2 other computers hang trying to print to pdf (there is no error message
but the pdf is not created)

After the hang do they come back or do you have to task end Paradox or reboot
machine to clear the hang?

What is the default printer on these machines compared to others?
What is the default printer within Paradox at time of printing?
Are you switching printers in code?
Is there an application set of code or just using interactive paradox?

There are certain cases where paradox hangs when switching printers via code.
