    Outlook 2016 - Microsoft Print to PDF


    When I try to use the Microsoft Print to PDF function on Outlook I get the message 'Printer not Ready' yet I can can print to any other printer from Outlook and I can print to the Microsoft Print to PDF driver from other applications.

    Anyone know why Outlook 2016 is having this issue?

    I know this is a very old thread but I am having similar issues and was wondering if you ever figured out a resolution to this?

    You can try to remove the Microsoft Print to PDF feature, reboot, and reinstall.

    Thanks for the reply, however i have done that but it didn't resolve my issue. I have run a repair on office and Uninstalled and reinstalled office. I Uninstalled and reinstalled the "printer" also. Ill keep messing around with it, if anyone has anything else to try ill be willing. Thanks!

    Would you happen to have Adobe Pro installed on this PC? If so it could be Adobe Pro is using the same port as the Microsoft Print to PDF.

    The problem disappeared for me a several months ago with one of the office updates that was done by MS.

    Sorry, completely forgot about this thread and as the issue resolved itself I haven't looked any further at the cause.

    Good thought but no, just Reader DC. I will mention this, that the XPS Document Writer "printer" is having the same issue, I can print to any physical printer just fine and I can print to both of the print to file printers from any other MSO Application.
