I think you have a problem with the printer driver. Basically the WinAPI fails to shows the generic printing dialog box.

What I can suggest you is to catch & handle the raised exception by wrapping your call between try/catch/finally block.

The next release will return a proper GdPictureStatus instead of raising such exception.

Kind regards,
