8 Known Issues

When this driver is installed as an alternate driver on a server, then installed on a client machine from that server, the default values are all incorrect on the client machine. To repair the problem:

Click Start / Settings / Printers.

Select the icon for the printer.

Right click the icon, and select “Document Defaults”.

On each tab (Paper, Job, Graphics, Rendering), click the “Restore Defaults”


Click the “OK” button.

This version of the driver has a bug in color processing. Red and blue are reversed, so using this version with an X2 is not supported.

The following is a list of the known issues with this release of the Windows NT 4.0 XES

Net Port Monitor:

If you log off Windows NT 4.0 and then try to configure the port the Transmission Retry field will be grayed out completely and you will not be able to see the value. The spin buttons will still work, but you will not be able to see your changes. You can fix this by doing a net stop spooler and then a net start spooler at the command line or just restart Windows NT. This is due to an incompatibility of the common spin button control in the spooler environment after logging back into Windows NT.

The following is a list of the known issues with this release of the Windows NT 4.0 Printer



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, 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\XES PJL


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”, “Print Processor”.

Page 11


Novell banner pages cause the 8825/8830/8850/8855/510 Series/721p/6030/6050 to print error pages, and possibly not print the image. Therefore, the user should verify that the Novell banner page option is disabled when using this print driver.


Paper size must be set in the application. AutoCAD LT ignores certain settings in the driver and paper size is on of the settings overridden.


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.


Under NT 4.0 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”.

Under NT 4.0 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



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 ‘custom’ from within the driver and then tries to print, an application error may occur which will shutdown Excel. This is a problem with Excel and its page size limits.


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.


In order to print Microsoft Project documents larger than A-size, the windows NT 4.0 Print driver requires Microsoft Project 4.1a or later.


Microsoft Word overrides the paper setup in the driver properties.


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.
