    Default zebra tlp 2844 label printer in w7

    We are using the Zebra TLP2844 label printers - for W7 they had to make a new driver - which renames the printer to Zdesigner TLP 2844.

    I've tried everything I can think of to print directly to the printer - even setting that printer as the default printer, as well as printer_override

    no matter what I do, if I print to it from Alpha it renders an infinite number of labels

    but if I set the label to show printer on setup, and select it from windows printers, it prints correctly.

    has anyone else had this issue?

    In the properties to the printer configuration you may find additional advanced label settings. I had this issue with a Brother label printing and found I had to some advanced settings on the printer itself.

    Got the tech from Zebra to come on and go thru a lot of clearing and resetting all the settings, and it still won't print right

    it prints one "good" label and three blank ones

    has been working perfectly on XP for a few years

    he says that "its my software" - which basically means their driver for W7 is not very good
