Dear,

How can a restricted user access the ActiveX component cdintf300.dll? Our application got error when a restricted user call the initial printer driver function.

Please help. Thanks!

Dear,

I figure out the root cause of the problem and found out that Window XP restricted user cannot add a new printer. So I suppose need to use DriverInit and point it to "Amyuni PDF converter" instead of using PDFDriverInit. However, I found that when I use Driverinit/PDFDriverinit function and point it to "Amyuni PDF converter", the pdf content is distorted. (No problem found when I use PDFDriverInit and point it to a new printer)

Please help.

Thanks
Tomy

Hello,

You can not use DriverInit/PDFDriverInit

PDFDriverInit will install a printer for the time your application is running and the printer is removed when you application closes while DriverInit will attach to an existing printer.

You can install the printer using our Installer and then in your application call DriverInit() once when launching your application (and not each time you print).

This should work.

Hi Joan,

Thanks for your reply.
I have tried to install the install.exe file and attach the printer "Amyuni PDF converter". However, when I tried to generate PDF file with DriverInit, the file size get much larger and the PDF is full of unrecognized characters. I didn't have such issue with PDFDriverInit attach with a new printer.

Pls help. Thanks

Hi,

I found that the PDF file properties are different between using DriverInit and PDFDriverInit. May I know what properties should I set with DriverInit in order to get the properties of PDFDriverInit? I am using 3.02 version and develop with PowerBuilder.


Thanks and Regards,
Tomy

The file settings are the same whether you use PDFDriverInit or DriverInit.

When using PDFDriverInit() you are installing a new printer, configuring it and printing to it.

When using DriverInit() you are using an already installed printer, you may configure it or you may be using its existant configuration and then printing to it.

When using DriverInit() make sure to set the settings you want and to call SetDefaultConfig() for these settings to take effect.

Hope this helps.
