I have the same probleme since the WinXP SP3 update.
Is there any workaround?
I had the same problem with a user. Found a link that talks about stale printer or bad network printer drivers were causing the delay of the print dialog box. I deleted the unessary printers and also deleted the drivers from the print Server Properties. In this case it was a HP 1700(network) and a Brother (local) printer. Problem went away after that.
Hope that helps,
Thx for help! I've deleted network printers which doesn't exists anymore. Now it seems to work again.
I'm having the same slow acrobat print dialog box problem with Windows XP SP3 and Acrobat Reader 8.1.3. I have deleted the network printers but it is still slow (3 - 5 minutes).
I am having the same issue, has anyone discovered anything yet? I am using reader 9 on XP PRO SP3 and experiencing the same slowness to print, but when we run it from our 2003 Terminal Server it comes up super quick.
I am having the same problem with a user. It takes forever for the print dialogue box to come up, and between printing multiple pages of a pdf. This only happens with adobe. I have tried to revert back to service pack 2, and delete the printers that were not necessary. Any info would be helpful.
Removing old printers definitely works. If you have network printers that you do not want to delete as you use them when connected to other networks, mark them as "offline" so they are ignored when acrobat queries the available printers. To mark as "offline", right click on the printer and select "offline".
Hope this helps.
Ok, so deleting the unused printers did work. I still am suffering a pause between printing each page of a multiple paged pdf. It only occurs on pdf. It takes an extra 10 seconds before the next page will print. Any ideas?
Hi, I found this to work
type the following and press enter after each command:
del arc*.tmp /S
What the command does is that it deletes acrobat temp files that are stored on your pc, which slows down acrobat printing.
I found this info at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/403/kb403914.html towards the bottom of the page
Hope it helps
