:DThanks for all the above info VC you make computer stuff so much easier to understand.:A:T Would it be possible for this to go as a single post with a link on the 1st page in the questions for people having difficulty with couponnet please?

link back to the "proper" MOC thread.... first page is here and last page is here

It is ALL to do with the info couponnet sends to the printer...they have safeguards in place to ensure that the coupon cannot be stored electronically and re-printed as often as the user wants!

In my experience on several machines:

Couponnet works fine...... if you are using Mozilla firefox and Windows XP

Couponnet works fine if you use Mozilla firefox and windows vista as long as you only have one printer, and no software printers/faxes installed.

Couponnet works fine...... if you are using Mozilla firefox and Windows98

Couponnet will not work on linux, with ANY browser.

So the problem is not at the couponnet end...it is with the ever changing browser compatabilities, and how we operate our systems.....
If the couponnet system does not recognise something, it will not allow the print to go through...and quite rightly so, IMHO.

If you have a browser that works....keep it for couponnet....load another one for other browsing if you like....or if the new one doesn't work.....go back to your old one.....use the windows refresh option, to go back to an earlier time. (programs/accessories/system tools/system restore).

I posted last night about Vista printer issues...if it applies to you....try it.

also from the couponnnet site

Is my printer supported?

Please note that ONLY paper based printers are supported. Flash, Adobe/PDF, Queue stackers, File printers etc are not supported due to fraud protection measures.

Please check your printer settings to make sure your default printer is a regular printer. The coupon must be printed to paper. Some printer drivers (this will be displayed in the error message) have an option to print to a file that cannot be circumvented. For security reasons, these printers are not supported. If you have a multifunction printer (fax, copy, print), please make sure the printer function is the default printer on your computer.

I have had a number of issues, on a number of computers, and all have been able to print fresh couponnet coupons.
It is all detailed on this thread or the previous ones, but the main things are as stated above......use firefox, use ccleaner to uninstall, clean out all rubbish and clean the registry (several times), re-boot,install couponprinter and start printing again.

If you get stuck, couponnet have most of the answers on their site......but they don't know what you have on your system....and they have to safeguard theirs!
:beer:
Also from couponnet site for info:

Why couldn't I install the Coupon Printer?

If you are experiencing problems installing the Coupon Printer there may be a few reasons:

1. You may not have permission to download programs on your computer or you are using software that blocks the installation
If you are trying to print coupons at work or from a computer at a library, Internet cafe or university, you may not have permission to download and install programs onto the computer you are using. This may be true even if you've downloaded and installed other files. Contact your network administrator for more information. If you have a home computer, you may find it easier to access our coupons there.

You might also be running software that prevents installation on your computer. Please make sure to turn off any anti-virus software or any anti-spyware or adware software. While we have attempted to work with most of the major publishers of such software to ensure that our Coupon Printer is not blocked, there may be programs that block the installation, or put up a warning that you are about to install a program. You should choose to allow the installation.



2. The security settings in your browser are set too high
If you receive warnings or errors that an attempt to install and ActiveX control (Internet Explorer) or a plugin was blocked, or are asked for permission to install a program, you may need to change your browser's security settings to allow installation of these types of controls. Also, make sure to click the appropriate buttons in any dialog boxes that appear to allow the installation. Modern browers make you jump through a few hoops to install plugins, but it's worth it!


3. Your operating system or browser is incompatible
Coupon printing is currently supported on Windows 98, NT4, 2000, ME, XP and Vista when used with Internet Explorer 5+, Netscape 7+, FireFox 1.0.7+ and most MSN and AOL browsers. Coupon printing is also supported on Macintosh when using Safari under OS X 10.3 and higher. Coupon printing is not supported by the Compuserve 2000 7.0 browser. While connected to Compuserve, use Internet Explorer or another browser to print your coupons. Coupon printing is not supported on Linux or WebTV.
It's nice to be nice .....:beer:

    post 2 more words of wisdom to come here:rolleyes:

    FAQs will be posted here

    *.......Where can I download the coupon printer....you will be prompted to load in before you print coupons, or you can download from here

