for your reply.
    I've tried to runs PS Script both locally and remotely, previously running Powershell ISE as Administrator.
    I've noticed interesting thing - if to
    check "Enable advanced printing features"
    manually thru Print Management snap-in, script works fine. But, time to time after some manipulations on print server, this advanced feature returns to enabled state automatically by system, I think. In this case PS Script does not work. Next, if to disable
    feature manually again (thru Print Management snap-in),
    and enable manually again, PS Script will work. Very strange situation.

  • I just upgraded my iPad to ios6. Now my Epson iPrint crashes all the time. I called Epson and they had no answer...said to use AirPrint instead. But AirPrint stinks because you cannot change printer settings. Anybody know how to make iPrint work on ios6?

    Anybody know how to make Epson iPrint work on ios6? Epson told me to use AirPrint, which stinks because you cannot change printer settings.

    Epson needs an update to their app to support ios6. I'm sure they will in time.
    Try deleting it and re download it. If that doesn't work, it's what I said above. :(

  • How to Install Visual Studio 2010 on a PC with Microsoft Office 2013 with 64 bits

    I am with problems to have acess to the link:
    I want do install Visual Studio 2010 on a PC with Microsoft Office 2013 with 64 bits. How can I do it?

    Hello Carla Sofia,
    Visual Studio installation do not depends on Microsoft Office 2013. They do not have relationship here. I think your problem is that you cannot find the link to install Visual Studio 2010.
    In order to know why, please see here:
    The mainstream support for Visual Studio 2010 is already expired and that is why you cannot open any link about Visual Studio 2010 Setup.(I cannot verify whether that link is about VS2010 Setup.)
    I think you need to think about the following:
    1. If you need Visual Studio 2010, you may have to consider some other channels. For example, official site you can try use MSDN Subscription. For non-official site. Sorry I cannot provide any place for you
    2. You can use other latest version of Visual Studio, for example, we have Visual Studio 2012, 2013, 2015 for you to use. You can also use Visual Studio Express 2010 version. It is still available for download.

  • Trying to add HP Photosmart C4280 via airport express. "Add Printer" correctly finds printer as Bonjour kind but "add Printer" cannot find printer software from Apple

    trying to add HP Photosmart C4280 via airport express. "Add Printer" correctly finds printer as Bonjour kind but "add Printer" cannot find printer software from Apple (although it says that the software is available from Apple)

    You are technically way ahead of me, so I can't argue with what you did.
    How about an even simpler WiFi network consisting of only the AirPort connected by an Ethernet cable to the printer?  If the iPad still can't find the printer when connected to this network, then something is broken!
    (Also try a different Ethernet cable.)

  • Cannot change Printer Properties in Word 2010 with J6480. Properties revert to default setting

    When I attempt to change Printer Properties in Word 2010, they simply revert back to the default setting.  I am unable to use the Printer Properties within the Word 2010.  If the default is grayscale, that is all the printer will print unless I change the default setup in the Control Panel. It appears to be an incompatibility with Office 2010 software as other programs allow the change of Printer properties.

    I have the exact identical problem.  Brand new printer (HP PhotoSmart C4780) on a brand new PC (Windows 7).  I cannot access the printer properties dialog box when the PDF file has been opened in an embedded Adobe Viewer window in Internet Explorer.
    When I select [Print] from Word or Adobe Viewer, or anywhere else, I can then press the [Properties] button and it opens the printer properties just fine.
    But if I open a PDF document through Internet Explorer, clicking on that [Properties] button doesn't do anything.  No error or anything.  If I press the [Save] in the Adobe Acrobet-embedded Internet Explorer window, it too does nothing.  This leads me to think it is an Adobe Acrobat issue.  However, I have found nothing in their support forums on this topic.
    Does anyone out there have any ideas?

  • Cannot Save Word files as a PDF in Office 2013 with Office customization tool

    I'm deploying office 2013 as a part of a post clone task.  Using the customization tool I created an msp with the full installation (without outlook,Link, or skydrive) I noticed that I cannot save or export files as PDF files.  If I do a manual
    install (without MSP) I can save files as pdf.  I can't find anywhere in the customization tool that allows me to choose different "save as" file types. In office 2010 I used to be able to save word files as PDF files.  Any ideas would
    be greatly appreciated.

