Windows 7: Printing multiple pdfs at once

30 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Ok I firing up the network now. I'll tell you if I have the same issue within 15 the next 15 minutes.

If I can recreate it, I might be able to fix it for you. *fingers crossed*.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I ran two tests.
1. Test one - batch print 3 pdf's hosted on Server2008 to a local printer hosted on WINDOWS 7= SUCCESS
2. Test two - batch print 3 pdf's hosted on Server2008 to a network printer hosted = SUCCESS

I really can't recreate your issue.... and I was hoping to.

Some thoughts:
1. Is it unique to your network or is it just that PC? Can you please try to batch print from another machine or two if you have different OS' and see if that works. If the problem is only that WIn7 box then it's likely to be corruption with the context menu, printing, or PDF install. Less likely is that a security policy is not letting that machine or user print.
2. Does it work under another user? - This will narrow it down to a user profile or security policy issue.
3. Does it work under the Domain administrator user? This should rule out the users (but not the machine for security policy's).
4. If you share to another machine or server on the network does the same issue occur? This may tell us if the server itself is the issue.
5. Is every machine on the network effected? - This may tell us if it's a global policy lockout or if a localized running app unique to your network is responsible. 3rd party apps such as payroll applications can share (or steal) windows print functionality. If you suspect this, then install a fresh machine (even a virtual machine will work), only install a PDF reader and a printer, turn on network discovery and see if your issue occurs.

All we can do now is cross out the symptoms until we are left with the problem.

I would also just double check that the print spooler is working on the server, the printer, and your win7 box.

I'm off now it's almost 2am. Goodluck.

Add your server/computer/network to Trusted

Try adding your shared computer IP or computer name into the Local Intranet sites in Internet Options.

open Internet Explorer | Tools | Internet Options | Security | Local Intranet

of course you can also get there via Control Panel.

Limitation on number of prints

You are limited to printing max of 15 PDFs at once. More than that it won't show you the print option.

Printing multiple files of different file type
In Windows XP, Explorer I was able to select multiple files of different file types, right click and select print. In Win 7 64 bit print is not a choice when I select multiple files of different types. Is there a way to make this work or is it just an option that was left out of Win 7 for some...
