Win 7 Pro 64-bit Printing Is Not Available


I have seen numerous topics on her about windows 7 64-bit printing issues. Here is my case and i have not seen another like it. 1st - please be aware that this is in a corporate environment, 2nd - i have domain administrator rights across the entire domain. We have numerous printers in our domain and i generally use 5 of them. The printers that i am connecting to are attached to a windows server 2003 32-bit box and all printers have the x64 drivers enabled from the mfg on the server. I am running windows 7 pro 64-bit and am attached to the network via cable. I can browse for the printer and have it successfully add, and print a test page from windows. But when i am using applications like ie8, office, adobe reader, etc. I cant print. The specific error that i am getting is "printing is not available. There are no printers installed. You can select and configure a printer in windows control panel. "

I can tell you that i cant print to anything that is listed in my devices and printers, including the xps document writer from microsoft. This only occured once i installed office 2010 beta, and dropped back to office 2007 std. I have removed the printers and removed all drivers from c:windowssystem32spoolx643 and re-added the printers with the up to date drivers without luck. Anyone have an idea on this one?

Visual Studio 2005 Pro Compatibility With Win 7 Pro 64-bit

Can i use visual studio 2005 pro on windows 7 pro 64 bit? I use visual studio 2005 pro on xp pro 32 bit. Can i use it on windows 7 pro 64 bit?I have looked on the vs site and could not find a definitive answer to using this version on my new os. I know, they're putting visual studio 2010 et al. I do not have the kind of cash they're trying to get from me. T least, if i can use it, i can do some self made/self-used projects. I will download the free development systems. But, they run out after 60-90 days. I still need to get ms office standard 2007/10.

Printing From 32-bit Xp To Printer Attached To 64-bit Win 7

We have upgraded our main network resource to a 64 bit machine running windows 7. When older 32 bit boxes running xp pro try to send print jobs to the central printer the xp box asks for an inf file. We have reloaded the canon drivers for the xp 32 bit box with no luck as it states it is still missing the driver. Tried to load 64 bit printer driver and the xp box rejected as 64 bit. The windows 7 box will print to the canon printer.

Webcam Nx Pro With Win 7 64-bit

I know that creative won't make available drivers for its webcamnx pro (for windows 7 32/64). My question is: doesn't exist some driver, of another device, that can be used for that webcam to work under windows 7 64 bits? The webcam nx pro, from creative labs, is a very popular wecam, and a very good device too. Windows 7 is an amazing os, so. It would be great if they could work together. What can be do? Find a compatible driver? Write an independent driver? To press creative labs to create the drivers?

Microsoft Office Pro What Version 64-bit?

I am upgrading to window 7. I just got my computer back from hp repair. Due to the repairs all of the software applications had been removed. The computer came with vista and a free upgrade from hp. I just upgraded to windows 7. Now i need to download my application software and i am starting with my microsoft office professional. I tried to go on the compatibility checker to make sure that the microsoft professional 2007 is compatible.

In checking, the microsoft website says that office professional version 12 is compatible with my 64 bit system. Where do i find my version? I have the original packaging from the store but cannot seem to find the version. How can i make sure it is compatible with a 64 bit system?

Win 7 Pro 64-bit - Random Freeze

I used windows 7 rc 32 bit before this, it worked like a charm. Now, i installed windows 7 pro 64 bit, it works for a couple of weeks smoothly.

Today, i did a few things:

1) installed thunderbird
2) installed a huawei e160g wireless broadband modem
3) changed my dns to 8. 8. 8. 8 and 8. 8. 4. 4
It froze a few times already, and this is what i recall:
1) firefox was open in all cases
2) the modem was being used in all cases
3) thunderbird was uninstalled, still happening.
However, it cant be firefox, i have been using it for weeks.

I just tried uninstalling the modem, smooth so far, but i cant be sure yet. I want to ask: has anyone else had problems with modems or their drivers/programs?

Cannot Install Xp Mode On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I am running a legitimate, activated copy of windows 7 pro 64 bit with the latest windows updates applied on a fairly new system. I am needing to install xp mode http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx however i can't get past the activation problem. I select professional 64 bit, english and click on the first button to download xp mode. It requires me to download and run the windows validation components first, but after downloading and running these the message is that they are already installed. They don't get as far a running. How do i actually get the system validated? There's no error other than "windows activation is already installed" and then the installation stops.

Cd/dvd Driver Issues - Win7 64-bit Pro Install

Cd/dvd driver issues in the beginning of windows 7 64-bit pro install. Installer will not let me move on until i find a driver for my dvd drive. The only drivers i can get to show up on the list are 64-bit drivers.

I'm upgrading from 32-bit so it won't let me use my vista cdrom drivers.
I have a sony optiarc rw ad-7170s firmware 1. 03 dvd drive
I created the bootable iso myself because of the issue with the digitalriver install
I burned the iso on 2 discs at 2 differnt speeds, didn't fix it.
Dvd is plugged into a sataraid pci card.

I'm almost sure it'll let me through if i can get my hands on the basic 64-bit cdrom drivers. I can't even find them online though.

Duplicate Program File Folders On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I clean installed win7 pro 64 bit os from win7 pro 32 bit on my laptop and duplicate program files folders (with and without x86 designation) have been created. The duplicated files are windows programs, internet explorer, windows defender, windows mail, windows media player, windows nt, windows photo viewer, windows portable devices and windows sidebar. Does this mean that these duplicate windows apps are needed for 32 bit and 64 bit software to be able to work with that type of software respectively? Do i really need a 32 bit and 64 bit versions of internet explorer, windows defender, mail, media player, nt, photo viewer, portable devices and sidebar?

