Unidrv.dll print support for JPEG pass-through and PNG pass-through in Windows Server 2003


When you use Joint Photographic Expert Group (JPEG) pass-through or Portable Network Graphics (PNG) pass-through to print on an inkjet print device in Microsoft Windows Server 2003, the Unidrv.dll driver does not function correctly. The Unidrv.dll driver must permit JPEG pass-through or PNG-pass-through to support borderless printing, red-eye reduction, and Exchangeable Image File Format (EXIF) print support.


This problem occurs because the Unidrv.dll driver does not support JPEG pass-through or PNG pass-through. To resolve this problem, you must install this hotfix.
