I have an app. which uses the "OnPreparePrinting" class.
in this function I set my max page i.e
pInfo->SetMaxPage(2), and then call
BOOL bRet = DoPreparePrinting(pInfo);

At this point when I run my app. my print dialog comes up where I choose my printer type, number of pages.. and then click on OK.  Somewhere in the DoPreparePrinting, I get
an assertion failed error.

File: viewprnt.cpp line 211 which shows as follows:

VERIFY(pInfo->m_strPageDesc.LoadString(AFX_IDS_PREVIEWPAGEDESC));
I don't know how to get around this verify.  I am not sure what I have to set in my pInfo struct. to get around this error.

Can anyone help?
Thanking you in advance,

Sunjoy

Try to include AFXPRINT.RC file in your project.
It should be in MFC\INCLUDE subdirectory of your VC++ directory.
At least this is truth for VC++ 4.2.
