    Last Windows update disabled our Microsoft PDF writer.


    Hi,

    I am new to the group. My name is Sandra, I am new to a role - Administrator/Network Manager. The computers in this office are stand alone and do not remote into one virtual location.

    I have tried Control Panel, Program and Features , and turning off and on the Windows PDF but it is not working. Has anyone else ran into this issue or any suggestions to get this back up. Please note: my manger does not want to use alternate program (PF995 or CutePDF) and also does not want to un-do the Windows update.

    :)

  2. Microsoft PDF and Document Writer not working

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update and apologies for late response.

    Please refer to:

    Reader app for Windows: FAQ

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps to resolve XPS document writer issues.


    • Right click on empty area on Desktop, click on Create and select New text document.

    • Open the created text document and type some text (input text as you desire, save and close text file)

    • Again open the text document, click on File tab and click on Print.

    • Select the Microsoft XPS writer and click on Print button.

    • You may select the location to save the file.
    Hope this helps.

    Microsoft PDF and Document Writer not working

    Hi Scuzie,

    We need more information.

    • When you say use 'Microsoft PDF or Document Writer', are you referring to open or save or copy?
    • When you say other options, what options are you referring to?
    • Are you referring to XPS document writer?

    If it is a non-Microsoft product, we support with the installation of the product, any issues related to its working you need to check with Adobe or product manufacturer.
