Problems printing from .NET 4.5 application to XPS-based printer.

Applies to: .NET Framework 4.5Windows 8 ProWindows 8 Enterprise


When printing from a .NET Framework 4.5 application using an XPS-based print driver, you may experience the following issues:

1. If you make changes to the Printer settings, the default print setting values set in the Printer Property in Device and Printers are used instead.

2. If the user sets the Print Preview "on" as default in the Printer Properties, print execution always ends up with Preview open again and again (looping) unless the user cancels the print.


Microsoft is aware of these issues and is working on a hotfix.
