Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to open the .spd file.

Locate the line beginning with:

Save and close the file.

Delete the corresponding .wpx file from the Windows\System folder. (This file contains information from the .spd file. When you delete this file, the .spd file is read again to re-create the .wpx file.)

PJL commands are sent by the Windows 95 PostScript printer driver to multiple-language printers that are compatible with Hewlett-Packard's Printer Job Language controls to switch to the PostScript language and perform other job control functions.

PJL Commands usually have the following format:
Some network spoolers have problems with these commands if they look specifically for PostScript document fields to define the parameters of the print job.
