    Automatic Windows update stops Print Daemon, prevents sending of notices

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    When an automatic Windows update/restart occurs on a PC running the Print Daemon, the Print Daemon is stopped and fails to process subsequent notices (such as circulation notices). If the Print Daemon is later restarted, it does not process these notices.

    Update interval/time set improperly.

    In the PC's Control Panel, under "Automatic Updates", either:

    1. change "Every day" to "Every week" and make the time of the update/restart *after* the time the notices are produced on that day; or

    2. leave it at "Every day" but make the time of the update/restart *after* the latest time that notices are produced on any day.
