    Does it still happen if you update to the latest version 7.0.86?

    If you are running 6.1, can you send your log by holding down shift-ctrl-9
    from Sparkbooth's main screen?
    Or see

    Wired thing i noticed. If I hit ctrl p when the window is minimized its
    fine but if its maximized and hit crtl p it closes out.

    yes it prints fine after people take their photo. It just when I want
    another copy and hit ctrl p is when it closes out the program and i have
    to restart

    It seems to be a quirk that Windows is causing.

    I just tested it both Minimize and full screen and
    it did print for both with Ctrl+P ...

    But at first it would not work for some UNKNOWN reason
    that I have no idea why...

    SO, what I did was closed the software and reopened it,
    then I did a session and after it was completely finished
    back on the session screen... I hit Ctrl+p and it printed in Minimized
    then went to Full screen (did not close it) and did Ctrl+P again
    and it also printed fine... so it is something strange that Windows is causing.

    I suggest at your next event, you do a 100% test before
    starting the event... just as I did doing a session in the normal screen
    you use during events (either Minimized or Full) and make sure
    the Ctrl+P works... if it doesn't - close the software and do it again
    without changing the screen size... It should work fine all night.

    One thing that I always do is provide a print for everyone in the booth
    and I have it set to only print 1 - so when 3 or more go in the booth
    I just use the Arrow RIGHT key to add another print to this session
    this saves me having to do a Ctrl+p after the session...
    That Arrow Right can be clicked more that once for more prints
    See attached on how to set it and what it shows at the bottom of the live view screen

    Can you do me a favor and try doing the reprint the Page Up or Up Arrow
    setup for Reprint. See attached screenshot
    Let me know if it closes Sparkbooth like ctrl-P does?

    Change arrow up and down to reprint and yes both arrows still caused it to
    close the program.

    Thanks for checking that. Can you try disabling the sound and see if
    reprinting closes Sparkbooth? Go to Settings > General > uncheck Enable

    Thanks for checking that. I don't know what else to try. Would it be
    possible for me to remote into your computer to take a closer look? Here
    are the instructions on how to setup the remote session
    I can be available for this tomorrow at 7p PST
