I have made an XPS document in Microsoft Word (Print --> print to XPS Writer). On Windows 7 (64 bit) machine I can open this file in XPSViewer or IE and send it to an actual printer, where the XPS document is successfully printed. All testing so far has been done on Networked printers.
On my windows XP (32 bit) machine, I can create an XPS document with Microsoft Word, but my attempts to print the XPS document to an actual printer are unsuccessful. This machine indicates that the job was successfully sent to the printer, but the printer does not print the document, and printer logs indicate that the job was not received. I am attempting to print to the exact same printers from both the XP and the Win7 machine. Attempting to print non XPS documents still works fine on the XP machine.
What could be missing from the XP machine that would cause this kind of behavior? I have .Net 4.0 framework installed.
