    We run a Windows service installed on an application server sending print jobs to various network printers via a print server. We’ve decided to upgrade the application server from Windows Server 2012 R2 to Windows Server 2019. Suddenly the print request (.Print(False,False,False)) changed from 3 seconds between print jobs to 30 seconds between print jobs.

    Active Reports version 11.1.9726.0

    I’ve created a test Winform application, that calls a simple section report (code-based) with minimal content and I’m able to reproduce the problem (30 seconds to print).

    The test application works fine (3 seconds) on my Windows 10 dev machine.

    I’ve tried another printer, playing with the settings on the printer and I’ve tried Active Reports 13. But without success.

    Any idea what could be the cause of this behavior?

    Do you have any suggestion on how to proceed?

    Where is this case CAS-21418-K8Y8T9 as this is the only reference i can find to it. We have customers using terminal server and we just upgraded to AR16 and turning documents to the printer takes about 1 minute, whereas when we were running on AR11 it was <1 second. Nothing in their network changed.
