[Solved] APC_INDEX_MISMATCH BSOD when printing
Windows 10 crashes when printing due to Microsoft March updates
The Windows 10 Pro KB5000802 cumulative update released yesterday is causing Blue Screen of Death crashes when printing to network printers.
Some of the printer brands known to be affected, include Kyocera, Ricoh, and Dymo.
Using virtual machines that received these updates yesterday, BleepingComputer has rolled back to the March preview updates and is no longer offered the KB5000802 cumulative update like we were yesterday.
This indicates that Microsoft has pulled the updates from Windows Update while they look into the issues. However, the updates are still available via the Microsoft Update Catalog.
How to fix the issue
If you are affected by the printing bug, you can uninstall the Windows 10 KB5000802 cumulative update by closing applications and opening a command prompt. In the command prompt, enter the following command:
wusa /uninstall /kb:5000802
- Press Start and type cmd
- Right Click – run as administrator
- type wusa /uninstall /kb:5000802
Update: 15th March
Microsoft have now released and update to fix the issue. Read more about it here.
