Ghostscript Output Error Follow

I have Seagull driver 7.1.9 Zebra - ZPL installed to print to a Zebra GK420t but when I set the printer driver to spool the print job I get a ghostscript output error in the queue. If I print the job with no spooling i.e. directly to the printer set, no error occurs.

Is this something common enough that someone can direct me to a setting I can change to allow the job to print spool without receiving the error?

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Ghostscript is often used as a translator of postscript into PDF. As Zebra printers use ZPL print language and not PostScript, any attempt to use Ghostscript with this printer will not work. The Ghostscript software is obviously inserting itself in the spooler mechanism which is why you get the error when spooled, but not when you send the native ZPL print code directly to the printer.

Here is some information on what Ghostscript is:

I've not really used Ghostscript myself, so other than uninstalling the Ghostscript software, I'm not sure where you would remove it from your printer driver installations, to stop it from trying to convert your Zebra print jobs. Maybe its a "Print Processor" found under the "Advanced" tab of the printer driver properties. Normally you should use the "WinPrint/RAW" print processor.
