I have a windows application developed in C#. My application need to print in two local printers 'av1' and 'av2'. I use the following code:

...
rpt.SetParameterValue("xx", owner.ZipCode);
rpt.SetParameterValue("xx", dtFrom.Value.ToShortDateString());
rpt.SetParameterValue("xx", mSales.Summary.ToString("C"));

rpt.PrintOptions.PrinterName ="av1";
rpt.PrintToPrinter(1, true, 0, 9999);
...

and same for the other printer

...
rpt.PrintOptions.PrinterName ="av2";
rpt.PrintToPrinter(1, true, 0, 9999);
...

The problem is that somtimes it works and sometimes occurs exception:
{System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80000201): Invalid printer specified.
   at CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Controllers.PrintOutputControllerClass.ModifyPrinterName(String newVal)
   at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.PrintOptions.set_PrinterName(String value)
   at Administrimi.ListSalesForm.btnPrint_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in F:\MyProgs\DotNet\MyApplication\Administrimi\ListSalesForm.cs:line 233}

Any suggestion?

Are the printers the same kind?

Crystal is highly dependent on the printer driver.

Are the printers always available?

Do all users have permissions on them?

Can a printer be moved offline or reserved by a user?

Can a printer get overloaded or a print queue be full?

The problem who we have is showed above. The Printers are normally installed in the same form and the once is Primary (the default) and the other is as secondary installed. Both printers are OK configured through NCR Tool and are working.

Both printers can be moved offline and online and can be reserved by a user.

Yes, the printer do from time to time an "limited by administrator processing capacity". Maybe you know the problem?!

Regards and many thanks for your help!
