Océ Windows Printer Driver concept What is an Océ Windows Driver? Definition The Océ Windows drivers can be used from any Windows application to print to your Océ printer. They translate the data into graphics languages and enable your printer to generate monochrome and color outputs. Océ Windows Printer Driver The Océ Windows Printer Driver (WPD) translates the data into HP-GL/2 (graphics language designed by Hewlett-Packard). It includes the Océ Ticket (specific Océ Job Ticket or RCF (Remote Control Format) header), a set of information sent to the printer on how, when and where to print the job. 10 Chapter 1 Introduction Workflow to print using an Océ Windows Driver Workflow to print using an Océ Windows Driver Purpose This procedure describes the recommended steps to follow to print using an Océ Windows Driver. Before you begin Make sure that you previously installed the driver and defined the default 'Device settings'. Note: Check that the printer units are the same in the application and in the driver Units on page 49. How to print a drawing 1. Create the document in your application. 2. Select File - Page Setup or File - Print Setup to: Select your printer. Define the document format for the selected printer by defining the 'Page size'. In the 'Page size' list you can select a standard 'Page size', or select a 'Custom size' previously registered (see Page size on page 59). 3. Display the application preview if the function is available. Note: The preview only takes into account the settings available in the application. It does not display the driver transformation settings ('Mirror', 'Rotation', 'Alignment', 'Shift'...). 4. Select File - Print to: send directly the document for printing. open 'Properties' to access the printer settings. Then you can modify the driver settings, attach a user identification to the output using the accounting option, define the number of copies, set the layout and image quality before printing. 11 Océ Windows Printer Driver 1.16 compatibility topics Check your compatibility Océ Windows Printer Driver 1.16 compatibility topics Operating System compatibility Océ Windows Printer Driver 1.16 is compatible with the following operating systems and environments: [1] Windows Vista (32-bit, 64-bit) Windows XP (32-bit, 64-bit) Windows XP (32-bit, 64-bit) Windows Terminal Server Windows 2000 Novell (NDPS-iPrint) Citrix Metaframe 3.x and Presentation Server 4.x Note: The 'Home' editions are not supported.

Definition The method used to install the driver depends on: Your network architecture. Where you got the installation files. Attributes This chapter guides you through the installation of the WPD software on a workstation. Once you have successfully installed the driver, see the configuration chapter for a full explanation of how to use the options and dialog boxes. Note: To get the installation process on a Print server, on Terminal Server, on Citrix MetaFrame server or on Presentation Server, consult the Connectivity Manual delivered on a CD with your printer. 26 Chapter 2 Installation and upgrade Install WPD - Before you begin Install WPD - Before you begin Note: For performance reasons, we recommend you to use the LPR Port instead of the default Standard TCP/IP Port. Contact your local network administrator and consult the Connectivity Manual delivered on a CD with your printer. Enable the LPR port For Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 platforms: Select 'Add or Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components - Other Network File and Print Services'. Install, if needed, the Print Services for Unix and enable this component. For Windows Vista platforms: Select 'Programs and Features - Turn Windows features on or off - Print Services'. Enable the LPR Port Monitor. Océ TDS version and Windows driver compatibility To make sure that you have selected the driver according to your printer version, follow the correct procedure (see Check your Océ TDS printer version on page 16). Then check in the compatibility table which is the correct driver to install (see Océ Windows Printer Driver 1.16 compatibility topics on page 12). Caution concerning the printer names If you are installing the Océ WPD driver on a Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/Vista platform: The printer name may include up to a maximum of 220 characters. Do not use special characters ('!', ',', '/'). 27 Define the correct installation method Define the correct installation method Definition According to your network architecture, you can use different methods to install the Océ Windows Printer Driver on a user workstation. Océ recommends you use: the 'Add (a) printer' method in a Client/Server configuration the 'Setup' method when the workstation is directly connected to the printer (peer to peer). Note: Contact your local network administrator to know your network configuration and to get information about the printer to address. Client /Server configuration: use the 'Add (a) printer' method In a Client/Server configuration, you connect the workstation to the print server. Océ recommends to: Use the 'Add Printer Wizard ' (see Install Océ WPD using the 'Add (a) printer' method on page 32) to install a 'Network printer'. As the wizard installs elements coming from the print server, make sure that the latest version of the driver is installed on the print server (contact your local system administrator). If you need to uninstall the printer, 'Delete' it (see Manual uninstall after a standard Windows 'Add Printer Wizard ' installation on page 43). Peer to peer configuration: use the 'Setup' method When the workstation is directly connected to the printer (through a network for example), Océ recommends to: Use the 'Setup' method, from the Océ Drivers Pack CD (see Install Océ WPD from the Océ Drivers Pack CD on page 31), or from the setup.exe file downloaded from the web (see Install WPD after a web download on page 29). If you need to uninstall the printer, remove it using the 'Add/Remove Programs' (s
