: I got a problem when using the Printing Components Version 2.2 (from in Delphi 6.
: I have written a simple test application to preview and print a component
: i.e dxDBGrid, dxDBTreeView. My "HP Color LaserJet"-printer works fine with
: the application, but when I try to use another printer "HP LaserJet 8100" I
: get an error message. Both printers works with other applications i.e MS
: Word.

: Error Message:
: "Initialization of the dynamic link library
: C:\WINNT\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\2\HPBFDF0.DLL failed. The process is
: termination abnormally"

I've seen this problem many times before with Delphi and HP printers. Some of their drivers seem not to behave the "standard" way, although they always are optimized for MS products --that's why it works with MS Word.

Installing a new (improved & revised) driver often cured HP printer problems. Of course, this is not an option with a newly releases printer model, so in that case installing an old backwards compatible driver is the only solution.
