I have a two part problem:
I'm using Crystal Reports 2013 and having some problems setting up the printer for this report. I'm getting the following error whenever I open up the report:
"This report uses an invalid printer. The default printer will be used instead."
I searched online and one of the suggestions was to try setting the margins automatically which didn't work. I do not want to set it to No Printer and definitely do not want to set this specific printer as the default on the server either. This report will be one of many that will be printing to different printers. The strange thing is that if I change the Name of the printer to use the hostname, it seems to take it. Anything else like "TestPrinter" won't be accepted. I have another printer (same model) where I can call it whatever I want (including names with spaces) and don't have problems. Does using the proper driver have anything to do with this or Crystal Reports won't even know to check this? I'm using generic drivers for this printer and the other identical model one which doesn't seem to cause an error when I open up the report.
My second problem is how do I set up my printer to work with BusinessObjects Server 4.0? I went to the Applications > Crystal Reports Configuration > Printer List and couldn't get any of my reports printed. These were using other printer models which I used the correct drivers for. Is Printer Name, the Shared Name or local printer name (assigned by me manually on the server) for the printer or is it the hostname? For Printer Connection, do I use the Shared name (\\path\sharedprintername)?
