Release Content
This release includes both the PostScript® and the HP-GL/2 printer drivers.
This release is provided to add support for 7142 with Xerox® FreeFlow® Accxes®
software v15.0, and provide bug and SPAR fixes.
This release is provided with English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Brazilian
Portuguese languages.
New or Changed in this Release
This release adds the following:
•
•
The 6050A®, 6204®, 6279®, 6604 Solution™, 6605 Solution™, 6622 Solution™
HP-GL/2 drivers are signed by Microsoft®.
The driver files have been renamed so that they coexist with previous versions of
the driver. Different models will coexist (ie, a v14.1.2 6204 driver will coexist with
a v15.0.5 6622 driver), but installing v15.0.5 of the same model will overwrite the
older driver.
The installer no longer removes old versions of the driver.
The installer checks if it is running on a server OS, and if so, recommends that the
user use the Add Printer Wizard.
Support for Accxes v15.0
•
•
SPAR and bug fixes.
Support for 7142
•
The files have been reorganized into a different directory structure.
•
The driver is now a ‘versioned’ printer driver. This means that when the server is
updated with a new version of the driver, clients which are using the driver will
automatically get updated. Since previous versions of the driver were NOT
‘versioned’ printer drivers, this feature will not be noticeable until the next version
comes out (ie, v16.0.1).

7142 Support Details
Print Quality Mode replaces Resolution for 7142 printers on the Rendering tab. The PJL
emitted is “@PJL SET QUALITYMODE=FAST”, “@PJL SET QUALITYMODE=NORMAL”, or “@PJL
SET QUALITYMODE=BEST”.

of manufacturer, have this limitation.

Known Issues
Accounting
For shared drivers, either the user using the driver to print must have privileges to turn
off “Enable Advanced Printing Features”, or “Enable Advanced Printing Features”
must be turned off for the driver. The driver tries to turn it off programmatically when
it thinks it'll have to prompt for accounting information at print time. But if it can't
(because the user doesn't have privileges) the accounting prompt happens on the
server. So if the user doesn't have the privileges, the feature must be turned off.
Shared Driver Settings on Clusters
The (non default) settings of a shared driver on a cluster are not propagated to the
clients when the driver is installed on the clients or when the clients click the “Default”
or “Default All” buttons.
AutoDesk® Design Review
This release does not support AutoDesk Design Review.
Adobe Reader®
PDF Page preview not displayed at right size on first page selection
Installer Issues
The installer is not digitally signed, so you may get a warning from UAC.
When run on Windows Vista or Windows 7, the installer will say it has completed
successfully, but then sometimes Windows will display a message like this:
If you click “This program installed correctly”, the printer which was installed is
installed correctly.

Additional Drivers are Not Installed or Upgraded by the Installer
Additional Drivers are drivers for a different hardware architecture than the one
Windows is running on. For example, if Windows is running on an x86 processor,
“Additional Drivers” are for the x64 architecture. Additional drivers are typically only
installed on a server, not a client.
The installer does not upgrade or install Additional Drivers Installation of Additional
Drivers must be done using the Add Printer Wizard. Upgrading Additional Drivers is
done by removing the old drivers, rebooting, and installing the new drivers.
Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 Help
The “?” button in the tabs and dialogs is not supported in Windows Vista and
Windows Server 2008. However, selecting a control and pressing F1 will bring up the
help (for controls which the user can interact with).
PostScript Driver Issues
•
When you change the port from an IP address to FILE, sometimes this causes
printer/properties to fail thereafter. Printing and printer preferences continue to
work.
•
Certain very long plots may not print correctly from Spicer Imagenation 8 with the
PostScript driver.
•
PS test page from Windows XP to Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 with job
accounting enabled produces error page.
•
Windows Vista (x86) and Windows 7 (x86) cannot push additional PostScript
drivers to Windows Server 2008 R1 x64 or R2 x64 . In order to install 32 bit
PostScript drivers as “Additional Drivers” on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system,
they must be installed on a 32 bit Windows XP system first, then push them to the
server.
-9-
HP-GL/2
•
For job accounting prompts to appear on the client workstation, the server must
be setup as follows. Failure to do so will cause a job accounting prompt to appear
on the server instead of the client.
-
•
User ID=<Blank>
Account ID=<Blank>
Save IDs not enabled.
Shared driver on server sometimes become unshared
This problem occurs when the following happens:
- Install the 64 bit HP-GL/2 driver on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system.
- Share the driver.
- Install the 32 bit HP-GL/2 driver as "Additional Drivers".
At this point, sometimes the driver is no longer shared, to check if the driver is
shared or not, do the following:
- From the “Devices and Printers” folder on the server, right-click the HPGL/2 driver in question.
- Select “Printer Properties”.
- Select the “Sharing” tab.
•
Printing Preferences don’t stick when both Postscript and HPGL drivers are loaded
for the same printer.

Printer Driver Installation
HP-GL/2 & PS
3
For installation on a server, the Add Printer Wizard should be used to install the
drivers. The installer is intended for use on client machines that are using locally
installed drivers.
This version of the driver has had the files renamed so that it will coexist with previous
versions. This version will NOT migrate settings from old drivers.
