"Error – Sent to Printer" error when you try to send a large print job to a Web Services for Devices-based printer in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7.

  • You connect a Web Services for Devices-based printer to the computer. The printer has a slow data connection.

  • You try to send a large print job to the Web Services for Devices-based printer.

In this scenario, the print job fails, and you receive the following error message:

Error – Sent to Printer.

Cause

This issue occurs because the print job times out after a hard-coded time limit of 5 minutes is exceeded. Therefore, the WSDMON port monitor cannot send all the data for the print job to the printer, and the print job fails.

Resolution

After you install this hotfix, the hard-coded time limit of 5 minutes is removed. Therefore, the print job does not time out after 5 minutes. Additionally, the user can cancel the print job while the WSDMON port monitor sends the print job to the printer.
