We have problems with print jobs jamming in the queue. Win2K/MF FR3, with
UPD, but was also happening without the UPD.
We find a job partially downloaded in Print Manager (e.g. 1.8K of 123K
bytes), with all the other jobs that user has tried to print stuck behind
If you retry the print job it fails at the same point (always between 1 and
5 K in to the file)
The spooler is still running and other users are not impacted.
My initial thought was that it fails when a user disconnects, but this has
not proven to be the case.
If I stop the spooler, delete the jobs and restart the spooler they continue
Any Suggestions?
