Re: PDF converter 4.0.7 and Windows 7, 64-bit

Here are a couple of troubleshooting tips for this issue: 1 - Check to which port the PDF printer is attached. The port should be "NUL:" on 64-bit systems, if not this means the installer was not able to create this port and attached the printer to the first available port. The solution in this case...

Re: problem with activation

You need to check the security settings under the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software. Everyone should have read/write access to this key, otherwise the printer cannot read and save its configuration. Using a fresh install this issue does not happen. The issue happens only when doing an OS u...

Re: Converting JPG to PDF

In order for BatchConvert to work, you need to be able to right-click on the document, select the Print option from the menu and have your document printed directly to the printer. This works well with IrfanView which you mention below but you need to properly configure the registry first. By defaul...

Re: LoadLibrary with x64 dll fails with error code 193

You cannot load the 32-bit CDINTF from a 64-bit application or DLL. We are currently testing a 64-bit version of CDINTF which should be available by end of September.

Re: The file being printed is already in pdf format. Print Conve

We have tested the PrintDisabled method again and it works as documented. Please make sure you are replacing "PrinterName" with the real name of your PDF Printer.

Re: Detect if user entered Owner vs. User password?

The control can only check if a given password is valid, it cannot read the passwords from the document. For e.g. if the user supplies one of the two passwords, the control can check if it is valid and internally sets a flag to whether the password is the owner or user passowrd, but it cannot read t...

Re: SetDefaultConfig

SetDefaultConfig sends notifications to all running applications to notify them of the change in printer settings. If one or more application does not respond to messages or takes a long time to respond, then you feel that the system hangs. There is a timeout of 1 minute after which the notification...

Re: Printing PDF files on client default printer inWebServer Env

The PDF Creator ActiveX can be inserted on a web page to do exactly that, i.e. print the PDF document rather than viewing it. For details about using the PDF Creator ActiveX on a web form, please refer to the technical notes section (http://www.amyuni.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1232.) In short: ...

Re: Which ImageOptions to use for PDF/A, PDF/X-1 or PDF/X-3?

Please note that the posts have been edited to fix a typing mistake... It is recommended to add the color profile only once when installing the printer and yes this requires elevated priveledges. If you need to give the end-user the ability to select between RGB and CMYK then you can create two Amyu...

Re: Which ImageOptions to use for PDF/A, PDF/X-1 or PDF/X-3?

IO_OUTPUTPDFA8, IO_OUTPUTPDFX1 and IO_OUTPUTPDFX3 are mutually exclusive and should not be combined. You should use only one of these options depending on the format you wish to generate. Note that early versions of PDF/A implementations were very hectic and each tool had its own interpretation of a...
