Create PDF file on Windows 7
« on: February 06, 2013, 03:47:54 AM »
I am sure this came up last month but I am able to find the answer.

I am using NT7.05.

When I try to create PDF file I get   "The Print procedure failed to create the PDF file [X:\Test Version\web\reports\$$$09205.pdf]"

PDF has been working for a couple of years and works OK if I run on Windows XP.

\web\reports is available also I am running web server as administrator.

I am using Clarion 6.3 with NT7.05 PDF generator from Softvelocity.

Cheers

Vinnie

check the following:

you have a default printer driver installed
if running as a service, try to run as app on desktop
check security setting for folder you are creating report

Thanks Kevin.

Yes default printer installed.

Yes running from desktop (as administrator)

Security setting OK.  Server creates reports folder if I delete it. Also tried copying folder from XP machine

This used to work before version NT7.

Hallo Vinnie,

Examples works for you? Adobe reader installed? Did you try with different browser? Try disable also the anti-virus if you have one... and turn off Windows defender from MS.
To be sure it's not a security restrictions try to create a new txt or doc file in that directory to see if it's possible.Try enable debugging and see what kind of message will show you.

Regards,
Robert

Thanks Robert for you time.

Looks like it is my Windows 7 installation. I have now tried on another system and it works OK.

Thanks anyway.

Cheers
