Error "Install a Printer" Photoshop CS4 - this message appears when I attempt to print documents that are 1-3 years old. The message reads: "Before you can perform printer-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer." These documents previously printed perfectly fine. When the message appears, the printer/set up options are greyed out, so, although the documents can be edited, they can no longer be printed. Any solutions?

The OS is telling Photoshop that there are no working printer drivers installed.
So Photoshop is telling you that you need to install a printer driver before it can print.

The solution is to install a printer driver, or fix whatever is wrong that makes the OS think you have no printer driver installed.
