Dennis:

Yeah, that one drove me crazy too.  It happened to me when I brought my
workstation back to the office after my surgery recovery.  I had been using
Protel with an HP printer in another bedroom on another PC.

I don't know if this is a Windows problem, HP printer driver problem, Delphi
problem, or Protel problem.  But it sucks anyway.  You would think after 30+
years of computer industry, problems like this wouldn't happen.
