NT 4.0 and SP 5 Print Font Problems

By p175six2 ·
I upgraded to Service Pack 5 last week and now I am experiencing printing problems particularly with the default "fixedsys" font. I can print locally with the fixedsys font but I can not print through the network tcp/ip print server with the same font. All I get is a blank page. I can print through the network server with the fixedsys font if I select "bold" type.

SP 5 replaces some dll's for printing. Print a test page to the network printer and delete the printer and the the driver files listed at the bottom of the test page. One file should be in use and will be unable to be deleted. Reboot and reinstall the network printer.

If you are booting directly to the NT CD and installing from it you can experience this problem. Create the 3 boot disks and boot off of them and then provide the driver you have when requested for additional devices.
