Cannot Print PDF to PDF Exchange

Post by Freund » Fri May 10, 2019 11:39 am

Hello,

we have a problem with a PDF Dokument.
If we want to print the file do the PDF Exchange printer Driver, it doesn't work.
The Printjob is shortly in the spooler, the processdialog is shown very short and then nothing happens.

See attached file.

We have the original file without watermarks, but there it is the same.

It only happens on windows 7 machines.

Regards,

Christian

Hi Christian,

Thanks for the post - Can you please confirm that you are using the Drivers API SDK and not the end user printer? If you are, please send a sample application so that we can better advise.

Thanks,

Hi,

yes we normally use the Drivers Api.
But If you use the Standard Printer it is the Same with the given PDF.

Normally the is more Data in it.
But there are real data from the customer in it (it is a real bill).
So I removed the Data with the Editor.
But I get the same result. I cannot Print it to the PDF-Printer.

The saveas dialog doesn't show up.

Regards,
Christian

Yes it's version 7.0.0325.0005.
But if I try to print the same document to the actual 8er It doesn' work either.
The same document printed to an other PDF-Creator works.

Hello Freund,

It seems like we will need to ask a colleague from our dev team to look at this, but before I do that - can you please just confirm that this only happens on Win 7 and it works OK on Window 10?

Regards,
Stefan

Hi,

it's at least on three Windows 7 machines at our customer.
And maybe on a windows 10. Currently I don't know. Hopefully I can get a remote sesson to a Windows 10 Machine, where it seems to be.
If I tested it in a Windows 7 VM here, and I had the same Problem one time. After that never again.
But on the windos 7 machines at the customer its still there.

Regards, Christian.
