Solution for Outlook 2010 “There was an error when printing started” Problem


Before you attempt the below fix please ensure that the Printer Spooler service is running and you are able to view the printers in the Control Panel > Printers

 

Close Outlook and delete the following file;

C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\outlprnt

 

Restart Outlook and try printing again. This should resolve the “there was an error when printing started” error message.

 

This fix has been tested on a Windows 7 machine running Outlook 2010
