this user-made hotfix is for splwow64.exe on windows 7 and server 2008 r2 when printing from 32-bit programs in 64-bit windows where splwow64.exe won't exit. there is a timeout value in the registry that needs to be set. see Microsoft KB 2815716. this is not fixed by a windows update (yet). I made this .reg file to fix this. you can edit the .reg file to check it out. it's just a UNICODE16 notepad file in a specific file format, so you can right click and pick edit. the microsoft site has a hotfix available, but it is only available through email (?!).
