Stop error message when you try to print content that includes a bitmap on a Windows Vista-based computer: "Stop error code 0x00000001"

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When you try to print content that includes a bitmap on a Windows Vista-based computer, you may receive the following Stop error message:
Stop 0x00000001 (Parameter1, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4)
This problem occurs if Windows Vista copies the bitmap from a user mode printer driver (UMPD).
This problem occurs because of an error in the Win32k.sys file.

When Windows Vista copies a bitmap from a UMPD as the source, Windows Vista has to call into user mode. If this thread puts an internal lock on the BitBlt function during the call into user mode, this problem occurs.
