Hi,

 

We recently got iMac computers for our office, however we still have a windows computer we need to be able to use to print. I have the printer, a Dell 1320c, installed on my Mac, and it prints just fine.

 

I also have Parallels and Windows 7 installed on my Mac. I can print just fine from within Windows (Bonjour was not needed) Curiously, when I print a Windows Test Page from within Parallels, it says that the printer name is the Dell Color Laser 1320c, however, the Printer Model says: HP Color LaserJet 2800 Series PS. I have no clue where that came from, but I wonder if that may be causing a problem.

 

Within OS X 10.8.2, I have enabled Printer Sharing to everyone. I turned off sharing in Parallels, though that didn't make a difference.

 

On the Windows 7 PC, I have tried to manually add the printer with TCP/IP, but it wouldn't recognize a printer. I installed Bonjour, and was able to install the Dell printer, however, when I print, I get a bunch of pages that starts like this:

 

-12345X@PJL JOB MODE=PRINTER

@PJL SET STRINGCODESET=UTF8

@PJL COMMENT DATE=12/26/2012

@PJL COMMENT TIME=17:02:04

@PJL COMMENT DNAME=Test Page

@PJL SET JOBATTR="@LUNA...........

 

and so on...

 

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I saw several posts about disabling bi-directional support, but that didn't work.

 

Does anyone have any ideas of what else I could try?? Thank you!
