I'm having issues sending a simple print job to an Lanier LD528c using PCL 5c as the driver. If i use PCL 6 as the driver it sends the print job to the right printer, but the settings (Input tray, duplex, output tray, paper type, etc) are not correct. It always defaults to the printer defaults (tray 1 - White paper, No-Duplex, Plain type, 8.5 / 11). No matter how many times i create a new printer and store the printersetup code, the print jobs do the samething. If i try to goto PCL 5c driver, it sends the print job no where.

I've attached a simple screen shot of the layout i'm testing from. The print button prints the layout that you see on the correct printer ID. The HP's work fine, but the Laniers do not.

Also please note, we had a Lanier LD228c using PCL 5c before this LD528c and it worked fine.

    Sorry forgot to include a few bits of information. Both the HP and Lanier (new and old) are setup on each workstation as network printers, direct to the printer (using TCP/IP).

    The system i'm testing this on is Windows XP Sp3 full updated via windows updates. The Plugin version and filemaker version are in the subject.

    Nevermind problem solved, had to use PCL 6 driver, and fix my restored printer script.
