We are having an issue on one of our servers where two different 32 bit applications are running their own instances of splwow64.exe using the same user account. I was under the impression that only one splwow64 process should run per user account for all 32bit printing. The applications running are a instance of Word and a vendor specific application, the application is run via a service and the Word is invoked by another application running in the background. The two different splwow64 is thought to cause spooler hang issues we are having.
I can not reproduce this dual splwow64 process myself by running the same programs manually so I wonder if there is some what to force splwow64 to run under a specific process so I can manually get two splwow64 processes running and attempt to reproduce the spooler hang. Anyone know how to do this?