    *.....where can I get firefox?....... from their home site

    *.....where can I get ccleaner?.....you could always try googling...or if you want everything on a plate you can get it here

    *....VC you sarcastic b*****d, are you on commission from these people?.......no my kind friend, these links go directly to the company sites, with no affiliation links, just offered with my blessing

    FAQ2............................
    solution ditch IE and load Mozilla firefox

    FAQ3.......................
    solution...uninstall coupon printer using CCleaner, clean the registry, while you are at it, then reboot your system
    Have you recently updated to verson 8 of Internet Explorer? As I had this recently. All you need to do is click on 'run add-ons' (as directed on screen) and all starts working again. :j Good luck
    Mine slowed down alot when I installed IE8, so much so that my friendly little "fixes my computer" man :A had a look and he just did - Internet Options/Advanced/Reset - and now all lovely jubbly.

    And yes I think we should have seperate thread for technical problems as can be a bit boring to read _pale_.

    quote kev180 I updated to IE8 but found that it slowed down my PC. I uninstalled IE8 and reinstalled IE7, which I am going to stick with. I think that my original prob is due to couponet allowing me to select coupons that I have already printed, then saying I haven't printed before ( as if ! ) then telling me to install coupon printer. I still haven't solved it yet. Maybe I'll uninstall and reinstall Coupon Printer
    hi kev,
    i had this problem once, exactley the same as you, i was on IE7 xp then, only thing that stopped it, was to uninstall my printer, and re-install. worked a treat.

    On the other thread mentioned above, it would be helpful if m4rtin and the other computer whizzes:T:T, could "book" a couple of the first few posts for editing later...to keep all the info at the front page:beer:

    we will have a few blank posts to start with....this should hopefully allow updated info to filter onto the front page

    As many of you have experienced couponnet problems..here is a way that we have shown to work, over on the main thread

    The issues appear to have come from glitch software, around the time of the Warburton download, and couponnet being taken down that night for corrective maintenance.

    These instructions are offered in good faith, but no liability for any lost data will be entertained.
    If you are unsure what to do...don't do it...and get someone who knows what they are doing to follow the instructions, and do what they see fit.

    Many thanks to CouponWoman and her son, for being my guinea pigs for testing:T

    Summary of instructions (for single computer)....Done on XP home and XP pro machines

    Download FF3 onto a USB drive or CD before doing anything (this is necessary to keep IE problems from couponnet


    Restore your PC to a happy time...this will clear out erroneous files downloaded by couponnet
    ....happy time probably 2 weeks ago...but any time before the night couponnet went down should do....if you have downloaded other programs since then, you may wish to backup that info, and all other info that is precious to you (just in case)
    This step MAY be superfluous...but it seems to help!( and was done on every case that worked!!!)

    TURN OFF ALL FIREWALLS/ANTI VIRUS ETC AS SPECIFIED IN POST 1
    ....turn it back on, when finished.

    uninstall internet explorer (not strictly necessary...but was done on every case known to work!!)

    load CCleaner and clean everything several times ESPECIALLY the registry until it comes back clear

    load FF3 from USB

    download rapidshare file

    Do a test print on your printer, and make sure it is set as the default printer

    run rapidshare file, until it says coupons are ready to print

    go onto couponnet page 2, and try printing the gas coupon (this one because it will allow multiple downloads!)

    If it says to download the coupon installer...GO BACK TO YOUR SAVED ONE AND START TO INSTALL AGAIN...... you should not need to fully install it as it will automatically (after a few minutes), pick up the one you installed, that I put on rapidshare...and will then print the coupon

    Problem solved


    edit: just remembered I hadn't linked the rapidshare file http://rapidshare.com/files/247069547/TheCouponnetFile.exe.html

    Ok, I have followed your instructions to the letter, waited 5 minutes for printing to start, nothing.

    Went back to Couponnet and clicked the BG coupon again, it wanted me to download Couponnet again.

    I think I'm broke :( (well laptop anyway)

    Really tired now so will stop trying. Thanks again for all your help :)

    Hopefully someone else will be successful tomorrow :)
