Office 2010 on Windows 7 X64 will not print

by armaknyc / August 1, 2010 11:34 AM PDT

Have two Lenovo ThinkPads on a WiFi LAN. The X200 has Vista and Office 2007 and will print from Office. The other has 7 x64 and Office 2010 and will not print from Office, even though Windows Printer test works and the Office apps see the printer (Xerox Phaser 6280N) and their Printer Properties link acts normally.

Any ideas what's wrong and how to fix this? I have tried reinstalling Office and the Xerox driver.

Windows 7 X64 printing on Xerox Phaser 6280N

Thanks, Marc. The blog you pointed me to had the solution. I knew that Windows 7 X64, in general, needs to see 64-bit drivers. I thought I had downloaded such a driver from But one has to be very careful pointing to the right download, and then taking pains to ensure that downloaded driver is the one being installed.

Glad you got it sorted.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
