“Write Fault Error Writing Device PRN” Error Message

PSS ID Number: Q10338 Article last modified on 11-16-1992

1.07 1.10 1.12 2.00 2.10 2.20 MS-DOS

Summary: The following error message is generated if a COBOL tries to print to a printer that is not on-line: “Write Fault Error Writing Device PRN Abort Retry Ignore?” This MS-DOS error message is generated after one minute has elapsed. This delay occurs as a result of a change that was made to MS-DOS Version 3.00. The same behavior is exhibited with a MS-DOS “COPY filename PRN” command.
