Re: Publisher Print Error: Cannot Load Printer Driver
I'm experiencing the exact problem you described, along with a multitude of

problem, but the Publisher gives me "Cannot Load Printer Driver". For those
of us who are ignorant about some things (meaning me) could you describe in
detail exactly what steps you took that produced the desired results.
