 +==Error Message==

 +
 +
 +Floating Point Overflow (when attempting to print)
 +
 +
 +
 +==Explanation of Error==
 +
 +
 +
 +This is a problem with the HP2600n drivers (and possibly others).
 +
 +
 +
 +==Resolution==
 +
 +
 +
 +The HP2600Fix switch needs to be turned on.  This can be done in one of three ways.
 +
 +
 +
 +===Options File===
 +
 +
 +
 +If the issue is occurring system-wide,​ then it is preferable to add the following line to the Control_Options.txt file...
 +
 +
 +
 +[[code_formattext|code format="​text"​]]
 +
 +
 +
 +HP2600Fix=1
 +
 +
 +
 +<​code>​
 +===Registry===
 +If the issue limited to one machine, then it may be ideal to only turn on the switch in the registry of that machine. ​ Follow these steps to enter the switch into the registry.
 +  - Open the Registry (regedit.exe)
 +  - Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cyrious Software\Control\Options. ​ If that path does not exists, then create any missing keys.
 +  - Under Options create a DWord value called HP2600Fix and set it's value to 1.
 +===Shortcut===
 +Another option if the issue is occurring on one particular machine is to add the switch to the application'​s shortcut. ​ This is not always ideal, since the switch will not be turned on if the user opens the application from another shortcut, or by opening the exe directly. ​ Follow these steps to add the switch to the shortcut.
 +  - Right-click on your Control or SMS Icon.
 +  - Click on "​Properties"​
 +  - At the end of the //Target:// field, add **-hp2600fix**
 +Your //Target:// field should look something like this:
 +[[code_formatdos|code format="​dos"​]]
 +
 +
 +
 +"​C:​\Program Files\Cyrious\Control\Control.exe"​ -hp2600fix
 +
 +
 +
 +<​code>​
 +//Note: This resolution may be effective even if your printer is not an HP2600//
