quickbooks is unable to create the data to send try closing other programs

just installed QB pro 2011 on new laptop. now when I try to send an invoice i get "quickbooks is unable to create the data to send try closing other programs and try again". 

I've zapped temp files and since this is a new computer with little on it there can't be a memory problem. I "repaired" QBs and rebooted numerous times. Any suggestions?

    Are you kidding?  That's the answer.  Intuit doesn't plan on fixing the problem with an update?

    We send out 100 invoices per day.  I don't plan on manually creating them 1 by 1 and attaching them.

        I fixed this by designating a "different printer" as the the default. (Not the PDF writer)
        As soon as I did that I could email invoices and print to the Xerox.

          People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

          1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
          2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
          3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
          4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
          5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
