Amyuni PDF Converter 5.5.2.1 not working on Win Server 2012

Post by mihaicserei » Wed Sep 20 2017

Hello,

We are testing the latest Amyuni PDF Converter (5.5.2.1 version).

We have issues when running the tests on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016.
Trying to print on the above OSs, we get the following error: "Printer not activated, error code -60".
The tests are working with success on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Steps we followed:

Download the PDF Converter Developer Pro from:
https://www.amyuni.com/en/developer-too ... learn-more

Prerequisites:
Windows Server 2012 R2 64bit OS

Configure install.ini as:
[Default]
PrinterName="WatersLMS PDF Printer"
Licensee="Amyuni PDF Converter Evaluation"
LicCode="07EFCDAB0100010025AFF18045B8441306C5739F7DC52654D393BA9CECBA2ADE79E3762A65FFC354528A5F4A5811BE3204A0A439F5BA"

Run install.exe without any command line parameters.

The Amyuni Printer and driver seems to be installed ok although the installation log file contains some errors:
See below Install.log file content:

Printer setup succeeded
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Launch 'Install -u' to uninstall
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Run our test application on Windows Server 2012 (same workflow is working on Windows 7 / 10).
The printing process starts but the following error is shown:
“Printer not activated, error code -60”
I get this error on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016.

Is anything we need to configure on Windows Server OS, or what could be the cause of the errors we get with the latest Amyuni driver?

Hello,

You are encountering an “error code -60” because the sever option has not been enabled in the license codes you are using.

With the release of version v5.0 a few years ago we modified our licensing slightly. The application license is now associated with both the Application name and the target installation environment of the developer's application. We now offer “Desktop Application licenses” and “Server Application Licenses”.

The desktop application license allows the developer to install the developer edition of the Amyuni PDF Converter on a PC running XP, Vista, win7 and win8 windows operating systems. One desktop application license is required per application deployment. The application license is associated to a particular application name and not the number of installations or geographic region the application will be used in.

The server application license will allow the developer to install the developer edition of the Amyuni PDF Converter on a servers running win2003, win2008 and sever 2012 operating systems. One server application license is required per server deployment of the Amyuni PDF Converter. Additionally the server application license is also associated to a particular application name.
