Solutions to the printer bug and FotoSketcher 3.95 alpha 1

Hi all,

Recently a few users have reported problems running FotoSketcher because of a printer related error message.

When launching FotoSketcher, you may get a pop-up window reading "Wait for the connection to printer or cancel the connection". This will unfortunately prevent FotoSketcher from running.


The issue may well be related to a recent Windows update, but I have been unable to reproduce the problem. 

It can occur on both Windows 10 or Windows 11 PCs.

If this happens to you, one possible workaround would be to make sure that you have a default printer selected in your Windows settings.

Alternatively, you can download an early version of FotoSketcher 3.95 here: https://fotosketcher.com/FotoSketcher_3.95_alpha1.exe

This alpha version should no longer crash on startup if no printer is detected.

Please let me know in comments below if you still have the problem or if this alpha version solves it for you (fingers crossed).

All the best,
