If you are using Revit, you might see this error message:
“Revit could not start the print job because it was unable to connect to the specified printer. Check your printer connectivity and try again.”
I’ve seen several users posted in forums about this. Revit used to plot fine before, but suddenly give that error especially in batch plotting. Other software might print just fine; only Revit is affected.
The problem is latest Windows security update. If you recently installed Windows update, try to uninstall it and see if it solved the problem.
If you are using Windows 10, uninstall KB3172729 and if you use Windows 7, uninstall KB3177725. I haven’t seen any Windows 8 users reporting it, but you can check installed updates by the installed date.
If you are not familiar with installing Windows Update, refer to this article: How to Uninstall Updates or Service Pack.
