I have a Windows 7 x86 system and a printer that is shared publicly in my workgroup. When I try to print to that printer from a Windows 2000 Pro sp4 box, the print job gets into the printers queue, but then hangs the print queue.
From both systems, you can view the print job, but the job never prints until you reboot the windows 7 host system. In addition, you can't delete the print job until you reboot the host windows 7 system also.
Any print jobs that come in after the one from the Win2K box get hung up waiting for the stuck job to print.
What can I do to troubleshoot this problem? Is this a known problem? Am I just using systems that are too far apart and just aren’t speaking a close enough dialect of the same language?
