When you use a custom-built application to print custom forms from a Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer, an access violation in Spoolsv.exe may occur.
This problem may occur if a "race" condition occurs between a call to the DeviceCapabilities() function by the print spooler and the AddForm() function by the custom application. If the call to the AddForm () function occurs first, more forms may be generated than the spooler can handle, resulting in an access violation.
For additional information about how to use the AddForm() function and custom forms, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
