You have a PostScript printer driver that is installed on a computer that is running Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2008. In an application, you try to print a document to the PostScript printer, or you print the document to a file through the PostScript printer driver. However, the application may exit unexpectedly (crash) when the content is converting to a PostScript (.ps) file.

The following applications are known to experience the crash:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Power Point
  • Adobe applications such as Adobe Frame Maker 8.0

Under certain circumstances, some sections in a document may be lost. For example, you have a document that contains section 1, section 2, and section 3. After you convert the document to a .ps file, and then you convert the .ps file to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file, section 2 is lost.

Note: In this example, both section 1 and section 3 are in font A, although section 2 is in font B.
