Printing problems- VW 9.5.3, Epson, and Mac

Question

Hi. I'm running Vectorworks 9.5.3 using MacOS 9.0.4 on a beige G3. Ever since upgrading to VW 9.5.x I am no longer able to print anything with my Epson Stylus Color 850. I always get an error stating that a connection to the printer is not detected.

However, I can print using this printer with any other application (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Appleworks, etc.) as long as I haven't opened up Vectorworks. After I start up Vectorworks, printing stops in all my applications giving me the error I mentioned above. Has anyone else experienced this and is there a solution out there? I really need to print from Vectorworks.

I have tried downloading and re-installing my printer drivers to no avail. Does Vectorworks 9.5.x not support printing in MacOS 9.0.4?

Thanks.

You shouldn't need to update from 904, but it certainly isn't a bad idea to update to 9.2.

Check to make sure you have Carbon Lib installed.

What was teh previous verison of VW that you were able to print from?

I have CarbonLib 1.5 installed on my machine. The last version I could print with was VW 9.0.1.

Katie,

Can you shed any more light on this issue? I posted the information that you requested. In addition, I have the 3D Power Pack installed as well, if that helps you out. I really need to print from Vectorworks, this is killing my productivity! Thanks.
