A Windows 2000-based Terminal Services server may generate a "Stop 0x1E" or "Stop 0x50" error message during a Terminal Services client print session. This may be caused by selecting a particular font in the document that is being printed. Such fonts include:
  • Type 1 multiple master fonts (legacy fonts)
  • Far East fonts containing both English and a localized name
This problem can occur if such fonts are installed on the computer or are accessed as printer fonts.
The error is caused by a comparison operation within the font data.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
