Consider that you use Print Preview in Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9 to preview a document which uses an ActiveX MIME handler such as Visio Viewer. When you close Print Preview by using the Close button (the red X in the upper-right corner of the Print Preview dialog box) and then try to print the document, Internet Explorer does not print the document.