It would have been nicer just to have one set of these windows applications that works with both 32 bit and 64 bit software. These windows applications use a lot of hdd real estate. It would also be good to be able to have the option of uninstalling one of the duplicate sets. Is the ability to do just that available now?

3. Can you advise the best way for me to install win 7 for this.

Printing From Xp Mode

I have read many postings across the internet and the various microsoft offerings and none have solved the issue at hand.microsoft state that when an xp application is invoked seamlessly or xp mode is invoked i should be able to share the native printers that have been set up in windows 7.
This is not so.

It is not possible to "see" the native printers from with xp mode, nor is it possible for the invoked applications to print, nor is it possible to add a printer to the xp mode. I am running on a toshiba t130 which is equipped with a non hardware assisted virtualization processor. I have pressed ahead with the installation of windows 7 and the xp mode etc on advise from toshiba and microsoft. This now represents a significant investment of time and money bot of which are in short supply. Please do not now tell me that hav is essential - contrary to current documentation etc.

Questions :-
1. I have no tools tab on my installation of the xp mode within the virtual machine. Is this because there is no hav present on this machine? Obviously all the tutorials etc refer to this.
2. If this is the case please can someone direct me to correct document for the windows 7 virtual pc and xp mode where hav is not available. - I do not actually believe that any such documentation exists.

3. Please can some one explain how to add a printer to xp mode. I have been through a zillion forums where every one states this is as easy as falling off a log - but to my extreme frustration no one actually explains how this is done. Indeed at this time i do not believe that it can be achieved.

4. In the absence of any ability to print directly from applications invoked from the xp mode what alternative process is available.

Wireless Printing

I have a new hp laptop connected to an hp ps1315 printer and another new hp laptop (both with windows 7) connected through a wireless network. I have been able to print wirelessly for a couple of months, but all of a sudden, the printer shows "offline" on the wireless laptop, but "online" on the connected laptop. Restarting everything seemed to work the first time this occurred, but will not work now. Is there a way to set the wireless laptop to "printer online"?

Network Printing

I have a pc running 32 bit vista with a usb connection to my printer. It is connected wirelessly to my home network. It prints fine via usb. I have a new laptop running 64 bit windows 7. It also prints fine connected usb to the printer. When i try to wireless print over my home network, my print job does nothing. The so called network printer can be added on the laptop in the add printer wizard. The host machine has the 64 bit drivers installed for the windows 7 laptop.could it be a port issue? What port should the laptop have assigned to connect to the printer attached to the host machine on the network?

Printing On Network Printer

I upgraded 2 desktop pcs from vista to win 7. Each pc has its own printer directly attached. Prior to upgrading, both pcs could print to either printer. After upgrading, one pc can print to both but the other can print only the printer directly attached however, the printer on the other machine is visible when checking devices on the network. I have gone through checking network names, sharing, reinstalling drivers, deleting and reinstalling the printer with no success. I've even attempted to establish a "home group" but am unable to do so. Any suggestions?

Printer Not Printing Over Network

I saw a question similar to mine but not quite the same issue. My main desktop is running win7 pro and my laptops and other desktop are running win xp pro. I have set up a work network not a home network, per instructions from a friend in it. All other computers can see the printer and print jobs get spooled to the main computer. The jobs arrive but do not print. Just to clarify, i can print just fine from the main computer. I know there is a tutorial on here for this issue, but the graphics are no longer present, so it's rather difficult to check what the settings should be.

Photo Printing Programs

I have had really just a few problems with window 7, one of which i'm coming to find out is the lack of the ability to print 4x6 single photo prints. With windows xp and my epson rx595 i was able to print any size under the sun i wanted to. With windows 7, all the compatible programs now will not allow me to print a single 4x6. I went to the epson website and downloaded an updater for windows 7. Still i am unable to print a single 4x6.

I can print 2 4x6's or even better yet 3 4x6's on one sheet of photo paper. This isn't what i want to do, some times yes but i want to use single 4x6 paper so it's easier to print and give out the photos to family. The other way, printing 3 on one sheet, i have to cut it and that takes away time that i could be spending with my granddaughter!

Envelope Printing Issue

When i try to print an envelope in word 2007, the default printing style comes up as  "headings+" and that seems to be why the address appears as double spaced on the window (and on the envelope) rather than single spaced. The double spaced address will not fit onto my envelope if i leave it as double spaced, plus it just looks bad. How can i get the spacing to revert to single. I've tried changing the default style but that will not adjust it. There are not a lot of options on the envelope print screen.

Network Printing Problem

I recently installed windows 7 over vista on the computer to which my hp all in one printer and my new linksys wireless n gigabit router are attached. I have another xp pro computer wired to the router. I also have two laptops running windows 7, one running xp pro and a desktop computer with xp pro that all at different times access the home network wirelessly.

Only the two computers wired to the router can print. All other computers either show the printer offline or an error occurred during print. The network is operating fine otherwise. The printer does not show up on the network but it does show shared under the printer's properties. The printer is a hp psc all-in one 2210 that everyone could print to prior to installing windows 7.

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Hp Psc 2510 Printing Issue

My laptop can only print on the networked, via o2 wireless box, printer if my desktop is switched on. I used to be able to print even if it was switched off, so long as o2 box was still on. I have recently changed both my computers, however, the o2 wireless box is the same. With windows xp on both computers i could connect to my hp psc 2510 even if the desktop which has a usb connection to the printer was switched off. The printer has an ethernet connection to the o2 box.

When i try to set up the printer, it will only show up via the desktop computer. I'm not that computer literate, and so have quickly run out of idea's. As far as i can see, everything is set up for sharing, and i have tried troubleshooting, to no avail.
