Spoolsv.exe ends suddenly at Windows 2000 with RISO printer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    From one of our application while trying to print, spoolsv.exe ends suddenly.

    This problem only occurs on Win 2000 and with RISO printer and on other OS i.e. Win XP with RISO it works fine.

    Also at Win2000 with other printers it works fine.

    And at Win2000 with RISO printer while trying to print from MS word and PDF no problem occurred.

    Thank You

  • A unsopported driver for your third part program, try with a driver your system's know to rule that out. The printout will be ugly, but if it work to not crash then your driver need to be changed (it might force you to change your OS too, as it's kinda old)

  • It's so old, it's no longer listed on the End of Support web site.

    I did find something written about 3 years ago.  I do appreciate hanging onto the old stuff but it's time to move forward.

    First, let’s discuss the upcoming changes for Windows 2000.  All editions of Windows 2000 will reach the end of the Extended Support phase on July 13, 2010.  This will be the end of support for Windows 2000.

    As you may recall, at the end of the Extended Support phase, Business & Developer products are no longer publicly supported, although Self-Help Online support (such as Microsoft online Knowledge Base articles, FAQs, troubleshooting tools, and other resources) will be available for a minimum of 12 months after the product reaches the end of its support.  This means that there is no more paid support, no support assistance and no further security updates.  Due to this, customers are highly encouraged to move to a supported product as soon as possible.
