Windows 10 introduces a new settings panel which features most of the settings from Control Panel. One particular setting conflicts with Spindle Professional, causing it to loop when trying to physically print.

This setting automatically sets the default printer to be the last printer selected to print to. When Spindle Professional is configured to use the default Windows printer and this setting is enabled, The default printer will be set to Spindle Pro Auto. As the document that is now passed to Spindle Pro Auto no longer contains any Spindle Professional commands, the process will halt with the Spindle Professional interface displayed.

Applicable Versions

  • Spindle Professional 6.09 (support for Windows 10 was added in 6.09)
