    Is anyone else having this problem? I have upgraded to Lion and everything went smooth EXCEPT....

    I am running AutoCAD and I am needing to print out my project. I have a HP Designjet 500 that I was happily printing to BEFORE Lion. I can print all day long on the Mac side, but cannot get the same results in Parallels. As it is - the file either never makes it or it shows as an error on the Mac. So for the time being I am generating a pdf and then through Preview I am printing to my HP. Can someone shed some light on this?

    Thank you :D

    The first thing I'd do is make sure you have 10.7.4 and the latest Parallels 7 build. You can get these things via Software Update and the Parallels Updater, respectively. If that doesn't solve it... I'm not sure what to suggest, as I've never tried printing from the Parallels environment. :eek:
