I just installed Studio 8 (including Flash Paper 2), and
nothing can print to Flash Paper. It shows up as a printer, and it
installed the annoying toolbar in Office, but no Office program, no
browser, not even a simple text editor can print to Flash Paper.
The Flash Paper process starts, but immediately freezes and then
crashes the program that attempted to print to it. I have
un-installed and re-installed it, and it never works. I haven't
seen any mention of this freezing problem in the forums or through
a Google search - anyone else encounter this?
I also just installed Studio 8 which includes Flash Paper 2
and I am having the same exact problem with Word documents. It just
freezes, says Word is preparing to background print the document,
and then it will just stay there doing nothing. Looks like it's
working but nothing happens. I left it there FOR AN HOUR and it
still wouldn't complete the conversion. I have also reinstalled it.
I am running WinXP and Word 2003.
It seems the Contribute 3.11 uses an installer that botches
the Flash Paper 2 printer driver installation. Follow the
directions in the Tech Note above to manually re-install the Flash
Paper 2 printer drivers (using the old Flash Paper installer), and
all should be well.
I did this exactly as described, and Flash Paper started
working right away - I didn't even need to re-boot. Note, however,
that this note assumes you have installed the Studio 8 products in
the default location (C:\program files\...) If you installed in a
different location, you'll need to modify the Tech Note
instructions to reflect the location of the referenced Flash Paper
