Unable to print tasklists

Hello,

We are attempting to print tasklists and have run into an issue. We have tested on two workstations and both exhibit the same issue. When doing a preview a dialog box pops up that says "Generating Page: 1". No matter how long we wait the dialog box never goes away. Has anyone run into this?


Thanks
Todd

  • Hi Todd,

    I have no problem with doing a preview for printing tasks. You don't mention what version of the GroupWise client you are running?

    Cheers,
  • Thank you for the reply.

    We were running 14.0.0. I have since upgraded the server to 14.0.2 and have upgraded my client to 14.0.2. These upgrades have not fixed this issue.

    I've been experimenting with this a little bit. When I open the GroupWise client and go to the Tasklist the only thing that is displayed is the informational screen that starts off "Use the Tasklist folder to keep track of ......." It's not until I click out of the Tasklist and go back in that I can see my existing tasks. If I attempt to print preview the Tasklist BEFORE going into the Tasklist folder it does preview but the tasks are not shown in the preview. If I print preview the Tasklist AFTER going into the Tasklist folder GroupWise hangs and then crashes.

    Here is the event from the event viewer:

  • Hi Todd,

    Is this just one user or everyone?

    Please let us know - thanks.

  • This issue is present on two computers. Both of those computers originally had GroupWise 2012 installed. They were upgraded to GroupWise 14.0.0 and then to 14.0.2.

    I just tested another computer that originally had 2012 on it. I upgraded to 14.0.2 and it can print the Tasklist without issue. I went ahead and uninstalled/reinstalled 14.0.2 on one of the workstations with the problem and the problem persists.
  • Hi,

    I'm trying to narrow down if this is a user database issue or a user profile issue on said workstation.

    Please can you log into a working workstation with the credentials used on a workstation that is not working [hope that I'm making sense here!]. If the problem follows the user around then we have a database issue. If the problem does not follow the user then we, potentially, have a Windows user profile issue.

    Please let us know - thanks.

    Cheers,

    This makes me think it relates to the printing subsystems of Windows.
    What versions of Windows are involved here? How are printers deployed?
    Have you used any system cleaning tools such as CCleaner (in case it is a
    bad temp file or such somewhere)?

    All our workstations are running Win 7 64. Printers are deployed through ZenWorks.

    I have not used any system cleaning tools. I'm not a big fan.
  • I attempted to print the task list for an affected user on a known working workstation and I was able to print the affected user's task list. The problem did not follow the user.

    One thing to note, the test workstation has client 14.0.2. The two affected workstations originally had 14.0.0 installed and were upgraded to 14.0.2.

    Ok, so we've ruled out user database problem. The fact that the issue does not follow the user points to a workstation problem. I would create a new Windows profile and see if that makes a difference. The fact that the clients have been upgraded shouldn't be an issue here. I've got machines that have been upgraded from V8 through all the versions to V2014.

    Try the Windows profile thing and please do let us know how it goes.

    On an affected system, manually setup a printer(preferably different
    than the users normal default) to see if it has the same problem, or if
    you encounter problems in setting it up.

    I've seen that before, either it just sounds too simple and/or having
    been stung by it being done wrong. Doing a good cleaning solves more
    than its fair share of problems, hence being something strongly
    recommend quickly going through at the beginning of troubleshooting odd
    system problem.

    A basic run of Disk Cleaner and Disk Defragmentor (both that come with
    Windows in: Programs, Accessories, System Tools) are like the basic
    cheapy oil change. A good cleaning tool such as CCleaner is like a good
    oil change and other fluids check.
    Of course there is the new profile option (replace engine) or reimage
    the machine (new car). But if you use the old profiles on the new
    image it is like putting your old engine in the new car.