    In regarding the issue, could you give me more information? Did you test to install the Office 2013 by using MSP and manual installation in the same computer? Did the other Office suits can not save files as pdf?
    Let's do some test to narrow down the issue:
    If you use the only one computer to test, please export a new MSP file include all the suits and use the all the default setting. Then we follow the
    link to deploy again.
    If the issue still exists, please try to change a computer, and update Adobe programs to install the new MSP file to test.
    If you get some error message when you save as pdf through Word, please upload, I'll do more deeply research.

  • Cannot change printer properties when printing PDF files in IE8

    Whenever I try to print a PDF file displayed within IE8,  I cannot change the printer properties from the print dialogue box.  the properties button appears as if it as if it is active because it visually confirma a click; however no properties dialogue box appears.  printing html from IE8 works fine.
    If I save the PDF to desktop and print from there, I can change properties fine.

  • Cannot change print settings, print on foto size

    When I want to print a webpages the printer (HP6380) prints in the format 10 x 15 instaed of A4. I tried changing the settings in printermenu but it did not help...

    When reading your '''More system details...''' for the HPOfficejet 6300 series printer, the paper height is set to 11.0 and the width to 8.5 - '''inch''' settings for Letter size paper - not metric settings for A4 sized paper.
    Where are you checking the setting for A4 paper?
    {Ctrl + P} to see what is known as the "native print dialog", then check to make sure that printer is selected in the Printer - Name box at the top, and then hit the '''Properties''' button. The preferences that appear there are what Firefox uses. Settings that appear elsewhere or the "default" printer settings aren't what Firefox uses.

  • Deploying MS Office 2013 with GPO

    OK i would like to deploy office 2013 via GPO, i finally have been able to get the script to work however there is one more detail i need to get figured out.... How can i incorporate into the script so that it will only run once...  my script is below
    and does the following, it uninstalls office 2010 whether it be 32bit or 64bit then silently installs office 2013 as a startup GPO... how would the script look if i'd like to add so that it looks for a specific txt file that if its there it does nothing and
    if it's not it runs install script and perhaps at end of install script maybe it creates that txt file... I need help on the best way to just "RUNONCE"

    The problem with Office 2010 and later is that it is not designed to be installed remotely or by a script. You need to create an install spec and set up some prerequisites fist.  If you ten follow the instructions for using a GPO to deploy Office
    you will not need to  use a "RunOnce" key or anything else.
    Note that eh RunOnce key take a command or batch and command and is deleted as soon as it is executed.  The problem you have to solve is how to set the RunOnce key to begin with.
    You really must use the information in the links posted for Office deployment.  You cannot do an end run around this with any success.  If you search for forum posts on this you will see that many have been exactly where you are.  Don't wast
    your time.  Follow the instructions as posted in the Office forum and on the TechNet link.  YOu will find it is actually quite easy and very flexible once you understand the steps.

  • Office 2013 with Visio and Project Error - Package manifest is invalid

    In July I successfully created an App-V install of Office 2013 VL using the ODT. This week I decided to try just doing Visio as we don't install it or Project on all systems. I used my same customconfig.xml and just changed the ProPlusVolume to VisioProVolume
    and changed the source path. Everything downloaded and packaged fine. I was able to import into SCCM just fine and create a deployment to my test collection. However when I run the install out of Software Center I get (as part of a much longer error) the message
    in AppEnforce.log that the package manifest is invalid. Thinking that maybe I had to include Office as long with Visio I tried packaing all three items but still get the same error. Has anyone else seen this behavior and/or ideas how to fix it? Can I sequence
    just Visio or just Project? I'm including my config.xml just in case I've got something wrong with it that I haven't caught. Thanks

    Hy. I'm having the same problema.
    I'm trying to create na app-v package (v.5 SP2) of Office 2013.
    I downloaded the Office Deployment Tool for Click-to-Run from here:
    I installed it into C:\Office2013pck shared that folder as 
    \\APPVMANAGER\Office2013 and mapped as Z:\.
    I changed the configuration.xml file to:
    <Add OfficeClientEdition="32" >
    <Product ID="ProPlusVolume">
    <Language ID="en-us" />
    <Product ID="VisioProVolume">
    <Language ID="en-us" />
    Then I ran in na elevated cmd:
    >\\APPV-CL-WIN7DEF\Office2013\setup.exe /download
    >\\APPV-CL-WIN7DEF\Office2013\setup.exe /packager
    Everything seemed to work fine.
    The creted folder had Office\Data\15.0.4649.1001 folder (I guessed this is a version number)
    When I tried to add the package to App-V Server (in the Console) I get the following error:
    An unexpected error occurred while retrieving AppV package manifest. Windows error code: 1465 - Windows was unable to parse the requested XML data.
    I tryied to publish it from powershell, getting the same error message agalluci image post shows.
    From the Event Log I got this additional information:
    There was a problem retrieving the requested package \\APPVMANAGER\AppVpck\Office\VisioProVolume_ProPlusVolume_en-us_x86.appv for import. Error message: Unspecified error
    Element '{}UsedKnownFolders' is unexpected according to content model of parent element '{}Package'.
    I haven't found any indication of which file is the manifest app-v file.
    I also haven't found any .xml with the "UsedKnownFolders" tag (I changed the .appv package extension to .zip and explored some of the files).
    I tryied creating a package for 32 and 64 bits, only office, office and visio, and office visio and project running Windos 7 and Windows 2012.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Office 2013 with Service Pack 1 installation error about "search path"

