I have been using CorelDraw 3 for several years and it has been able to print to my old printer HP B209.
I am using Windows 7 32 bit on one computer and Windows 10 32 bit on a second computer. The program will not run in Windows 64 bit.
Since installing my new HP Officejet 6956 printer I get the following message when I try to print. "Print destination cannot be activated. Printing is cancelled." The printer box comes up and i can change paper size, orientation, and all the other settings, so the program recognizes the printer, but it will not print.
I can print from all my other programs eg. Word, Excel, Photoshop etc, without any problems.
I am thinking that because the problem is only with CorelDraw the program is so old that the printer does not recognize the output. Any help would be appreciated.
The same problem I faced but did not get any solution. However, I later switched to epson printer, the experts of this service is very quick in solving the issues as I got Epson Printer Error Code 0x97 , I got instant solution to it.
I solved the problem.
I changed the connection setting of the printer from WSD/IP to TCP/IP.
Find your printer IP Address
Open Devices and Printers, click on Add Printer, Add Network Printer, The Printer is not listed, Next.
Click on Add a network printer, Add a printer using TCP/IP address, Next, click on down arrow, TCP/IP device.
Enter IP Address, click on Printer Name and model, next, type a name for your printer, install.
I can now print from my Coreldraw 3 which is a very old program, and is no longer supported. I do not use it very much, so I am reluctant to purchase the latest version.
