Network printer stopping Microsoft Office working


Alboy114

Likes # 0

Hi. I have a desktop pc-windows xp with a Dell Laser printer connected via a port. Have Office XP 2003. Have wi-fi and in addition a lap-top with windows 7and office 2007. Two pcs are networked fine- lap-top can see the printer,make it default printer and print fine from Word Pad etc.

However when the printer is made the default printer on the laptop the office 2007 packages on the lap-top will not open at all. Opening in safe mode and getting them reconfigured does not work. Have correct drivers on both pcs for printer to use windows 7. Can you help please. Do not want to uninstall and reinstall Office 2007 as that would be a lot of ag and am not convinced that would work. Thanks very much. Alan
