Can't print to windows printers.

I have recently updated the Microstation CONNECT software to update 13, 

I can now not print to the Windows printers, I can only print to Microstation Pdf. 

The printers show up in the drop down box but when I try and select them nothing happens.

  • when you type control p

    you get the dialog for plotting and it  looks like this yes

    1. is the system printer.plt.cfg  the tells mstn to use the default windows printer  in your pc user  profile for windows

    2. lets you choose between  windows printers to use

    3. is the path and name to the windows printer

    4. icon telling me its windows printer and you an configure the settings direct of the windows printer settings  as this opens the window printer from the control panel of windows not mstn..

    personally I don't bother with windows printer I use the Bentley  pdf driver and  print to pdf then view the pdf and then I might send the pdf to the printer.. this saves a lot wasted prints and as I will supply all my clients with pdfs not paper I need to see what they will see on the screen...in pdf viewers
