SYMPTOMS
When you use a custom form to print to a network printer, a "PC LOADLETTER" (or similar) message appears on the printing device. This onlyhappens when running different language versions of the Windows NT softwareon the client and server. For example, a client may be running the Dutchversion of Windows NT Workstation and your print server may be running theU.S. version of Windows NT Server.

NOTE: This problem only occurs with PCL-based printing devices.
CAUSE
This problem occurs because the text strings representing the built-in formnames are localized.

When connecting to a print server, the form names at the client arecompared with those at the server. Since the form names are localized, thiscan cause the client's local forms database to become inconsistent with thelist of forms at the server. This in turn can cause the printer driver toselect the wrong paper size.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
