read Why can't I print coupons.com, keeps wanting me to download it over and over

I am so frustrated! I can't seem to print coupons anymore from coupons.com. It tells me to download the program, in the middle of the download, I get this message:

Failed to register COM (ActiveX) control: C:WINDOWS\CouponPrinter.ocs Failure in Load Library ()(126)

After I get this, I hit cancel, then the program finishes downloading. I check and the program is in my Program file. In the meantime, IE closed down. So I open IE, go to coupons.com, select my coupon, hit print, and once again, it asks me to download, even though the program is already on my computer! Of course, their FAQ does not help me at all with this problem.

Does anyone else have this problem, or have they fixed the problem?

Thanks

Try accessing coupons.com from a different browser than internet explorer, sometimes this helps.

If you use Vista it has some serious hate towards printable coupons even when using Firefox.

Which coupon are you trying to print? The last time I had that happen, I went to the product's main website, found the link for the coupon and there was a registration form to be filled out first, then I could print it. So sometimes I think people are entering the link you get AFTER you should have filled out the registration form. So skipping that step is messing it up.

I'm not sure what's going on, but I know this morning none of the coupon printing sites are working for me. I can't even get the sites to load. I just read another post here, that other people are having trouble just accessing the sites. You may just want to wait and see if your problem has to do with why the sites are down now. I hope you get it worked out.

Thanks for all your suggestions, but it is still doing the same thing no matter how many times I try. And I can't try Firefox cause we can't download any permanent programs (I'm at work). Thanks anyway!

Some work for me and some ask me to install the coupon printer, over and over. I think someone on AFC told me once, I needed to install Firefox to get some coupons to work.

I also find that one of our computers seems to print very well, while the second won't print bricks at all. It 'hangs' at the 'sending to printer' picture of the computer & printer and it never prints.

Have you searched this forum for "can't print" or "won't print" or "install printer"? There are a lot of more technical people than I and I know I have seen this answered before.

Sorry I couldn't be more help. Good luck!

I think that it is because I just updated my McAfee virus protection.... So now what?

I feel your pain. I have this problem with brick coupons. Sometimes they print fine, other times I go through the downloading the "coupon printer" over and over and over. It will sometimes do that for weeks and all of a sudden, start working. A few things I would suggest, but can't promise will help are:

Check you printer settings in the Printer folder on your system. In the options somewhere (I can't remember where) there is an option that says "save copies of printed documents" (or something to that effect). If that box is check, you cannot download or print coupons, yet the program you are trying to download will not tell you this. That solved my problem once for a while.

When you are downloading the coupon printer, do you get a line across the top of your browser (it is at the very top just below your tabs and bookmarks and you may not notice it if you aren't looking) that either says "pop-up blocked" or "website wants to install active x control"? If so, you have to click on that to up block pop ups and allow the active x control to install.

If all else fails, does you McAfee have some option that will let you allow active x controls for certain sites or something like that? I don't have McAfee, so I am not familair with its options.

I hope some of this helps, but even with all this, I still have problems sometimes with both Firefox and Explorer on WindowsXP desktop and a Windows Vista Laptop.
