Successful Printing of postal reports on Windows 8

In order to successfully print your postal reports, or any report to PDF, you need to follow these instructions to make changes in the registry before printing will work.

Start the registry editor by typing in Regedit in your search bar.

In the registry editor, click on HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG.
Click on SOFTWARE.
Right click on AccuZIP PDF Converter and choose Permissions.


Assign Full Control to every group or username in the list. This will allow the registry to be written to by the AccuZIP PDF Converter, which is required in order to prevent errors when you attempt to print.

After doing this, follow these instructions:

Exit AccuZIP6.

Go into the Printers area of the Control Panel.

Make sure your default printer (NOT the AccuZIP PDF Converter) is online and ready.

Double click on AccuZIP PDF Converter and delete any jobs.

Right-click on AccuZIP PDF Converter, select Printer Properties.

Click on the Advanced tab.

Click Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster

Uncheck Enable advanced printing features.

Click on the Ports tab.

Click on Add Port...

Under Available Port Types, click on Local Port.

Click on the New Port button.

Give it a name of PDFPort

Click OK, then click Close.

Click Apply and OK.

Launch AccuZIP6 and you're ready to print.
