When you attempt to change the properties of a document that is currently in the print queue, you may receive the following error message:

Document properties cannot be saved. You may not have permission to
perform this operation.

You may receive this error message even though you are the owner of the print job.


This problem occurs if you do not have Administrator rights. Windows NT allows only users with Administrator rights to change the properties of a document that is in the print queue.

A supported fix is now available, but has not been fully regression-tested and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem.
