FaxPrint - Driver Issues/Windows 7

Mike Apr 18, 2013 03:52PM EDT

Hi -
We seem to be having intermittent problems with Windows 7 installs when using the FaxPrint drivers. In a small number of installs the FaxPrint driver appears to install correctly, but attempting to print causes an error in the OS, and the job never makes it as far as the print queue.

The initial error states "PrintIsolationHost.exe" has crashed. A full print of the windows error log is below. Digging through the error logs, the "PrintIsolationHost.exe" error is always followed by "Fax4Driver EventID 7 BeginWrite Failed". If you display the information which would be sent to Microsoft, the system displays the following message:

"Files that help describe the problem:
Read our privacy statement online:
If the online privacy statement is not available, please read our privacy statement offline:

None of the files listed appear to actually exist on the system.

A little more background: This does not happen on every windows 7 install. The user account is an administrator, and UAC is turned off. The system is 64 bit, but we have working installs on other x64 Windows 7 Machines. The system is up to date on patches. I've checked the driver isolation level - it appears the systems that are working are set to 'None', but changing it on the failed systems doesn't appear to make a difference.

Any ideas where we should start troubleshooting this?

Thanks -

If the BeginWrite is failing it sounds like the driver is getting an exception trying to write the fax file into the configured directory.

If you are specifying a Print Files path then make sure the user has read/write/modify permissions in that directory. Otherwise if you dont specify a path the path will default to the users TEMP dir.

Thanks for your interest in our products and please let us know if you have any questions.

Interesting. Looks like that got it.

We were using the default temp file location, but it appears a security setting on these machines was making that un-writeable.

Your welcome, I've written this up however since it should return more gracefully than causing an exception in the process.
