When an application uses GDI+ to print to a color printer on a Windows Server 2003-based, Windows Vista-based, or Windows Server 2008-based computer, ICM color matching is not performed
Consider the following scenario:
- An application uses GDI+ to print images to a color printer in one of the following Microsoft operating systems:
- Windows Server 2003
- Windows Vista
- Windows Server 2008
- The printer uses an Image Color Matching (ICM) color profile for color matching.
In this scenario, the color profile is not applied to the output. This may cause the colors of the image that is printed to differ from your expectations.
Note: This problem does not occur on Windows XP-based computers.
