    This error might be possible because the printer is not supporting the 32 bit of the application printing that you are trying to perform. First check whether the printer of yours is supporting the 32 bit or not. If it is not supporting then it is impossible to print from the same. So check and see whether it is working or not.

    As per my knowledge the Printer might be not supporting the driver for your device which you are using and can be possible that might not perfection with the functionality of it. If you can then download the latest driver for the Windows 7 which will work fine with the same and see whether you are getting it work or not.

    Damaged documents or documents that contain damaged graphics or damaged fonts can cause print errors in Word. Before you reinstall drivers or software, test the Word program's ability to print. To do this, follow these steps:
    Word 2007 and Word 2010
    • Open a new blank document in Word.
    • On the first line of the document, type the following text: =rand(10)
    • Press ENTER. This inserts 10 paragraphs of sample text.
    • Try to print the document.
    • If the document prints successfully, change to a different font, or insert clip art, a table, or a drawing object.

    If nothing from the above reply is working for you and you are still going through the same problem then i will advise you to contact the Microsoft regarding the issue and see whether you are getting the proper solution for your printing issue. The Microsoft is also having the Windows 7 support forum where you can work with the issue and find the solution.

    I think that the driver for the printer is not functioning and giving the error for same. In that case it is better to download and install the latest printer driver. But first you have uninstall the driver for printer completely so that you feel not face any kind of conflict during the time of the installation of the new driver. So do the same and get rid of the issue.
