Outlook 2010 crashing when printing

Which of the adhering to retains the information it's storing when the device power is turned off?

Greetings all

I recenly sent a COMPUTER to one of our offices up nation ready for usage by our new employee. Two days earlier she reported that Office 2010 was crashing once she prints (Excel, word and also outlook). I have checked out this and also deserve to gain a crash report if necessary, however tbelow is not a lot help tright here.

Here is what has actually been done

She discussed that previously that morning she had done a couple of prints without any kind of problems so my first though was to updates - No updays ocurred.The second was driver so I remounted printer, then printer and driver - No result.I included another printer from the website wright here I sit - Publish error, yet no crash.Publish to pdf (on local machine) - No problemsRepair on Office 2010 - No resultsReinstevery one of office 2010 - not yet done

Any thoughts or corrective action with this software?



The problem is addressed. It was an incompatibility through the chauffeurs as assumed. The interesting solution though seems to have come from microsoft.I had actually set up the brand-new drivers through no avail. I then enabled the Device and also printer area to obtain even more information from the printers.

A bit while after this when re-attempting the vehicle drivers, it registered two versions of the very same driver. Tried the newest one and Barabing-baraboom Hey presto, it operated.

The motorists downloaded prior to were from the manufacturers site. It stays exciting that Microsoft would certainly have their own driver that functions and also the manufacturer does not. Microsoft Windows has a cool attribute - Who knew?

Thanks for everyone that helped.

Do various other programs print OK? If they do not I"d suspect the printer vehicle drivers exclusively.

We have some printing problems below with Office 2010 that are most definietly problems in between Office and the printer motorists.

Installing the very same set of drivers will not type the problem below and also I guess will not tright here either, if you deserve to then acquire updated vehicle drivers, if you can not you can try older drivers.

In some instances we"ve resorted to printing to the XPS printer or conserving the document as PDF and printing those - not an excellent work-related about yet at least the work-related gets printed.


Sounds favor Publish Drivers. Out of intrest, its not the HP Universal Print Drivers is it?


Your best selecting something favor HP Laserjet III driver (supplied via Windows 7)

Its a really basic print driver that functions on a lot of printers. It must narrow dvery own the difficulty to being the print driver your making use of.

The OutlPrnt file can be corrupted? (The file wright here Outlook keeps its printing style settings) Don"t understand if Word and Excel has the same form of file, yet offer it a try?

Try to rename this to .old while Outlook is closed (check taskmanager to view if its really closed ;)) You deserve to locate the file her:


Windows Vista and also Windows 7 C:Users\%username%AppDataRoamingMicrosoftOutlook

Windows XP C:Documents and also Settings\%username%Application DataMicrosoftOutlook

Let me recognize how it goes! :)

Liberian: The driver seems to fail ONLY from office prints. It appears to print ok from various other programs, yet will certainly double examine aacquire.

James: the machine is an NRG MP171 not from the HP array of tools. I favor your idea of downgrading though which offers me one more concept to try.

T.Media: I don"t think this file would be the issue unless it was regarded a common file. The corrupt file suggestion though enligh10s me to somepoint I have actually not yet done on the PC - I have actually not hard deleted the printer vehicle drivers rom the pc. Gonna provide that a go


Will let you know

One various other point we"ve tried to get round printing worries with 2010 is to conserve the document in the old XP / 2003 format.

Not great bereason it destroys any of the brand-new style content the user may have actually favored to make use of.

Glad I can at leastern offer some (potentially) useful suggestions.

The trouble is fixed. It was an incompatibility through the motorists as thought. The interesting solution though seems to have actually come from microsoft.I had set up the brand-new drivers with no avail. I then allowed the Device and also printer section to acquire more information from the printers.

A bit while after this when re-attempting the motorists, it registered 2 versions of the very same driver. Tried the newest one and also Barabing-baraboom Hey presto, it worked.

The motorists downloaded before were from the manufacturers website. It continues to be interesting that Microsoft would certainly have actually their own driver that functions and the manufacturer does not. Microsoft Windows has a cool function - Who knew?

Thanks for everyone that assisted.

Does anyone object to me marking my very own article as the finest answer? All it states is that this is he solution to anyone who has the same concern.

If tright here is an objection, I will certainly remove it automatically...

I had the same confusing nightmare. From each machine on clients netjob-related, I printed a test page from the printer in Windows. The printout proved me the printer driver versions installed on each machine. I hard rerelocated each printer driver, then applied the last printer driver so all devices were making use of the latest version. Presto, Office 2010 prints without crashing intermittently. I recognize, offer it a week something else will go wrong... yet that"s what keeps us employed :)

Refounding the Publish Spooler functioned for me.

Start > Run > Services.msc > Print Spooler > Restart Service

I just experienced this error this day. I tried all the above. It happens in Calendar - monthly, on a certain user Calendar on user A"s PC. I discovered out that user doesn"t usage Outlook for his exadjust account and also provides Me.com to access and also create appointments.

Is Me.com and any other Apple product bring about this?

Greetings Angel

I am not familiar via Me.com so can"t comment there, however I will attempt help if I deserve to. Your summary over is not as clear as one would hope, but I will assume it was the exact same problem that I had.

Have you already determined the trouble location by determining that it is printing specifically from calender that crashes the program? You would certainly perform this by printing from other programs to check out if the fault happens tright here also.What printer are you using?What are the page settings for the page you are printing? In South Africa we usage A4 as the web page size (SA Standard), yet the software application sometimes defaults to "Letter" (US Standard) which reasons our printers not to print. To check, usage print preview and examine web page settings.Is your machine totally updated?

Let me recognize :)

I have a trouble that may be similar to what others are suffering, but possibly not precisely the very same. I cannot print from ANY MS Office 2010 regimen. When choosing Data > Publish the programs instantly hang. The only method to recuperate is to kill the regime.The print dialog for selecting print devices NEVER even shows up, it hangs before that dialog box is presented.I have actually set default printer to MSFT XPS. -> made no differenceTrying "quick print" on a Word doc (Right Click > Print) launches Word, however the program hangs at the "Starting" dialog boxI have actually turned off Print in Background in Word -> made no difference

I cannot get to any "Options" from PPT as the regime hangs as soon as selecting "Options"

I have run a rephelp on the MS Office installation -> made no difference.I"m thining that there is some systemic Office printer engine issue at play right here, fairly than a printer driver problem. I have actually been using the same printers for YEARS without concern. I can not even get to the printer dialog in any kind of of the programs to choose a various printer.
