HP problems with Postershop 4.5

greenspun.com : LUSENET : PosterShop Talk : One Thread

I just upgraded from Postershop 4.0 to 4.5 and now have the following problem:

Each time when I try to print to a HP Designjet 2500 CP I get the following error:

"An error occured while initializing printer communication port for job "printfile.onx" "

I have a Encad ProE also connected to the same port (I use a switchbox) and this works fine. When I used Postershop 4.0 I never had a problem printing to both the HP and Encad printers. I use the following system : Compaq proffesional workstation 6000, PII 266 Mhz, 128 Mb RAM, Windows NT 4.0 with servicepack 5.

Thanks, richard

I forgot to mention that I hooked up the printers to the parallel port (LPT1).

Did you change HP2500 in "Device"-menue?...(in german it4s Gerdteeinstellung) from Postscript -> HPGL2 to drive HP with an external RIP? You have to do so!
