Visio 2010 crashes when printing to a network printer
« on: March 16, 2012, 11:41:29 AM »
Running Visio 2010 on Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.    User is able to print a visio flow chart document .vsd file to a local printer without issue, but when he attempts to print to a network printer Visio crashes.   (printer is a sharp MX-M5001.  I was able to open a new visio document from the users desk and add just a few objects to it and it prints to the network printer just fine.   I made a copy of the offending document and renamed it and attempted to print it to the network printer from the users desk and it crashes still.  I also installed Visio 2010 to another machine and was able to print the document to the network printer so i know its isolated to the users desktop.   

Below is the error message recorded in the event log on the users machine.  Also I've seen a lot of forms talking about disabling add-ons, but I checked and there are no add-ons installed or running that I can see.

Also I uninstalled the printer and reinstalled the printer.

do you have the latest drivers?
Does the drawing contain complex fill or shaded fill patterns?
