So I have this simple piece of code that I have used many times but for some reason has stopped working. I recently upgraded my project from a VS 2008 solution to VS 2010 solution.

The issue is it just passes over the showdialog. The printdialog never comes up

Dim LabelPrint As New PrintDialog()

        Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor

        Dim result As DialogResult

        If Label_Printer = "" Then
            result = LabelPrint.ShowDialog()

            If (result = DialogResult.OK) Then
                Label_Printer = LabelPrint.PrinterSettings.PrinterName
            Else
                Exit Sub
            End If
        Else
            LabelPrint.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = Label_Printer
        End If

The PrintDialog class may not work on AMD64(x64 or Any CPU is belong to AMD64 technical, including intel x64cpu) microprocessors unless you set the UseEXDialog property to true.

This is a known issue.

And this limitation has been supported in .net framework4, so if you want use this class with windows7 style dialog, then you will need to use .net framework4, otherwise you will need to use the xp style dialog with set the UseEXDialog property to true, or using x86 target platform.

Switched my solution to Framework 4 and everything worked
