CreateDC fails

Post by [email protected] »

I have a Legacy system (c++) that calls CreateDC() to get the NovaPDF printerDC.
everything worked fine when the code was compiled in Microsoft VS 2008.

after I upgraded to VS 2010, the first time CreateDC() is run it will cause an error "Application has stopped working." On 64-bit machines the error will be "Print driver host for 32bit app. has stopped working."
This does not seem to happen on all machines but it happens on about half of them.

Again, this only happens the first time the application is run, after that it seems to run fine.

my customers complain about this error. What can I do.

I did some more testing. when the printer driver is installed and Notepad.exe prints to NovaPDF the same error message happens.
(and will work on the 2nd try)
