OK no, this not a script related post, but it's one that has caused me enough grief to warrant posting here.
Does Illustrator crash on you every time you try to save a document in CS3 or CS4 on windows XP? Fear not, the answer is simple. The answer is here.
In short, if you don't have a print spooler running, Illustrator crashes ... all your work is instantly, and without warning, vaporized.
The sad part is that I've spent months using a half-assed work around where I created a new XP user for whom the files would save fine. (Since it didn't default to the same printer)
I knew there was a simple answer!!! Hope it helps some of you as well!
