CUPS and Xerox Global Print Driver spooler crash

Product Name: Other - specify product in post

I'm having an issue with Citrix Universal Printing and the Xerox Global Print driver.  Everytime I try to print to a printer (I've tried a WorkCentre 5638, WorkCentre 5230, and WorkCentre 5655) it crashes Explorer.exe and the print spooler.


I've tried the latest version of the PCL6 and PS GPD 5.303.16.  Also tried 5273.2302, and 5185.4200.


Here are the errors I get when I try to print:


Faulting application name: spoolsv.exe, version: 6.1.7601.17777, time stamp: 0x4f35fc1d

The client is our Citrix image and the server is our printer server.  Both have the correct GPD and each time I changed versions I removed the driver package and installed a different version.


Any ideas on how I can get this to work?

Re: CUPS and Xerox Global Print Driver spooler crash

Hi wyadms2,


I am not sure about the citrix UPC error. I could assume you are printing via ICA session or something simliar. If this is true, then I would test printing directly to the printer or using print and point without using ICA channels for printing.


Apart from that tip. In order to attempt troubleshooting please try isolating the print spooler for the driver.

  1. Unistall driver and package
  2. Navigate to %SystemRoot%\System32\Spool\Drivers\x64\3 (or ...\x86\3) delete related left driver files
  3. Restart Print Spooler service.
  4. Install print driver and create the print queue. Use Add printer wizard, point to the print server and select the printer.


2nd part

Open Print Management console

Select the print driver

Right-Click and select "Set Driver Isolation" Select Shared.


If this does not work. You can also select "Isolate". This will isolate the print spooler servicefor that specific driver. Meaning that if the problem exist with the print driver should not corrupt spooler services that are dependent.



You can try this 2nd part first before the all system clean (unistall and reinstall printer)
