my solution worked for years without any Problems with Printerswitch. This spring, i moved up everithyng to FM19_64bit and updated also my License. Still everything went very well until the last Windows10Protes.
Since then we have FileMaker crashing but only on some Computers when a script changes the printersettings:

I tried recapturing the corresponding Settings, Plugin-Update, reverting to Database-Backups... nothng changed :-(

Do you have any ideas?

Many thanks

    Hi Daniel,

    Thank you for contacting us.
    We haven't received other reports from our users that they have problems since the last Windows update.

    Did something change in the printer config? Drivers for example?

    What happens when you open the capture and restore example that is supplied with the PrinterSwitch installer? Does it also crash when you capture a new setup and try to print?

    Kind regards,

    It turned out that it was 1 bad/corrupted printerdriver (Dymo Label) that i can not uninstall.
    I’m still working on this ☹
