Printer problem in Safepay
I have the same problem that has been previously discussed unable to print from Safepay. Most annoying. windows Firewall is turned off! I was with Kaspersky before and their Safemoney did not have this problem. if this continues with Bitdefender I will more than likely go back to Kaspersky.

Are you using a physical printer or a virtual printer (such as NitroPDF, PDF Creator or Microsoft XPS)?
I'm asking this because virtual printers are not supported in Safepay. Most virtual printers open windows in the initial desktop and block Safepay's secure desktop while waiting for your input. So, in this case, printing won't be available with Safepay.
In the event you are using a physical printer, turn OFF Firewall. Restart Safepay and check if you can print now. If it works this way, add your printer IP to Network exceptions in Firewall settings by following the steps described in this article:
Let us know how it goes.
I, too, suddenly can no longer print to any default physical printer from SafePay, and I have never used or want a virtual printer.
I followed the steps of making sure a working physical is default, closed safepay and reopened it.
Also turned off firewall, restarted SafePay, still no printing, yet this is the ONLY app that is giving trouble.
All this started immediately when Bitdefender Update was installed and computer was rebooted a few days ago. No changes or updates to any other programs or printer have been installed. Printer works fine with Word, etc.
Hello @Michael Sa,
This is a known issue that has been acknowledged by the development teams. The behavior has also been reported by one of our members in the German community:
Safepay displays a message that virtual printers are not supported even if a physical printer is set as the default.
We look forward to a resolution.
My printer is set as the default printer however safepay keeps telling me I can't use a virtual printer1
