FIX: The DrvDestroyFont Function is Never Called on Windows 2000
Article ID: 811916 - View products that this article applies to.
The DrvDestroyFont function is primarily used by printer drivers to notify the driver that a font realization is no longer needed and that the driver can now free any associated data structures it has allocated. However, even if a driver implements this function, DrvDestroyFont is never called.
This problem occurs because the User Mode Printer Driver (UMPD) hook for the DrvDestroyFont function is missing.
