    Error "An Error Occured During This Operation" When Printing


    This error only seems to produce itself in instance where the Windows 10 based contextual print menu is needed. This does not occur for instance when printing via Chrome or even Printing a test page from settings as this window is now required in those contexts. This is currently being observed on an install of Win 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB (OS Build 14393.3443) Here is a gif depicting the behavior linked here Imgur: The magic of the Internet

    Have you tested this with any other programs? Like MS Word, Excel, Notepad, anything else?

    If it works in other programs then maybe the problem lies with Firefox.
    You could clean install Firefox.

    Indeed, as depicted in the gif in the link, the failure occurs in Firefox and Wordpad when tested. It is contingent on the contextual pop up print window, that is where the failure occurs. Any application that does not require this prints fine.

    Have you checked in Control Panel > Devices and Printers to look for anything strange? Like duplicate printers?

    Also while there, right click on any printer device > Properties > Printer Server Properties > Drivers Tab > and look for any duplicates there.

    As a test, try creating a context menu in Send To, just to see if the behavior happens there too:

    No issues with the hardware, I've done the basics in respect to that. The print job prints fine if it doesn't involve the context menu. The behavior occurs with Save and Save As functionality as well. Nothing happens, menu doesn't present itself. See gif for demonstration of the behavior, to avoid the potential question, there is no second display connected: Imgur: The magic of the Internet

    Yes, and this works because the contextual menu for print, save, save as is not required when the job is run that way. The real crux of the issue is the contextual menu failing. Not whether the print job will actual output successfully.

    I think you will need someone running Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB to weigh in. It seems to be unique to your system.

    Did this behavior start after a windows Update, particularly, an update to v2004?

    No updates within the last month, we defer purposefully. I've got over 200 LTSB images running out there and its only happening on this box.
