I recently updated the Oce TDS400 printer drivers on the server to support a Vista machine. I have one XP station that is getting an Explorer error when you right click > Properties of the printer, all other machines are working fine. When attempting to print anything to it, it immediately shuts off the program being used. The following message occurs in a C:\\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE box.

Function address 0x461e8d2 caused a protection fault. (exception code 0x0000005)
Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed.

I have reinstalled the printer, drivers and restarted the print spooler to no avail.

I need this fixed ASAP, big project going out today. Thanks!!

What should I do if it tells me the printer is in use and I cannot delete the driver?
Right click the printer in the printers and faxes menu and choose "cancel all documents" then reboot the system. After that go back to your printers and faxes menu, right click a blank spot in the window and choose "Server properties" and go to the drivers tab, then remove the printer from there. You'll also want to be sure to remove any software related to it and uninstall it from device manager (if applicable). Then try to reinstall as normal from there.
