We have a Windows 2003 print server which has different customized separator pages applied to each of our network printers to change orientation, font size, and in some instances VMI. These pages worked correctly for 2+ years until 3 weeks ago. There were no updates applied from Microsoft at that time, and I have not found any changes made to the server yet. It appears that the print server is ignoring the separator pages. I've tested this using the "print /D:device [path\file]" from CMD.
If I install any of the printers to a different computer and apply the separator pages for them there, they print correctly, but that is not an acceptable solution. The Application that requires the formatting of the separator pages has many customized subroutines and hooks. Included in the code section is one of the separator page codes.
So far, I've pulled off the customized pages, replaced them, restarted the spooler service, and restarted the server itself. What could cause the server to ignore the separator pages, and how can I resolve it?
