I saw this type of error on Cform v7.01.400.6119 running on Windows Server 2012 R2. The only way to get the server functional again was to restore from a backup. The Director printers were changed to Local Port NUL today.

Many thanks for your response

Do you happen to know if there is a newer 7.1 version that isn't affected by this issue?

This change appears to be cause of the issue

"Addresses a security vulnerability by preventing applications that run as a SYSTEM account from printing to local ports that point to a file. Failing print jobs log error 50, “The request is not supported.” in event ID 372 in the PrintService\Admin event log. To address this issue going forward, make sure your applications or services run as a specific user or service account. "

I have Cfservice and CFmessage log on as specific user - this doesn't seems to work.

If anyone has a working solution - I'd appreciate some advise please.

Thanks
