 why my printer does not work?

Last week, our administrator changed the printer. I also changed the
printer name in my labview program to be the name of the new printer
he installed . it did work at first. I've  printed out two graphs with
this new printer. But suddenly, it didn't work again. the error is
'invalid printer name'. What are the most possible reasons that a
printer refuse to work in my LABVIEW program?

I found <a href =
Knowledge Base</a> on NI's website which seems to be an issue similar
to yours.  It suggests using the full path for the printer instead of
the alias name and that this can sometimes solve the issue that you
are facing.  I hope this helps you out.

to my LABVIEW program. and It did worked for sometime. I did printed
out two graphs of my  LABVIEW progarm

I'm not exactly sure what this error means, but I have seen it occur
with Report Generation applications.  The issue was resolved just by
recompiling the VIs.  To do this, hold down Ctrl and Alt buttons and
click the Run button.  You won't see anything happen but you will have
to save the VI again.  Try this and see if it works for you.

I did as you told, but it did  not work yet.

The strange thing si that I did succeeded printing out several times
before I chnaged the printer name and after. But suddenly, it refused
to corperate.
