Can you plot to file using a "file share" location? i.e. \\\\bcnymfilp01\\Parts_Labels\\88881"
Everything seems to run but when it comes to the plotting, AutoCAD crashes.
Findfile works fine:
Is "\\\\bcnymprtp01\\Proto Label Printer" the actual plot device?
Type -plot at the command line and step through, type ? at plot device and see if it shows up that way in the list.
I am betting all you need is "Photo Label Printer".
Also, you could try forward slashes in lieu of double back slashes. i.e. "//bcnymprtp01/Proto Label Printer"
I find them easier to read.
The plotting to the Fileshare works using the "Letter" paper but not with "Legal" so it has to be something else.
I think it might have something to do with the default paper tray.
I would go to the plot dialog and plot manually.
Make sure you select "Save changes to layout".
Then type -plot at the command line goto detailed configuration, step through the defaults and see if it plots that way.
See what it says when it comes to the paper size.
Ok, now we know that it is not a problem with your programing.
Legal is probably correct.
Maybe it is the driver for the printer and Autocad is having problems with it.
See if there is a driver update.
Thats all I got. I dont have any other ideas.
Maybe someone else has.
