mysterious printer invocation

Go to solution

I am using LV2017 32-bit on a Win10 machine.  At a high level, the bizarre problem I'm seeing is when I click Exit on a sub-dialog, a screenshot of the VI is sent to the printer.  Some users complain that ONE Note  opens and the screenshot (that I see go to the printer) appears.  I'm attaching as much as I can to see if anyone has a clue as to what could be happening.  Overall, though, my main GUI has a menu option at the top, so when I select Setup::Launch Debug Msg Display, the Launch.png code activates and the VI in the True case (Debug Msg is called. When the Exit button is clicked (see Exit.png), the Remote Desktop Conn popup appears, which sends a printout to our printer (see pdf).  The Exit case (see exit case.png) should just exit the dialog.  The Timeout case of the Debug Msg is the only case with some smarts and it calls a couple of VIs (Decode Debug Msg and Smart Buffer, both attached).  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi mrbean,


open the VI properties and check the last page "print options"!

If things are still unclear: read the LabVIEW help for that page…
