get 'save the file as an xps document.'..won't print
My printer is connected, printer icon is in tray, and it is recognized by my Belkin router manager-- but when I try to print I get a screen that says 'save the file as an *.xps document'...and it won't print. I don't want to save it - I want it to print.

I ran a search for 'xps' and the list came up with XPS Viewer and XPS Viewer Manifest. Both are located in C:\Windows\system32\xpsviewer. This has been after I downloaded something to scan my drivers for outdated ones. When I discovered that you have to buy the software I uninstalled it. I never had the problem before that.

It is on my Dell laptop, running XP Home Edition.

Can you print a test page?
What printer is selected in the printer dialog box? (Almost certainly the XPS document writer)
Select "Print" from the file menu to see these options.

I did get it somewhat resolved. I have 2 printers--a regular HP and a mulitfunction Canon. The Canon was set as the default. Switching the HP as the default eliminated that problem. I'm still trying to set up the Canon because it's a wireless and I can fax from it. No success yet, but because of your suggestion I do have the HP operating through the router manager. Thank you.
