Such printing issue appears whenever you have enabled “Bidirectional support” for your printer. If so, you won’t be able to print using your printer even you have the perfect driver installed. To fix such issue, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Start menu >> Control Panel >> Hardware and Sound >> Devices and Printers.
  2. Right-click on your printer and select “Printer Properties”.
  3. Open “Ports” tab.
  4. Disable the option saying “Enable bidirectional support”.

Now, try to print your document. It should work fine without any software related issue.
