Do I good understand that problem is in printing?
I have any problems with attached file, but it opens without any images. As you have lot of images in your project so it may be problem, specially in Windows.
First check if images are oversized - resolution reported by Scribus should not extending 300 dpi.
Next check disk space, amount of available memory and swap space, specially during printing before error occurs. To optimize resources using by Scribus again you must check images - often JPG files with few MB on disk may take 20 MB or even more MB of memory.
Another issue may be with color profiles saved with some image or used while printing. Sometimes wrong saved color profile can crash Scribus.

This message is typical of "ouf ot memory" errors.

To avoid memory related issues, we always recommend :
- to avoid using unnecessarily large images : a 100Mb image on a A4 pages is already too large, 30Mb is quite sufficient. And remember we always reason in term of uncompressed data : a 5Mb jpg file can translate to 100Mb of data once uncompressed.
- to split a document into multiple documents if it has lots of images, long text chains, or lots of pages

To split you document, two solutions :
- move temporarily images to another folder, so you can open your document without loading images. Then split your document and move back images to their original place afterwards
- open you document in a text editor and split it by removing the necessary <PAGE>...</PAGE> lines.

Closing is this is a duplicate of already known issue (0004520).
