Improve printing speed
If you experience performanceproblems related with printing try this:
It is not the framework that is slow, it is printing as a whole that is slow.
Apparrently, if you use the "add printer" wizard in vista64 (and maybe
vista32?) to attach to a network printer, all access to all printing
functions, even local printers, is 100x slower.
So instead, when you want to add the printer, create a local port named
\servernameprintername (substituting your names of course)
Unbelievably, deleting my network printer added via the wizard, and
re-adding it as above, completely solved the issue.
I can not take credit for the fix, I found it here...
