All Compensate software requires a printer named "Compensate PS" to be installed on the workstation to be able to email reports.  The required answers for the create printer wizard on your workstation are:
  • Printer Port - LPT1:
  • Printer Driver - HP Color LaserJet PS - or any other Post Script drivers available on your version of windows
  • Printer Name - Compensate PS
  • This printer should not be set as the default printer and should not be shared.
