novaPDF SDK v7: PDF file not created

Postby LFONTANA » Wed Jul 27, 2011 9:38 am

I've a problem with your SDK in my application.
I've developed a windows service (on a Windows Server 2003 R2 64bit server) that checks periodically on a folder. When a file has been found, the application opens and prints it as PDF in another location.
The service runs correctly, it opens the file and uses the novaPDF SDK v7 printer (configured by code using the NovaPdfOptions class) without errors. I also can see the file in the printer queue but the output file is never created. I'm sure it's not a security problem (my user is the server Administrator).
I don't have the possibilty to try to run my service on a 32bit machine.

Let me know if you need some more informations,

Regards,

Luigi

Hello,

Could you please tell us how did you configure the service, does it run as system administrator or as "Local system'. Also is important where did you configure novaPDF to save the files, is it a local folder or a network folder. The other novaPDF options are important too, so please export the profile you are using for novaPDF, or send us the source code where you create and set novaPDF options.
Please send this information by email to support@novapdf.com

Thank you.

Just another thing: if I use this profile with another application (like a form application or a console application) written with the same code of the service (for printing), the file is created correctly.

Thanks support,

Hello,

Could you please use a "public profile" instead of a "private profile". Even if your service runs with the administrator user, it might run in a different session and pick the wrong profile. Public profiles are visible to all users / sessions.

If the service still does not work, please send us a sample service application, for testing purpose, so we can replicate and investigate the problem here.

Also please send us the novaPDF exact version and build you are using with your application along with the other information.

Thank you.

Thank you Support,
using a "public profile" is the solution of my issue. Now, the printer works properly.

Luigi
