PDF Converter Install Error

Post by joe morris » Fri Jun 04 2004

Hello,
getting error message on certain W2k machines running the Amyuni PDF Converter install.exe.
"Error code 1 Unknown error"
"Spooler Error"
Any ideas? Am logged in as Admin, and have successfully installed on many identically configured workstations.
Thank You!
Joe

Hello,

This issue can be overcome by executing install -p to install the PDF
printer. The -p option prevents the install utility to try stopping and
restarting the spooler which may not be always possible under NT Server.

Hope this helps.

Thanks so much for you help........ THE "-p" SWITCH WORKED GREAT!

Is there somewhere I can get a list of the other switches available, and what they do (or undo)?

Thanks again!

Here is the list Joe:

Install - p: prevents the install utility to try stopping and restarting the spooler
Install -s: Installs the printer in silent mode
Install "My PDF Export": Installs a printer called "My PDF Export"
Install -u "Printer Name": To uninstall the printer

Hope this helps.

It's weird that when you run with "/?" to get all the options, from a command line:
install.exe /?
You get a ton of parameters, but not a word about "-p".

Hi,

The “-p” parameter basically told the install.exe not to restart the print spooler. This was removed a while back.

Thanks
