1. Error Message

Error message reads: A PSException was caught: “Could not find the package ‘ePrint Combined’ on the server manifest. It may have been deleted. Try downloading the package again or contact an administrator.”

This is usually a problem with the network.  Make sure the computer is connecting to the network and has strong connectivity, that the Duke network can be reached, and that no firewalls are blocking the signal.

If off-campus, you may want to try connecting with the VPN. For more information about connecting with the VPN, please  use the information at this link.

2. Unable to print multiple pages on each side of paper in Windows

The Advanced Printing Features for the print may be disabled. To fix this, please follow these directions:

  1. Click Start and select Control Panel.
  2. Click Devices and Printers (if you’re running Windows 7 or later) or Printers and Faxes (if you’re running Windows XP).
  3. Right click on ePrint-OIT and select Properties.
  4. Select the Advanced tab.
  5. Check the box to the left of Enable advanced printing features, then click OK.  You should now be able to print more than one page per side.


3. The ePrint uninstallation process fails using macOS

The uninstaller may fail to run properly in macOS. To fix this, please follow these directions:

  1. In Finder, click Go, and select Go To Folder
  2. Input /Library/Application Support/Pharos/Utilities/Uninstaller.app/Contents/MacOS
  3. Select Uninstaller
  4. Select all pharos components for removal
  5. Verify eprint Printers have been deleted under System Preferences > Printers and Scanners

After this completes, reboot the Mac and continue with the  macOS Installation process.

  1. Verify in Control Panel, Programs and Features, uninstall a program – that Pharos is not listed
  2. Go to your File explorer
  3. Navigate to the folder specified in the error message (ex. C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Temp\Pharos\ControllerLog.txt)
  4. Please delete the Temp folder that contains Pharos
  5. Restart your computer and try the install again

6. No Popup prompt to enter NetId

After selecting ePrint-OIT, you do not get prompted to enter your NetID

  1. Go to System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items tab
  2. Click the (+) sign to add an Item
  3. Navigate to Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Pharos and select Popup
  4. Press Add. PopUp should be listed in your login items now

If you do not have Macintosh HD or Library listed in the navigation, please go to Finder > Preferences > Side bar to make sure that there is a check next to Hard disk.
