Vista client not printing images

This is a seemingly odd problems. Using the Vista client, I try to print a
photo image file from a network directory and the printers (any network
printer I choose) prints a blank page. If I copy the photo image to a
local directory and print from there. It prints. ... What setting on the
client is not allowing the image to print? I'm thinking some caching
setting or something?

Re: Vista client not printing images

Just an update on this. I can also NOT create a pdf file on a network
drive. The message is "cannot write to drive". Of course, I can read and
write other types of files to the network, and have the privileges to do
so. I have the stupid vista user authentication nonsense turned off. ...
Is there some trick with this Vista client that is not allowing privileges
to work. This is a NW6.5 sp3 server with NSS volumes.

Re: Vista client not printing images

Hi Dave,

I just tested all this out on my PC. I'm running Vista Enterprise x64 and I've seen none of these problems. I've also tested on a Vista Ultimate x32 without issue. I am running Netware 6.5 SP4.

Re: Vista client not printing images

Well, I'm some making progress. The Vista client started blue screen
crashing based on something in the login script mapping to drives. Perhaps
it did not like the syntax which was perfectly acceptable to WinXp and the
Client for XP. So, I re-wrote the login scripts. No more crashing blue
death screens. Can now save pdf files to the network. Can print images
from the network using Paint. However, Windows Photo Gallery will print
images from the network for any size except 8 x 10. Go figure. Must be a
bug in Windows Photo Gallery.

Re: Vista client not printing images

Dave,

what are the details that you have re-written in your login scripts?

Re: Vista client not printing images

Old mapping script that did not work:
MAP ROOT Q:=LH1/VOL2:WORK#2
then I tried this that did not work:
MAP ROOT Q:=\LH1VOL2work#2

New script that Vista seems happy with (so far) looks like this:
MAP Q:=LH1/VOL2:WORK#2

Re: Vista client not printing images

One more fact. On any network directory, even when admin with full rights,
a directory name cannot be renamed.

Re: Vista client not printing images

Also, notwithstanding that the network directories appear to be mapped via
the login script, directory names that cannot be modified when the attempt
is made to the mapped drive, CAN be modified if you walk the tree down in
Network Places.
