You may encounter one of the following issues when you want to print with a Lexmark printer:
The issue is caused by virtualization of registry keys. During the Lexmark software installation and registry keys writing, if for any reason the Operating System (OS) registers that it does not have the proper permissions to write the key, then, attempting to resolve this, it will write it in another part of the registry. The OS then would attempt to redirect to this section of the registry if these keys need to be accessed.
This patch will remove Lexmark and LexmarkInkjet keys from the registry at: HKey_Current_User\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\Machine\Software.
NOTE: The registry section is HKey_Current_User, which mean the issue should not exist if you create another administrator account and log on to that account. If you create a new account and the issue still exists, this patch will more than likely not resolve the issue.
If you require additional assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support. NOTE: When calling for support, you will need your printer/model type and serial number (SN).
Please call from near the computer and printer in case the technician on the phone asks you to perform a task on this device.
