What you will see

When you print certain documents, either:
  • No printing occurs, or
  • Not all pages of a multipage print job are printed.
  • Printer is shared, and while using the shared connection there is no printing (or not all the pages are printed) of a multipage document.



On some Vista PCs the security rights on the %windir%\temp directory has been changed from the normal settings, leading to the above symptoms.


What to do

1 Download the print failure test and try to print it.
