After June 2017 updates, Microsoft print to PDF is no longer saving the PDF file, from Visual Basic program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since the June 2017 Microsoft update, we have a few computers that will no longer create a PDF file when using the 'Microsoft print to PDF' printer option.

    We print a form from a Visual Basic program, and it does create a link to the file it is supposed to create in the 'Recent files' list, but does not save the file in the directory (ie: C:\Temp).

    I have tried to remove the update KB4022725 but that did not fix the issue.

    I think the issue may be related to the comdlg32.ocx or comdlg32.dll file in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 directory.

    Is anyone having the same problem?  Is there a solution to this?
