Error: AppESRIPrintLocal.EXE has encounters a problem and needs to close
While trying to print with ArcPress, the following error may be returned:
"AppESRIPrintLocal.EXE has encounters a problem and needs to close."
The current user does not have read/write access to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS. In some cases, the AppESRIPrintLocal.EXE file also needs to be registered.
Solution or Workaround
Full rights to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS need to be granted by the System Administrator. The file AppESRIPrintLocal.EXE may also need to be registered.
- As the System Administrator, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\, right-click on PRINTERS and select Properties. Select the Security tab.
- Add the user and give the user full permissions to the PRINTERS folder.
Contact the System Administrator if there are difficulties setting permissions.
- If the above error is still returned, navigate to Start > Run, type the following, and click OK:
For example: C:\ArcGIS\bin\appesriprintlocal.exe /regserver
If ArcGIS has been installed to C:\Programs Files\ArcGIS, this command may fail. Open an MS-DOS prompt, change the directory to the ArcGIS\bin install location and run 'appesriprintlocal.exe /regserver'.
