Publisher 2: Can't Change Printer Setup if UseDefaultPrSetup=1

Publisher 2: Can't Change Printer Setup if UseDefaultPrSetup=1

Q106678


-------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher version 2.0
-------------------------------------------------------------------

SYMPTOMS
========

Publisher 2.0 is unable to use any changes to the default printer if the
line "UseDefaultPrSetup=1" had been added to your MSPUB.INI. The only way
to change the default printer is by using the Printers option in Control
Panel.

RESOLUTION
==========

In the [printing] section of the MSPUB.INI file, delete or remark out the
following line:

   UseDefaultPrSetup=1

To remark out this line, so that it will be ignored, place a semicolon at
the beginning of the line. For example:

   ;UseDefaultPrSetup=1

NOTE: The MSPUB.INI file is located in the WINDOWS directory.

MORE INFORMATION
================

If Publisher 2.0 is installed over an installation of Publisher 1.0a and
the line "UseDefaultPrSetup=1" had been added to your MSPUB.INI file, or if
this line has been added after installing Publisher 2.0, then changes to
the printer setup will not be recognized by the printer. These changes may
include orientation, resolution, and so on. The changes must be made from
Control Panel.
