Path to save PDF files is not specified

Post by stevecomber » Wed Oct 19, 2011 11:56 am

Hi NovaPDF Guru's!

I'm calling novapv.exe with all of the following parameters from within my application's MSI:

/VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NOCANCEL /NORESTART /NOICONS /OEMApplication="Virtual Printer" /OEMCompany="Company Name" /OEMSaveFolder="C:\Program Files\Virtual Printer" /OEMSaveFile= /OEMSaveConflict=3 /OEMActionApp="C:\Program Files\Virtual Printer\App.exe" /PrinterName="Printer Name".

The installation appears to work fine and the printer gets created ok but when I try to generate a PDF using the printer, I get a message saying that the path to save PDF files is not specified.

However, if I run novapv.exe manually from the command line with exactly the same parameters, it works perfectly!

Please can you explain why this is happening as I need to package novapv.exe into my application's MSI and install it using the /VERYSILENT parameter?

Many thanks,

Steve

Hi, please make sure you are running the MSI as an administrator on the computer.
If you have further issues with this send us the post to our support team at support@novapdf.com
Thank you.

Thanks for the confirmation.

I've since got around this issue by adding a new module to my MSI that shells novapv.exe and passes the required parameters as arguments.

Regards,

Steve
