I archive regularly and compact after archiving. Apparently a fix is to disable 'printer status notification' within the drivers. After all the turmoil and brain-damage we went through confronting this nightmare, I and countless others, I'm sure would like to know exactly what caused it to blow up after printing only one time; I've never seen a bug like that before or after this time. The first thing I do is turn them off. I hope this also fixes other peoples problems.
While we haven't been able to repro this issue, we have been able to root-cause from dump files provided by a few customers. Seems like after updating to 8. I'm trying desperately hard to find a fix, but to no avail. To open these files, you must first enter the password. This caused my clients untold agony, not to mention me, because I was expected to explain what the problem was and magically fix it.
Finally just exactly what, technically, was causing the problem? So either they are restricting something or I am not doing it right. I also have issues with other printers. Right click of the images, open properties, click Change. So first delete the Normal. Shane This fixed it for me. I hope this helps, and again, apologies for the delay in response. I have tried logging in as Administrator, as well as, the Standard User.
Hope this helps and good luck to all. It's also light-years easier than uninstalling and reinstalling all of the Office programs. Both logins have the problem. When I take my laptop off of the network, I have noticed a bluescreen error followed by a shutdown. Try these steps to do this task: a. Finally just exactly what, technically, was causing the problem? Any help would be appreciated.
Microsoft Office I have been dealing with this issue for months and had to put it aside because of the flu and then some urgent hardware problems. If you are still experiencing this issue, please reply to this thread. Sorry, rant over, but yeah, Office 2013 has officially ruined my day today. After change the setting Printer Status Notification to Disabled it was working as Shane described above. If you are still experiencing this issue, please reply to this thread.

I'm seriously frustrated to be honest, 2013 has been out for some time now yet there are lots of reports of these issues online. It does not occur with other-brand printers as far as I can tell. All, my apologies for the delayed response. Find problem files: Those jpeg file sizes are bigger than other jpeg in a folder. For whatever reason this solved all of our problems on all 10 systems. Word 2013 crashes when printing: If Word 2013 crashed whenever you try to print then this happens due to driver issues with printer. One recommendation I was told was to disable background printing.
Shane We've managed to fix the problem, but via a fairly unexpected route. Thanks for all the advice and suggestions, a little more info: seems that the first print is fine within Office 2013 with this setting enabled, however subsequent attempts to print cause rundll32. The problem is there are around 13 printers and all of them are the same but some reason when I go to each printer it wants to install the driver again. When the second page prints, it prints about a quarter of the way then crashes. All, I have been reading this post, and have tried to reproduce this issue. I have instlled Office 2013 on my Surface Pro Windows 8. I do a preview and find it communicates with many print driver.
I hope this also fixes other peoples problems. Remember this was not just a minor annoyance; you could only print one job at a time and then the computer would be useless to print again often locking up completely until it was rebooted. Disabling 'printer status noficiations' does seem to prevent this, and printing from Office 2013 consistently works without issues. The best thing to do is to go to 'See What's Printing' which will get you to the print queue, where you can get to the printer properties to change the settings. Any help would be appreciated.
All, I have been reading this post, and have tried to reproduce this issue. But it all depends on what function you are performing on the Word. After installation of Office 2013 only some pages are printed like all the other wrote it before. Disable bi-directional printing while you're at it. We were having similar issues on 10 brand new Dell Optiplex 3010 installed with Windows 7 x64 and Office 2013 x64.
