No printer installed...

This message appears if in Windows no printer driver is installed. Please install the driver of your printer. If you do not have a printer then please install a standard printer, for instance "Text only" or under NT "Generic/Text only" to avoid this message.

The plot command file does not exist anymore...

In general this message appears if the last used Grafis plotter driver does not exist anymore or can not be loaded. Possible reasons are an error in file system (virus, crash of harddisc) or deleting or removing of the file. In some cases also an empty entry of the last used plotter can be the reason. 
Solution: Confirm these messages and select a plotter in the list of Grafis plotters even if you do not use a plotter. After accepting these settings the error should not happen again.

  • The menu file was write-protected while installating an update. In this case an error message should appear during the update.
  • Changes of the menu file made by the user were not correct.

Please check at which Grafis function this message appeas. The respective menu file must be installed again from Grafis installation CD. If you are not sure, then please contact the GRAFIS-Hotline.
