Hi everybody,

i have the problem that my WinXP crashs(no bluscreen etc. its like pulling the plug) if i call
Call BrowserToPrint.Navigate(str_Time_HTML) 'this part works
BrowserToPrint.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINTPREVIEW, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT)
in my VisualBasic 5.0 program.

Sometimes XP crashs during loading of the preview window, sometimes after pressing the print button.

I also tried the other options:
Call BrowserToPrint.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_PROMPTUSER)
Call BrowserToPrint.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER)

but it doesn't work. Has somebody an idea why XP can crash during this operation?

What is in BrowserToPrint?  I Googled it and found absolutely nothing so it must be a sub or function in one of your modules.

Sorry, stupid comment by me.  Looks like BrowserToPrint is the name of your WebBrowser Control. Duh....

Try creating a new Project with just a WebBrowser control and a CommandButton.

Paste the following code and hit the button.  Does it crash?

' -----------Begin Code
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINTPREVIEW, OLECMDEXECOPT_DODEFAULT
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    WebBrowser1.Navigate "http://www.google.com"
End Sub

Then there is most likely something wrong with the old project.   Tis a pain in the butt.... but, I think you may be ok if you start with a new project and then add your components and copy your code over to the new project.

Good Luck....let us know how it goes.

After testing and testing and testing,

because I tried to print directly with internet explorer ==> crash
i tried it from other computers everything works.

so I make a basic installation with my pc and then we will see

problem is solved,

we found out, that the reason for the xp-crash was a old printer-driver
after installing the new one, everything works perfect.
