IE print pdf file error “Bad parameter”

NOTE: I moved to http://www.thesccm.com

How is this related with SCCM? No, it doesn’t 🙂

But because of Adobe Reader was deployed by SCCM, and there is print problem, so it became “SCCM package” problem, and it became my problem. 🙂

So the problem is when open a pdf file in IE, when you click this little “print” icon in IE, we got an error from Adobe Reader “Bad parameter.”


Although I am 100% sure nothing wrong with our Adobe Reader SCCM package, but I intend to find out what is the reason.

This is the setting what cause this “print issue” in my case.

Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Advanced Page
Turn on 64-bit tab processes when running in Enhanced Protected Mode on 64-bit versions of Windows


It was set “Enabled”. As “Help” mentioned, Some ActiveX controls and toolbars maybe not be available when 64-bit processes are used.

As you see, Adobe Reader XI is using 32-bit processes, so in this case, it stop working. (I am using 64-bit Windows 10)


I would suggest set it “Disable” or “Not Configured” if you wants to use Enhanced Protected Mode, and if you are not sure if all your ActiveX components work on 64-bit processe.

This setting you will find in your IE:

Internet Options->Advanced->Settings->Security->Enable 64-bit processes for Enhanced Protcted Mode


By change this setting in GPO “Disable” or “Not Configured”, or uncheck that in IE Advanced Setting, it fixed “bad parameter” problem.

SCCM PXE boot failed after unintall WSUS.

NOTE: I moved to http://www.thesccm.com

Setup my test lab in this weekend to test SCCM TP 1609, and my PXE boot failed. SMSPXE.log shows:

RequestMPKeyInformation: Send() failed.
Unsuccessful in getting MP key information. 80004005.
PXE::MP_InitializeTransport failed; 0x80004005
PXE::MP_ReportStatus failed; 0x80070490,
PXE::CPolicyProvider::InitializeMPConnection failed; 0x80070490


When tried to open MP list, http://my_sccm_server/sms_mp/.sms_aut?mplist, it gave me HTTP Error 500.19

mplist failed 2.PNG

Error Code 0x800700e, unable to load DLL.

So what happend? Well, because I uninstalled WSUS (not ask my way, I had my reason. 😀 ), applicationHost.config files didn’t updated itself.

How to fix it:

Open “C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config”, search “suscomp.dll”, and remove the whole line.
Problem soveled.

<scheme name="xpress" doStaticCompression="false" doDynamicCompression="true" dll="C:\Program Files\Update Services\WebServices\suscomp.dll" staticCompressionLevel="10" dynamicCompressionLevel="0" />


Well, you can also install WSUS back, it will fix the problem for you. 🙂
