Missing Driver:

I am getting this error when trying to plot. When I select the printer I
want to use (Xerox 8830) I get the message "Missing Driver:"

The weird thing is that everything works great on all the 2000i machines and
the problem only occurs on the two ADT3.0 machines. Also, I have both
ADT3.0 and A2Ki installed and I only get this error in ADT3.0.

Any help?

My guess is that your path to the Plot Styles directorty is not the same on
all computers. We have the plot styles on a network drive but some computers
do not have the path set correctly under "options>files" and they get the
same message you state.
If your plot styles are on a network drive, a shortcut to this directory in
the default directory for the local machines Plot styles directory should
correct the problem.

Sorry, this also the case for the Plotter and DRV directories. I think your
problem is the Plot Styles but similar things happen if Plotter or Drv is
not the same on all computers.
