It acts like it's printing from a temp file that is blank. I've restarted and i've installed all the IE updates. I've checked the margins and the print preview displays a blank page as well. I've printed from IE a million times and for some reason today it quit working, it will only print PDF and word files.
I have a HP CM1312nfi and HP Laserjet 4100 both have ip address

Temp folder issue

by robo_dev In reply to Computer will only blank ...

If IE shows a blank print preview and prints blank pages. (footer of the preview shows "file://C:\Windows\Temp\whatever.htm").

Check your C:\Windows\Temp folder and make sure the logged in user can read the folder.

Creat a new temp folder (%USERPROFILE%\Temp) and set that as the value for the User environment variables TEMP and TMP.

After a restart of IE to pickup the temp folder change, the print preview showed correctly and the user can now print from IE7.