    I have an automated installation technique that has worked fine with Office 2010 Pro Plus (32-bit), incorporating the latest Service Pack into the network administrative installation point (under \updates), adding 10 foreign languages to the network administrative
    installation point, creating a custom .msp with the OCT (that goes into \updates too), editing the config.xml files, and then running setup.exe from that network administrative installation point. This works on 32-bit Windows XP clients and on 32- and 64-bit
    Windows 7 clients.
    For Office 2013 Pro Plus, I have built the network administrative installation point exactly the same way (original DVD files + languages + SP1 updates + config.xml updates), but the installation is failing with every type of client, all with
    the same error message. The network administrative installation point is readable by the normal installing account, but I even get the same error when I login as me and initiate setup.exe manually, and I have all rights to this point.
    Here's the critical point from a log file:

    I cannot find any references to this exact error anywhere on the Internet. Can anyone tell me what this means, and how I fix it?

    As automated, the utility that runs setup.exe maps a drive letter to
    \\\archive\KBOXalt using a kboxmap AD account, which has read access to the whole \KBOXalt tree. I used that same kboxmap AD account manually to simulate what the utility does, and hit the same problem. But here's what's
    odd: right next to that
    \\\archive\KBOXalt\Office2013 directory is an
    \\\archive\KBOXalt\Office2010 directory, both created the same way, and the Office 2010 installation has always worked perfectly using the kboxmap AD account. I don't understand why Office 2013 is only working for an account with
    read/write access, where Office 2010 worked fine for an account with only read access. Especially when the Office 2013 resource kit documentation clearly states that the account running the installation should only have read access, nothing more. (All this
    KBOX stuff comes from the fact that our deployment environment is a Dell KACE KBOX 1000. However, that plays no part in the problem: ignoring the KBOX 1000, I can manually recreate the problem every time.)

  • Office 2013 with OneDrive Desktop sync conflicts

    I am using Office 2013, and I am on Windows 8.1 with OneDrive setup. I keep some files Offline and OneDrive syncs it for me which is cool. But when I installed Office 2013, when I edit Excel files, I notice that there's an Uploading to OneDrive message at
    the bottom while saving. Then I was prompted with a conflict during the sync. Isn't this because OneDrive is already syncing it and Excel is syncing it again that's why this happening?
    How do I disable Excel (or probably Word as well and other apps in Office) to stop saving directly to OneDrive? How do I disable the Office Upload Center that keeps on popping in the System Tray? I am already fine with the sync being done by the OneDrive
    Desktop. Previously, there was an option to disable Office sync from the OneDrive Desktop icon in the System Tray, but it is now gone and I couldn't find it anywhere else. Where do I find it now?

    To disable/configure this open up the Task Scheduler and click on the
    Task Scheduler Library node. You should see a task here labelled
    Microsoft Office 15 Sync Maintenance for USERNAME.
    Disable the whole trigger (right click and choose disable) or change the Properties of this to amend the trigger that starts the job. For instance, you can delete the trigger that starts on user log on.
    The other way is to find MSOSYNC.EXE and OSPPSVC.EXE on Disk C:, delete them:
    1. Open task manager and kill MSOSYNC.EXE and OSPPSVC.EXE
    2.  Search C: for MSOSYNC.EXE and note which one is the actual Office folder, then delete them all
    3. Go to the Office folder and create a MSOSYNC.txt file and edit it to put the quit command in it.
    4.  Rename the file to MSOSYNC.EXE and then change the permissions so the user owns it, and remove all permissions except for the user which should have all except WRITE.
    5.  Reboot
    This method above is like cheating, you can make fake MSOSYNC.EXE and OSPPSVC.EXE so that they can't even run.
    Anyway, Microsoft doesn't recommend you disable the Upload center.
