Well I gave it a try but I must be missing something as a new Item
does not appear in the emacs File menu and no printing occurs.

Here is my .emacs file:

(require 'hfyview)

;;Org-mode settings
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode))
(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(global-font-lock-mode 1)

This is the version of emacs I am using now.
This is GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)
 of 2009-02-26 on LENNART-69DE564 (patched)

I will keep investigating this. I like the org application in Emacs
too but occasionally need to print.
