Printing problems- VW 9.5.3, Epson, and Mac



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?

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?

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.
