InfoConnect Desktop for Unisys 16.1
Microsoft Windows 10


The Attachmate.Emulation.Frame.EXE will crash or just disappear from memory (taking the open host session with it) when using a WS-Discovery (WSD) network connected printer as the Default Windows printer on Windows 10.  This problem only occurs when selecting Print screen commands in a UTS session, whereas 3270 and T27 sessions seem to work fine.  The problem occurs when selecting File | Print… or File | Print Settings… and a message will appear that the “Attachmate.Emulation.Frame.EXE has stopped working”, or the InfoConnect host session and InfoConnect Workspace will just close with no error.

If the WS-Discovery printer is NOT the Default Windows Printer or if the check box in the Print Settings dialog that says “Use Windows Default printer” is unselected than the problem does not occur.  If the network connected printer (WS-Discovery) is instead set up to be connected to Windows 10 with a Standard TCP/IP port or via USB Port it will work fine.  The problem only happens with WSD printers.


This is currently being evaluated by Micro Focus Development and may be resolved in a future release.

Workaround Steps:
Do not set the WSD printer as the Default Windows Printer or else set up the WSD printer as a Standard TCP Port or USB Shared printer to the Windows 10 workstation.
