appreciate any help guys, i do know that application is pretty darn old.
however, printing is possible under an administrator's logon, also gave full permissions to the standard user, but I do still encounter error messages like device context error etc.
Im going to try running on compatibility mode (XP SP2) when I have access to the PC again but i would say that it isn't going to resolve this issue.
thanks in advanced for reading.
