[dba-VB] VS Printer dialogue error

Just a SWAG, but given the "Parameter is invalid" message, I wonder if
the mapping to the printer is different for those client machines.
Assuming this is one or more network printers, that is.  If the printers
are local, no ideas.

Hi all

A VB.Net app is running at a client. The developer is gone and no source
code is at hand. 
One machine can print, the others can't. On those the (localized) error
message below is shown when the print dialog should open.

Any hints what could be causing this? Could it be a missing file (the
parameter), but which?
The machines all run WinXP Pro.
