.Net update affects printing from some applications

We have received comments from our readers that the most recent Microsoft .Net framework update may have affected printing from some applications. TurboTax has released an update to address this issue in their software and Microsoft has updated the MS12-025 KB article to indicate they are aware of the problem.

Microsoft's suggested workaround is:

"To print from an affected Windows Forms application, print the content to a file on your computer instead of directly printing to a printer device. For example, print to a PDF, XPS, or any other supported format file. You can then open the file that you created and print directly from there."

If you are aware of other software affected by this issue, please let us know through our comment section or via our contact form.
