Can't Create Printer Object

Post by 71SoCal » Wed Feb 10, 2010 7:53 pm

I just installed the Raster-XChange product.

When I generate a TIFF file as part of my standard printing routine, it works great.

When I try to generate a TIFF file as part of my standard print preview routine, it causes my code to go off into the weeds and crash. It appears that any attempt to create/initialize/touch the print driver object during this phase causes the application to crash. When I step through the driver creation code, the factory call works. On the next call to create the printer, I can't even get the call (or the raw call) to return. My code goes off into a call stack of painting operations that ends up crashing the app.

Normally I would suspect my print preview routine, but if I move the driver creation and initialization code to my mfc application class (it was previously in a statically linked dll), everything works correctly. Just the fact that I moved where the driver code runs makes the difference. I'm initializing exactly like the tracker sample code does.

Has anyone seen a problem like this? Any help would be appreciated.

Please clarify. What specifically causes that crash? Does a drawing operation on the printer DC fails with crash or a call to RXC COM interface method?
Where is the point of the crash - in the system code or in yours? What is the exception code? Could you provide a crash dump?
What "phase" do you mean (in terms of interaction with the system or Raster-XChange printer)?

A complete working sample along with sources that allows to replicate this issue would be very helpful.
