That is strange. Just to see if it were some accident of my setup that  
I could print, I installed a fresh OzTeX 5.2 from the original  
archive, made no customization so that OzTeX is using only the files  
that Andrew distributes and then printed a document without changing  
any settings in the print dialog. DVIPS found the tex-std prolog and  
printed successfully. Here's the console output:

To see if your printer is involved in the failure to print or if the  
problem occurs earlier (I suspect the latter since you can print with  
other applications), try using the DVIPS entry in the Tools menu to  
convert a dvi file you have been trying to print.
