Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows

My printer will print a photograph, print from the web but has stopped printing from Open Office. Until a few days ago I did not have any problems.
I installed the latest Open Office version this morning hoping this might solve the problem but it hasn't.

Try this. Disconnect your printer. Uninstall it. Reboot Windows; when Windows is finished rebooting (give it a few minutes), plug in the printer to the computer and turn the printer on. It should e detected and Windows will reinstall it.

Thank you. I followed your suggestions but unfortunately it still won't print anything from Open Office.

This may be to do with OO being 32 bit and your Windows being 64 bit. I don't use any modern Windows, so cannot advise further on a solution.

A workaround is to /File /Export as PDF and print your OO files from your PDF reader. This at least gets you printout while awaiting advice on a solution.
