Qlik NPrinting Designer-the remote procedure call failed.

Hello QlikGeeks,

I am getting the following error when i click on the 'Save & Close' option in the NPrinting editor. This is happening only when i am using the PPT template. May I know what is causing this error and How can I fix it?

This 'generally' means that the NPrinting Engine crashed or the QlikView Desktop where the NPrinting engine runs was forcibly closed.

Restart the NPrinting Engine and other NPrinting services (and or entire computer/computers) as well as your NPrinting server and try again.

It would also be helpful to provide the information requested by @Lech_Miszkiewicz on each support discussion where a specific issue is reported.

Kind regards...

Hi @Frank_S 

@CVR is using custom ppt file with custom corporate themes. I experienced some limitations when using custom files (for example I had issues creating charts in PPT), but I never had issues when saving.

The recommendation from my side would be to reporoduce the same report, but use/create new PPT template instead of importing one from the existing file.

cheers

Here are a few points from a previous post still to check @CVR

 

==========================================================================

...ensure that your organization uses the same NP designer for all users who develop reports and make sure that the designer is the same version as the NP server to prevent report corruption. One more thing is to ensure that all windows updates are applied to each NPrinting designer computer to ensure other key requirements ar met.

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/Content/NPrinting/DeployingQVNprinting/System-requirements_des...

Requirements

These Qlik NPrinting Designer requirements are for configurations where each Qlik NPrinting component is installed on a different computer. If you install more than one component (for example, the server and the engine) on the same computer, the minimum hardware requirements increase.

  • Qlik NPrinting Designer must be the same version as Qlik NPrinting Server.
  • .NET framework: 4.7.2 or later
  • etc

==========================================================================

July 13, 2021: Now if the above is met, then it's possible your install of MS office and or NPrinting Designer is damaged.

In this case:

  • Uninstall office
  • Uninstall NPrinting
  • Reinstall a supported version of office
  • Reinstall NPrinting Designer with version which matches the NPrinting server version

It is also possible that there might be problem with your windows user profile as well. To test this theory, just log into your computer with a different user if possible and try again.

 

If the above doesn't solve the issue, I suggest submitting a support request with the Qlik Support desk.

 

Kind regards...

Hi, 

At this stage we can see that it is not working for you...

Please spent time building your question so we can replicate the issue, including:

  • Providing version of all NPrinting components
  • Version of MsOffice
  • Version of OS used
  • Are you running supported configuration (check https://help.qlik.com)
  • Is this edited from the server or from your PC
  • What is your NPrinting user role?
  • Do you have any add-ins in you Office stack - those would be likely to cause similar issues
  • Template version (fresh/new PPT template or imported PPT file with corporate custom themes embeded)
  • Always provide labels in your post so correct versions of software can be identified

cheers

Lech

Thank you @Frank_S  for the quick response. I am also guessing something like that could be the reason because our Admin team made some changes recently. I will send them your recommendations and hope it will fix the error.

 

Thank you,

Only with PPT

Hi,

Only with PPT but with all PowerPoint templates or only with this specific template? In the second case it means it is and issue of this template. For example try to create a new template, add the same entities you have in the template with errors one-by-one and run a preview at every step to understand if it is a specific entity that generates the issue.

Best Regards,

Ruggero
