    Not on Fingerprint. On Windows. I think it is click start, right click computer, manage, services etc. check the Fingerprint service is running and set to auto ------ Windows XP may be slightly different but you should be able to find it OK.

    By the way, Fingerprint depends on Bonjour to be also running and set to auto.

    When I run Bonjour Print Wizard, it fails - says the Bonjour service is not available. Downloaded version 2.0.2 from Apple and got the same results.

    I downloaded the latest version of FingerPrint (now costs $20). I finally installed and now I see the printers on my network. But when I select one and try to print, nothing comes out. It "appears" to be sent to the printer, but if I open up PrintCenter on my iPad it is still in the Que. Then after awhile I get a message that the printer is offline.

    If I clear the PrintCenter and choose the same printer on my PowerBook G4, it prints just fine.

    Still cannot get FingerPrint to work.

    Any ideas or help?

    Thanks.

    I'm not familiar enough with PrintCenter to know if it works with AirPrint or not; but it should not be necessary for most print jobs. Try printing something directly from an AirPrint app, like Mail. Don't expect the file to show up in PrintCenter's queue.

    Hello unlike JPP my traffic light symbol has not gone away... any suggestions? I have already restarted both my computer and I pad and the traffic lights still exist. On my iphone it says it is being sent to the printer and then just doesn't print and on the original Ipad it just gives me the options of the printers, however, when I click print nothing happens. Any suggestions are very much appreciated

    Thank You.

    So,
    Where is a link to Download Fingerprint for PC?
    The only link I can find is to some annual subscription.

    Am I wrong in thinking I am supposed to be able to buy it for a one time payment of about $20.00?

    Sadly FingerPrint is now only available as a subscription program.

    But, Oprint does exactly the same job and just as well and for about the same price that FingerPrint used to cost.

    Good luck, although you won't need it :).
