Null Argument Exception When Printing to the Microsoft XPS Document Writer

I have a problem with printing in WPF, it happens consistently on my main development machine but I haven’t been able to reproduce it anywhere else.

And I have a solution.

If anyone else has the same problem please write a comment to this post and I’ll publish my solution, I just want to know if anyone is interested before I spend the time describing the problem and my workaround.

I get an exception of type System.ArgumentNullException

And the call stack is:

mscorlib.dll!System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.HasIllegalCharacters(string[] str) + 0x94 bytes
mscorlib.dll!System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermission.AddPathList(System.Security.Permissions.FileIOPermissionAccess access = Read | Write |PathDiscovery, System.Security.AccessControl.AccessControlActions control =None, string[] pathListOrig, bool checkForDuplicates = false, boolneedFullPath = true, bool copyPathList) + 0x5e bytes
