I'm working on an application which automatically generates faxes.The system uses word interop to fill a template .doc file with values (which works fine), but when it comes to be time to print the resulting file to pcl, I'm having issues. So, we've got a HP Laserjet printer set up which prints .pcl files.

Dim appWord As New Word.Application
Dim doc As New Word.Document
appWord.ActivePrinter = PCL_PRINTER
Problem is that when the doc.PrintOut line runs, word complains, popping up a message:I've tried all sorts of combinations of things, but the error message persists. Very occasionally, the thing actually works and generates a usable pcl file, but 98% of the time, the error message pops up and the whole process grinds to a halt.
We have other applications on the same server which do almost exactly the same thing, except they print from excel instead of word, and they work without throwing the error.
