When we issue the PrSw_PrintSetup("restore|" ) command Filemaker Pro 15v2 64bit is crashing.

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This usually happens when you try to restore a setup that was captured on a different computer.

    Please try our capture/restore sample file as a test. Do a capture in the demo file and then make a print with that setup.Does that work?

    If it works, then make a new setup for that computer will probably fix it.

    Kind regards,

    I tried that and I'm still getting the crash.

    When assigning a samsung printer it doesn't crash. But if I switch to a brother HL-2240 then it starts crashing.

    Hi Jason,

    Was this with the example file?

    And did it work in FileMaker Pro 15v01?

    Kind regards,
