Some applications on Windows 7 will not print to printer on Mac OS
I have a HP PSC 3550 connected to my Mac and I have successfully added this printer to Windows 7.
I am able to print a test page from Windows 7. I am able to print from Openoffice. However, I cannot print from Wordpad or Notepad.
This is the event log entry:
The document Untitled - Notepad, owned by Mark, failed to print on printer \\MACS-COMPUTER\HP PSC 2350 series. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.
Data type: NT EMF 1.008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 1184. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \\SEGO. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 0. The operation completed successfully.
Note that if I connect the printer directly to my Windows 7 machine I can print from Wordpad and Notepad.

Yes. The HP site says that the driver is already part of Windows 7. I tried connecting the printer directly to my Windows 7 machine and Windows is able to find the driver and the printer works fine.
But when connected to the Mac OS machine only Openoffice programs can print from Windows.
