5 Known Issues
The following is a list of the known issues with this release of the Windows 2000/XP Pro Printer Driver:
ALL APPLICATIONS:
If you change the Document defaults, Printer Preferences, or Printer properties when an application is open, if
these changes are not applied in your application, restart your application.
If you receive an “operation could not be completed” error message while attempting to install this print driver it is
likely that the previous driver has not been fully removed. Follow the instructions above for removing first the Net
Port Monitor and then the Driver. If this fails to correct the problem, manually remove the files listed in the Driver
Installation section, and then delete the “XES” registry entries listed below and reboot your computer.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\XES Net Port
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\XES PJL
ACCOUNTING:
When using printer accounting from a client going to a server, you must set the driver to use the RAW data type
only under “Printer Properties”, “General Tab”, and “Print Processor”.
WINDOWS 2000:
When updating a driver if you receive an error message “Printer Driver was not installed. Operation could not be
completed.” Delete the printer from the Printers Folder, restart, and Add the printer again.
WINDOWS XP:
If the printer port is created from an account that does not have administrator rights will not work correctly. Test
prints will not print, and other applications may not be able to use the printer.
NOVELL NETWORKING:
Novell banner pages cause the 8825/8830/8850/8855/510 Series/721p/6030/6050 to print error pages, and
possible not print the image. Therefore, the user should verify that the Novell banner page option is disabled when
using this print driver.
AUTOCAD LT:
Paper size must be set in the application. AutoCAD LT ignores certain settings in the driver and paper size is one
of the settings overridden.
BENTLY MICROSTATION:
Bentley Microstation overrides all driver features. See Microstation web site at
http://selectservices.bentley.com/supporttools/index.htm
COREL DRAW:
Corel Draw 8 tends to put erroneous data in text fields in the driver; this is especially noted in the copy count. You
may see the copy count go to such values as 50 or 520 unexpectedly. It is recommended that you verify your copy
count when entering the Driver’s Document properties dialog through Corel Draw 8.

Color darkening gets overridden with CorelDraw.

IMAGING:
Printing with Imaging to paper sizes larger than 80’ long doesn’t work if you use the Imaging print setting “Actual
Size”. All the other settings seem to work; such as “Pixel to Pixel” and “Scale To Fit”.
When printing to paper sizes over 80’ the driver must be setup to “Always Spool RAW Datatype”, this setting can be
reached via “Printer”, “Properties”, “General Tab”, “Print Processor” button. You may also print to file and then
send the file to the printer using our AccXES Client Tools.
EXCEL:
Use of the ANY paper size from within the driver does not work with Microsoft Excel. This is a limitation of Excel. If
you set the margins within the driver to large top and bottom values, you will not be able to produce a print. If
margins are necessary set them up in the page setup from within Excel. If the user selects a custom paper size
from within the driver and the tries to print, and application error may occur which will shutdown Excel. This is a
problem with Excel and its page size limits.
MICROSOFT POWER POINT:
Microsoft Power Point overrides the Drivers copy count setting.
To use larger than A-size paper in Power Point, the user must select the paper size in the driver.
MICROSOFT PROJECT:
In order to print Microsoft Project documents larger than A-size, the Windows Print driver requires Microsoft Project
4.1a or later.
MICROSOFT WORD:
Microsoft Word overrides the paper setup in the driver properties.
SPICER IMAGINATION 4.50:
Intermittent problems occur when printing from Spicer Imagination 4.50 using this printer driver. The application
periodically overrides some of the driver settings (e.g. Copies). To make sure Spicer uses the appropriate settings,
use the Printer Setup… path or dialog for settings and not the Print…path or dialog.
