BUG: SET PDSETUP TO Does Not Release _PDPARMS

ID: Q108170

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.5a, 2.5b, 2.6

SYMPTOMS

The _PDPARMS array is not released when a printer driver is deactivated by using the SET PDSETUP TO command or by selecting NONE in the Printer Driver Setup dialog box. Instead, the _PDPARMS array stays resident in memory and retains the last escape codes loaded into it.

RESOLUTION

To release the _PDPARMS array, issue the following command:

   RELEASE  _PDPARMS

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

When a printer driver setup is loaded by using the command

   SET PDSETUP TO <printer_driver_name>

or by selecting a printer driver in the Printer Driver Setup dialog box, the printer driver program (GENPD.APP) creates and populates the _PDPARMS array. Additional reference words: FoxDos 2.50a 2.50b 2.60 buglist2.50a buglist2.50b buglist2.60 genpd KBCategory: kbprg kbbuglist KBSubcategory:
