Re: Word Perfect won't print. NIMDA?
Not all versions of Word Perfect work in XP. I read your post twice and didn't see what version. There were a few.
In closing, you may want to look into tools like Spybot, Adaware and see if you find a parasite on the machine. You should look up STINGER to see if you can kill off the apparent NIMDA infection.
You may have revealed that you don't run an antivirus or it's out of date (way out!)
Re: Word Perfect won't print. NIMDA?
Thanks for the reply. I use Norton anti-virus and Ad-Aware and Zone Alarm. I did have some kind of bug recently. I had some one re-install windows to get rid of it...when he was re-installing my programs he said that that pesky "SAMPLE" program did not show up until he installed Quicken. I have un-installed Quicken now and that program is still there everytime I try to shutdown. Maybe I should just start all over again and re-install windows all over again. Thanks for the help.
Why work hard?
Try an online virus scan such as Housecall or Panda.
Also, you could use MSCONFIG or another tool to control that program.
In closing, I dropped a hint that the version of Word Perfect may be a factor. Maybe you can tell?
Re: Word Perfect won't print
If 'Sample' caused the printing problem, it would most probably cause the problem "across the board". Anyway, which version of Word Perfet? 9? 11? 12 ?
Did you download and install SP 2 ? At File>Print, did the Printer Name still show up your default prnter ?
Word Perfect printing is different.
It depends on the version of WordPerfect, but for years WP would render output to the printer rather than let Windows do it. This solves the issue about documents will look and print almost identically across machines, OS and printers. But it impacted WP's capability and support staff. I'd rather not write in depth all this implies.
But it does mean that versions can be a factor here.
word perfect and windows xp
i have almost the exact same problem with word perfect 11. the sample you talk about doesn't appear. i reloaded word perfect and it still does the same. i have an epson stylus 7400 which seems to work fine otherwise.
WP won't print
My Wordperfect 12 has stopped printing to any printer. I use three different printers and WP used to work fine with each one, but now I cannot print from WP 12 at all, nor can I convert a file to PDF.
First the application became unstable when I tried to print; now -- nothing. When I shut down the computer, I get the message that PrintServer is not responding. (No "Sample" in the background.)
I can print from any other application. I've been a Wordperfect user for 18 years & don't want to give it up!
Check that WPU forum post?
Here's where I get stuck on the support info. When I try to edit the registry (whatever that means) I follow the instruction up to the "envelope" instruction. There is no such folder in my string.
The instructions read:
"Click on ?Start? and go up to ?Run?
Type in regedit into the ?Open:? box. Click on ?OK?
Scroll up to the top of your screen until you see ?My Computer?
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Corel
Right click on the folder ?PrintEngine? and go down and left click on ?Rename?. Change the name to PrintEngineOld
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Corel\WordPerfect\14 ('13', '12', '11' or ?10' if your using that version)
Right click on the folder ?Envelope? and go down and left click on ?Rename?. Change the name to EnvelopeOld"
There was a similar repair
And the member stopped at just such a missing entry. If only they had moved to the next 2 steps in the link I had given them the problem would have been cured. So did you stop or try to get it done?
I tried the putting a shortcut to Printserver 120 on the Startup and now I'm printing!!!
THE PROBLEM IS WORDPERFECT!
This happens with EVERY version of Wordperfect. It happens on my home computer and my work computer. It happens no matter what printer you have or no matter what windows version you have. It happens to other people I know as well - and even our work computer experts can't figure it out. HERE'S THE SOLUTION: STOP BUYING WORDPERFECT. I used to swear by WordPerfect and used to LOVE it. But since the COREL GRAPHIC people took it over - it SUCKS! Don't give them a PENNY of your money. And if your new computer comes with it - tell the manufacturer YOU DON'T WANT IT!
