Program only intermittently able to print to printer
Posted on 2007-10-07
Using a domain network with SBS 2003 with all XP Pro. Six are on desktops, three are on a Dell Laptop. Brother MFC LaserJet wired with Cat5e cable to a switch. All computers are connected directly to the printer via the own print driver although I should probably connect through server?
Anyway, using a program called AmazingCharts with the latest print drivers from the Brother's website. None of the programs on the desktops have a problem. One of the laptops has no problem. But, the two AC programs on the other two laptops will freezing when trying to print. Once the program is closed via task manager and reopened it will print just fine. This happens nearly every time with those two computers. I'm not sure how each application interacts with a print driver. There was a time in the past when only the PCL5 drivers would work well with this application as the PCL6 would print out gibberish, but only on some computers.
