The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 338
HP 2100 PCL6 driver causes explorer.exe crash
Last modified: 2005-11-14 09:26:00 UTC
I have upgraded recently from alpha22 to rc1. While trying to access printer
properties from XP, i'm getting error "Runtime Error! program:
C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe abnormal program termintation". Printing is not
possible as well. This error is reproducable from any WinXP computer on
network on any shared by samba printer. Printers are HPLJ2100, drivers are
latest PCL6 downloaded from HP and are installed on server via Add Printer
wizard. When i delete drivers from server and install them again, it works
for a while until the first change in printer settings.
Any ideas? Thanks.
I've seen this one with the 2100 PCL drivers as well.
But other drivers work fine. Have you tried
other drivers? What about the 2100 PS drivers?
RC2 will ship with this issue unresolved. We'll put it on
the plate for RC3 and hope to resolve it by then.
Finally fixed this one. :-( Sorry for the delay.
Fix will be in 3.0.1pre2. Attaching the patch to
