Printing only works under Administrator account

Posted: 11-10-2008, 03:59 AM

I insalled freshly downloaded drivers for a Brother MFC-215C from th
brother site onto a Vista Box (vista drivers from Brother). Plugged th
USB in when asked etc. The printer says its ready. However the onl
thing I can print is a test page and only when selecting "Run a
Administrator" from the right click menu on the printer driver ico
when going into the "properties". When going straigh into the propertie
and printing a test page under the normal user account nothing print
and applications can not print either. Not even an error message i
shown and no documents pile up in the print queque
What is wrong??

I just brought the new computer with vista. after I installed the compatiable
driver downloaded from brothers site, I found I can print some programs but
not other like PDF file. I can print micros soft excel file, but not word
file. It is very frustrated.
pls let me know if you find a solution. thanks.

I have a similar problem, I did same as you downloading software from brother
site for MFC-215C. the printing job would not be done. What I did make it
work is to install the printer by using adding printer and following the
instruction of window vista, choose to instal using vista drivers not driver
from internet. I made it work now by this way. you can try it as well.
