Microsoft’s Windows Health Dashboard notes the issues arose in version 18362.357, causing print jobs to be canceled or failing altogether. The dashboard also mentions that affected devices could include older versions of Windows 10 dating back to version 1607 in addition to Windows 8.1, Windows 7 SP1, and Windows Server.
The company says users should be able print the file after the first error, but that a restart could work if the failure is persistent. If all else fails, it also notes that those using the v4 print driver might be able to install v3 to correct the issue.
The company says that it is “working on a resolution” for the issue and “will provide an update in an upcoming release.” Hopefully it will get sorted out sooner than later.
