ZA and installed printers

by Willy / June 24, 2004 12:11 AM PDT

Anyone got some info on ZA(free and Pro) interfering with installed printers? It seems ZA causes the printer to be unavailable(error) after ZA being installed. Most of the babble refers to HP brand. I haven't found a true related cure.

The current jerry fix is to re-install ptr. but the process lasts only until the next reboot. -OR- de-install ZA and the ptr. is OK. Thanks -----Willy

Re: ZA and installed printers...cure?

Here is a link I found to help those with similar problem(s). But, you really, really, really got to delete current ZA for a fix and then it may not work.

Besides thier help, no real help from ZA or HP support directly. I got bombarded with requests to fix it and I just got lost at the time, it didn't make sense. I wasted time in other directions. Sad -----Willy

The crux of the ZA fix is either de-install ZA5 and do a true full install if updated to a certain level. -OR- de-install and goto an earlier version non-ZA5. I got some from ZA forums, but for the most part its a hit-or-miss fix. -----Willy
