In V4 print driver Japanese OS, moresetting crash


  • Hi,

    In Japanese system, I if set watermark in Print Queue from control panel (Devices & Printers) and re-open the printer UI. It reopen correctly and I found watermark settings there. But in windows store application when I click on moresetting, got a call inside OnActivated() which I override in my app, there I catch args when it is of "PrintTaskSettings" type, then I tried to get PrinterExtensionContext from args after typecasting it to "PrintTaskSettingsActivatedEventArgs" it is getting NULL, It through exception "error code -2147467259 Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component."  Why it is getting NULL in this scenario? 

    Thanks & Regards,

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
