Large Printjob Registry Errors - 02/17/10 05:38 PM

Hello there,

I'm printing a very large job (11,000 or so on the list), and when double-sided printing comes into play that number is over 22,000.

Using PSM 5.2, printing to a Fiery Enabled Xerox 4110, it's a one page, double sided booklet fold.

The error I'm having during spooling. Being such a large job it takes quite a while to spool (even when using OPI), but around 15,000 I get this error:
Messagebox Title:Error:2012::EFPrnInf.cpp::GenerateRegistryPaths::RegOpenKey::HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Messagebox Dialog: RegOpenKey

With the only button given "okay".

When "okay" is click the spool count goes up one and the message comes back.

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Brandon

It sounds like the printer driver keeps writing to the registry and eventually runs into some limit. You might want to check if there's any updated driver version available for your platform.

Does it help if you enable split job in the print dialog in PSM?

No, that might be the cause though. My printer's driver (just updated in january) does not have a subset finishing option for the fold on this job, so I split it each 2 pages to emulate that. Maybe it's because it thinks that there are 11,000 jobs instead of 11,000vdp?

That might have something to do with it.

I'm curious, which platform are you using? And which print technology did you select in PSM?

What do you mean exactly by platform and print technology? We're running WindowsXP/Windows Vista (different machines) and the driver we sent to was a PostScript driver.

The print technology setting in PSM is displayed in the bottom part of the Print dialog, and it can be changed in Edit > Preferences > Print job. The default setting is Optimized PostScript.

I was curious if you tried FreeForm or FreeForm 2 since those two technologies have special subset finishing handling that might work properly for your Fiery Enabled RIP.
