Java Printing - "Memory could not be read" error

Java Printing - "Memory could not be read" error

My project needs simple text printing from Java application. Printing operation crashes with error dialog "Memory could not be read". This occurs at --- getToolkit().getPrintJob(pr,"Printer",null) --- line.

Environment:-- Windows NT, VisualCafé 4.0 Expert edition.

This is working very well in VisualCafé. But outside the VisualCafe (deployment place) it crashes.

I think, difference in DLL files (Bin directory) cause this problem, specifically if Symatec JIT (Just In Time) complier is used.

Any help will be really useful, as my project is going to Production in a week.

Workout Example:

import java.awt.*;

public class Printer extends Frame
    public static void main(String args[])
        Printer pr = new Printer();
        PrintJob pj = pr.getToolkit().getPrintJob(pr,"Printer",null);   /* NOTE */

        Graphics gp = pj.getGraphics();
        gp.drawString("Java Printing is OK",100,100);
