View Full Version : Error with Greencloud Printer on Windows 8

I installed the latest offering for Greencloud Printer and I was lucky enough to find version 6.3.0 on the net.
I am running Windows 8.0 on my laptop and Windows 8.1 on a desktop. The 6.6.0 does not work on either. I was able to get version 4.3.0 and I have no problem using Greencloud Printer again.
I think some more works needs to be done, until then you may want to remove 6.6.0 until you get the problem fixed.

You're right, unfortunately this wasn't found during initial testing. It only happens on Windows 8 with a fresh GreenCloud installation. If you update from an older version, the problem should not occur.

It has been fixed now, please download the latest version:

In case the problem still occurs, follow these steps:
1) In Windows Explorer, navigate to GreenCloud's installation folder C:\Program Files\ObviousIdea\GreenCloud
2) Right-click on GCPreproc.exe and select Properties
3) Click on Compatibility tab
4) Now check Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows 7
5) Click OK
