      Summary

      MS XPS Document Writer won't allow the use of other printers with FileMaker Pro v 11.03

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.03 Pro Advanced

      Operating system version

      Windows 7 64 bit Professional

      Description of the issue

      When executing a script with a Print Setup() step and the MS XPS Document Writer installed, it doesn't matter what other printer I specify, when the Print[No dialog] step executes, it always goes to the MS XPS Document, whether another printer is the FM default or the Windows default or both.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      As above

      Expected result

      Changing printers whether from the File > Print Setup menu or from the Print Setup() script step, should change the printer!

      Actual result

      Microsoft XPS Document Writer takes over and only allows output to go there!

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None

      Configuration information

      Workaround
