Hi Gerald,

If you want just simple printout (they can still be in colors) you may try
w32-winprint.el which you can find on You can find
it in the ElispArea there. (The name is wthreetwo-winprint.el since numbers
are not allowed in the file names there.) You need htmlize.el too which you
can find on

w32-winprint.el converts the document to print to html (htmlize.el does the
job) and then send this to windows default printing for html files.

I am currently rewriting w32-winprint.el as w32-print.el. The basic
functionality will still be the same.

If you want more professional printouts (like ps-print.el can do) then you
can use Ghostscript and GSview with Emacs. The setup of this is more simple
if you go to Vinicius Emacs page and get the new version of ps-print.el and

I am using Emacs 21.3 under Windows 2000.  Recently our IT people wiped my
PC clean and installed Windows 2000 on my machine.  Since then I can't
print from Emacs anymore.  I've been unsing Emacs on the same machine with
Windows NT as OS for several years with no printing problems.  Now, however
I try printing, I get the following message in the *Message* window:

direct-print-region-helper: Lseek error: invalid argument, c:/PRN

I am using the same ".emacs" file as before and I get the same message
trying to PostScript print or just the regular Windows print.

Any clue?
