You crashed in the OS GDI library.

Most likely something in your specific printer driver called the GDI library with bad arguments, but it's also possible that Windows 8 printing code has some bugs.

It's also odd that the 32 bit version of GDI is being loaded - Photoshop 64 bit can't even link against that.

Try uninstall various printer drivers and reinstall?

You could try that. Win 8 isn't officially out yet, so it's not a supported OS at this time. Wouldn't hurt to report the issue to Microsoft. It's likely a bad driver/OS issue.
