After installing v.1.2.2 replacing 1.2.1, printing test page from windows printer properties dialog fails. Printing test page from pdfcreator print monitor succeeds. Printing from firefox e.g. also fails. Is a reboot required for this to work?
It appears that this problem is caused by failing to either connect to the existing printer monitor/driver/port or to replace it. Deleting the printer from windows, and uninstalling pdfcreator from windows, then reinstalling pdfcreator results in a working installation. Also, during the installation process pdfcreator installer reports it is installing the printer monitor/driver/port.
Meanwhile, the new installation still defaults to A4 paper, leading to a hard to debug issue when printing to letter paper, as almost all US users will want to do.
