Error Printing Report from Crystal Reports WPF Viewer in .NET 4.0 and Citrix

Former Member

We have a .NET application (in-house built) that prints using Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010. It runs in a Citrix XenApp context. If we run an on-screen report, using the Crystal Reports WPF viewer control, we see the report as expected. However, if we then click the Printer icon within the CR WPF viewer, we get the following error:

    An exception occurred while getting the default printer.

    Win32 error: The system cannot find the file specified.


    at System.Printing.LocalPrintServer.GetDataFromServer(String property, Boolean forceRefresh)

    at System.Printing.LocalPrintServer.get_DefaultPrintQueue()

Hello Richard

This being a Citrix environment, my suspicion would be permissions. See if you can run the app as Admin.

Download the Process Monitor utility. Filter it for your app exe. Run the app until you get the error. Then look at the logs and search for "Access Denied" messages.

Oh, and make sure you're using SP5:

Hi Ludek,

I've passed this information across to the chap responsible for the Citrix environment.

I've also seen another possibly similar issue at Unfortunately the issue referred to in the answer is a broken link. Do you know what the resolution to this thread was?
