Subject: W7 64 bit issue with printer drivers?
Thread ID: 310974 Message ID: 310974 # Views: 31 # Ratings: 0

I have a program running happily on 10 networked XP Pro machines and 1 W7 machine.
It is not running happily on a newly added W7 64 bit machine. Even if I log in on administrator I get

"error accessing printer spooler"
"error loading printer driver"

when I try to print either to a networked printer or the local printer.
The program runs fine otherwise. Other non-VFP programs on this machine use both printers with no problem.

The printer is selected in a separate maintenance part of the program, and all forms use this code in their print class.
SET PRINTER TO NAME RTRIM((holder.cprinter))

Any tips?
