Process "pdfsaver5.exe" runs endlessly

Post by Peter2 » Wed Oct 14, 2015 11:30 am

PDF 5.5, build 271 (yes it is old, but can not be updated)

Sometimes, after heavy load for AutoCAD and PDFsaver, AutoCAD hangs or crashes, and the relating process pdfsaver5.exe runs endlessly. It displays the small dialogue

"Print progress: Processing .... c:\myfile.dwg"

It also keeps running when AutoCAD is restarted and creates new PDF. The new PDF are done well, but the hanging process still hangs.

For the future: Will there be a self-control of the Saver to avoid the endless jobs?

Hello Peter,

Thanks for your report. As you are aware - we will not be able to fix the older build, but I will certainly bring this to our devs attention and have them consider it for the future.
