Default Virtual document printer missing

Hello

I was going to try and print a web page into My Documents, and clicked print (I don't have a 'real' printer) but it said that a printer couldn't be found. Now, what I was expecting was for it to launch the document image/virtual printer that lets you print a page and save it as a file in your documents (comes up as and MDI file)...

I don't know whats happened, I know I haven't (intentionally) deleted it, but is it just disabled or something Ive checked Printers and Faxes but its not there! I've tried to print in Word too, but to no avail

what do you mean by not a real printer? what are you doing it this way for what are you trying to do? why can't you just save the web page as a html document.

I mean I don't have a printer, but I want to 'print' the page and have it saved as a file, and its an invoice, and I don't want to save it as a html document because im being difficult I could save it as HTML, but then I would still like to know how on earth to get the virtual printer working

I cant even do that, it says "There was a problem printing - no printer could be found"

Never mind, someone else showed me a page that has the how-to on it..

How to set up microsoft file imager thingy
