    printer hanging after win 10 upgrade


    Just upgraded to windows 10. When I print to a laser printer in an application, the printer prints fine but afterwards, the circle of death remains and my screen is hung it doesnt return control to user. I have to close/restart my app. The app worked perfectly before Win 10. It is a remote server ASP application if that matters.
    I reinstalled drivers, what else could it be?? Thanks!

    What's the application? I found an older thread that dealt with this same issue for a POS program that the author wrote himself. Turns out timeout was set too long, and the application never returned control to the PC. Take a look and see if this might be relevant.
    HTH,

    thanks,... thats exactly what this is, a point of sale pgm thru an ASP system. Printer does the same thing in 3 other applic. programs on the same system so its not application-specific.
