As a reminder, I had reported that a "Floating Point" error was generated when I attempted to print to a shared printer (HP2600N) on my home LAN setup if the PC requesting the print DID NOT have the full drivers installed on it. But, other shared printers printed just fine. Only the one PC with the full driver install could print to the HP2600.Here's how I have my system setup at home:
PC "A" is my main unit, server if you may. I do not use it for web surfing at all. On this PC "A" I installed all peripherals like printers and their respective drivers on it, external drives and all major software like CAD, Office packages, Photo editors and others. That's where I do the intensive work. Some folders and printers are shared with other PCs on the LAN setup. PC "B" and others are used for other purposes, mostly internet. That way if I pick up a virus on any of these PCs that was not detected and forces a complete system rebuild, I have minimum work to reinstall software. The large registered/expensive software are still active in PC "A". OK, back to the issue. All other PCs (excluding PC "A"), do not have printer drivers installed on them, because WinXP (my OS) installs something, I don't know what, enough to access the peripherals like printers installed on PC "A" via the LAN setup. I hope you understood this winded write up. Following the installation of SCREENSHOT CAPTOR, I could only print the image on the HP2600N printer from PC "A", which has the printer drivers.Behind the scene:
Mouser have been good enough and patient to correspond via PMs trying to resolve this issue with numerous patches that did not have satisfactory results. He never gave up and neither did I.
:-[I finally decided to venture into other "Print Screen" programs to emulate the issue I have. Happy to report that the issue is related to the Printer family I have, NOT SSC. These are HP1600 (USB only), HP2600 & HP2600N (USB and RJ45 for LAN). All other printers I tested can print from "ScreenShot Captor" from any PC on the LAN network without the necessary drivers installed.
So I installed the drivers for the HP2600N on these other PCs and I can print as required from SSC.
MOUSER tried to resolve the issue, but without these printers on hand it would be difficult. Again I thank you MOUSER for the program and help you provided and hope my input can help someone else.
