  • Stack trace:

    CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Controllers.ISCRPrintReportOptions.AddPrinterPageRange(Int32 rangeStart, Int32 rangeEnd)
    in Xxxxxx.CRPE.CRPEManager.Print(PrintJob pj, PrinterSettings printerSetting, PageSettings pageSetting) in C:\Workarea\Agilis\XSolving.CRPE\CRPEManager.vb:riga 512

  • Microsoft Visual Studio

Reproducing the Issue

  • Use the following code to do direct print to printer:


            Dim pDoc = New System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument
            Dim rasPROpts = New CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Controllers.PrintReportOptions
            Dim printLayout = New CrystalDecisions.Shared.PrintLayoutSettings
            Dim rptClientDoc As CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ClientDoc.ISCDReportClientDocument
            rptClientDoc = pj.ReportDocument.ReportClientDocument
            rasPROpts.JobTitle = pj.ReportTitle
            rasPROpts.PaperSize = pagesetting.PaperSize.RawKind
            rasPROpts.PrinterName = printersetting.PrinterName
            rasPROpts.NumberOfCopies = printersetting.Copies
            rasPROpts.Collated = printersetting.Collate
            rasPROpts.PaperSource = Convert.ToInt16(pagesetting.PaperSource.RawKind)
            rasPROpts.PrinterDuplex = printersetting.Duplex
            rasPROpts.PrinterName = printersetting.PrinterName
            rasPROpts.AddPrinterPageRange(printerSetting.FromPage, printerSetting.ToPage)
            Catch ex As Exception
            Agilis.ShowMessage(ex.Message, Windows.MessageBoxButton.OK, Windows.MessageBoxImage.Error)
 End Try


  • The code depends on the PrintControll.dll
  • The dll is an ActiveX and has not been updated to 64 bit
