Office2PDF hang when processing > 1000 html files

Post by kiankoh1 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 3:50 am

I had installed Office2PDF 4.0 on Windows server 2003 Enterprise Edition, SP2.

I had tried to run Office2PDF to convert my html files(10k+ files) to pdf. However, after so many tries, I found Office2PDF can only process around 1000 files, and it will stop. So I have to manually exiting Office2PDF, copy the converted files away, before I can start office2pdf again to process the rest of the file. Each time when the Office2PDF hang, it will leave behind a printer driver appended by a number, ie. "PDF-XChange 4.0 (4)".

Can you advise what could be the problem, and what I can do to make Office2PDF run smoothly as a batch job and processing all files I put in the watched directory, even in the many thousands.

Hello kiankoh1,

First please do check the build number of our drivers that is installed on your machine, and if that's not the current latest 198 - please consider updating, as the problem might have already been resolved.

If you have the latest build - and are still experiencing problems - please try to monitor the memory usage while our drivers are converting those files - and let us know if there is some significant memory increase.

As an alternative in the mean time - try processing them at smaller patches - e.g. 8-900 at a time - and you can then easily merge the 8-900 page PDFs into a single large one if that was your intention.
