WV: Word Viewer 97-2000 /p Command Parameter Doesn't Print Document


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word Viewer 97-2000


When you use the /p switch on the command line to start Word Viewer 97-2000, the document is not automatically printed as in earlier versions of Word Viewer.


To work around this problem, use either of the following methods.

Method 1: Print from Word Viewer 97-2000

In Microsoft Word Viewer 97-2000, click Print on the File menu.

Method 2: Print from Word Viewer 7.1

  1. Remove Word Viewer 97-2000:
    1. Quit all Windows applications.
    2. Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
    3. Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.
    4. On the Install/Uninstall tab, click to select "Microsoft Word Viewer 97," and then click Add/Remove. In the Microsoft Word Viewer 97 Setup dialog box, click Remove All.
  2. Install Microsoft Word Viewer 7.1:
    1. On the Microsoft Office 97 (Microsoft Word 97) CD-ROM, open the Valupack folder.
    2. Open the Wordview folder.
    3. Double-click Wd95vw71.exe.
  3. In Word, save your document as "Word document 6.0/95 (*.doc)", and then close your document.
  4. Click the Start menu, and then click Run.
  5. In the Open box, type the path to Wordview.exe, followed by the /p parameter, and then the path and name of the document you want Word Viewer 7.1 to print.

    For example, type: "C:\Program Files\WordView\Wordview.exe" /p "c:\filename.doc"


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
