JSI Tip 8298. When you add a separator page to your Printer Properties, you receive 'The separator page does not exist'?

The subject problem occurs if the separator page file does NOT have the archive bit set.

To workaround this behavior, set the archive bit on the separator file:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. type the following command and press Enter:

attrib +a FileName

Where FileName is the fully qualified name of the separator page file, normally at %SystemRoot%\System32.

3. Add the separator page in the Printer Properties dialog.
