Print job not getting deleted from spooler queue. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I started a printing job.When spooling complete and spooler started to send print data to printer then i cancel the print job from spooler. Spooler calls the endDocPort() method of my Language Monitor. Language monitor then calls setJob() spooler api to set the job status as  JOB_CONTROL_LAST_PAGE_EJECTED but still the job is not getting deleted from spooler.The job status remains as Deleting-Sent to printer.And job remains in spooler forever unless i restart the spooler service again.

    Any idea why job is not getting deleted considering the fact that i have call the setJob() method(Spooler API) with JOB_CONTROL_LAST_PAGE_EJECTED.I used JOB_CONTROL_DELETE status as well but it is also not working.As per MSDN documentation this should delete the job from spooler.Your help will be appreciable.
