Print to Go in Windows 8

Has anyone used Print to Go successfully from a Windows 8 Metro App? Reader for example. I am sure this worked for me the first time I tried it a couple months ago.

 

I can print from a "desktop" application. The document preferences window opens and I am good to go. No metro style apps will work however, I assume because I can't get to the document preferences window.

 

I appreciate any insight anyone has.

My experience is the same as yours.  If the desktop is called then P2G works.  So far I've found nothing in the "Metro/whatever" gui that lets me print anything. Not even using the Skydrive app in the Start page.  Not sure why MS did this.  Seems like MS is addicted to loosing feet.  Wonder how many they have left? :

Print to Go in Windows 8

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8

 

Every time I try to use Print to go I receive a              'Print to go connector has stopped working'        error message.

 

Having spent a couple of hours looking at, and trying solutions,  I am lost - this is really annoying  - it worked perfectly in Windows 7.

 

Any suggestions welcome.......

Check with Microsoft if Win8 Allows apps to run into their ' native' (in the case Win7) mode.  Win 7 had a feature to do this.

Also report the problem to BlackBerry Support. 

This is a very important app to, lose.
